How We Work

how we workUPA uses her international youth volunteer exchange programme as a medium to fulfill her development goal. Since 1989 UPA has been engaged in organizing short term national and international Volunteer (STV) projects in the form of workcamps..

In 2002 UPA initiated new volunteering projects for Medium- and Long-Term Volunteer (MLTV) placements on community projects.

An MLTV is a volunteer willing to work for a longer period of time, usually over three months.

More than in STVs, MLTVs not only exchange cultures, ideas and knowledge, but also get deeply immersed in Ugandan culture

since they work with Ugandans and often stay with host families.

Tasks for MLTVs include teaching in communities or schools, working with HIV/AIDS or health clinics, conducting utreaches,

organization work or taking care of children in orphanages or children's homes. Volunteers also get exposed to cultural diversity, new skills, develop self-esteem, discover talents and potentials, share and exchange good practices, ideas and experience.
