DATES: FOUR TO TWELVE WEEK PLACEMENT (NEGOTIABLE)
LOCATION: URBAN UGANDA

THE ROLE
 This programme is a sport development programme that seeks to promote activity and fun for children in Uganda. Volunteers will be making a critical contribution to a charity focused on supporting the world’s most vulnerable children access meaningful education. You do not need experience in development, or even training as a sports coach, all you need is enthusiasm and drive to take on an exciting new challenge. This placement offers a unique opportunity to boost your skills, whilst making a real and lasting contribution to a humanitarian organisation. There is also the chance to supplement your volunteering with safaris and trips to the beautiful coastline.

This is a wonderful opportunity for you to learn about the development sector through an immersive experience, and to make a lasting contribution to Street Child and its aim to offer educational access to out of school children all over the world.

THE ORGANISATION
Street Child's aim is to create educational opportunities for some of the world’s most vulnerable children. We began our work in 2008 in Sierra Leone working with a small number of street children, nine years later we have helped to
transform the lives of more than 100,000 children across Sierra Leone, Liberia, Sri Lanka and Nepal. In 2017 we launched our first project in Nigeria helping children impacted by conflict in the North East of the country. And now in 2018, we are launching in Uganda, where there is a serious lack of formal education available to street connected children.


TERMS
The successful applicant must be prepared to live and work in austere conditions when required, and to travel independently to urban, rural and remote project sites. The applicant must be able to manage his or her work plan and report regularly to the team on progress, and will be considered a valued member of the team.

A fundraising commitment will be required of the successful applicant, for which support will be provided by Street Child UK staff. Flights and food are at the applicant’s own expense. Accommodation will be provided by Street Child at a fixed cost, and will require sharing rooms with another volunteer of any gender. A detailed breakdown of costs and expenses will be provided for those applicants selected for interview.


Whilst this is initially a voluntary role, for applicants with relevant experience who have the ability to add strategic value, there is potential to attain a more permanent position with the organisation.
