MACERUDET is looking to get involved with teachers from Great Britain and other western nations in order to bring a variety of skills to the project. The Mmanze community is located 22 miles northwest of Kampala, between towns of Gombe and Semuto, on Matugga Ssemuto Road, in Masulita Sub-County, Wakiso District, Uganda. Teachers can help in taking normal classes, assisting the teaching staff and conducting extracurricular activities.
“The community is comprised of several Primary and Secondary Schools, where you are able to share your knowledge in every kind of subject, with children keen to learn,” said Marika Felber, a 20-year-old German volunteer at the Ugandan Community Based Organization (CBO). “You even have the chance to train them in Computer Sciences, or any kind of sports. With MACERUDET’s help I get entry to the local language, the local food and the daily life, including their problems as well.”
The community is keen to welcome teachers with true Ugandan hospitality. Participants can enjoy activities such as walks to see the monkeys and other animals within the area, learning about the various local medicinal plants, white-water rafting and safaris.
Marika added: “Volunteering is a great chance to make an impact in our world; it changes the lives of individuals. You take your country, your lifestyle and your traditions with you to another country, and in turn you get to know those of the natives. All-in-all, I just recommend to you to come to Uganda, to the Mmanze community. It will be a part of your life, one that you will never forget.”
