Women are very vital in helping to fight poverty at the grass roots level. The mothers in the village want to ensure the best for their children and household. Volunteers can engage in women empowerment activities such as organizing seminars and activities that can help build their self-esteem.
Business and Entrepreneurial training
Through the VICOBA initiative, Kitega Community Centre equips community members with business and entrepreneurial skills. Volunteers interested in developing rural entrepreneurs can get involved and work alongside community Banking groups to help them achieve their dreams.
Volunteers can also help to provide medical services to the community, something that is ideal for volunteers who work as doctors and/or nurses. Volunteers can help out at local clinics and hospitals.
Kitega Community Centre also welcomes doctors who have mobile medical equipment and who can work in the village directly.
The Kitega Centre also welcomes volunteers who can teach a vocational skill such as Handcraft, carpentry, welding, Electronic and phone repair, photography, clay work, Computer Literacy, tailoring, and more.
These are special skills that can benefit the community and above all, benefit the disabled children.
If you are passionate about working with prisons, Kitega Community Centre’s Philemon Ministry gives inmates special training that can be helpful after they finish their sentences, and encourages them to live dignified lives.
