Are you interested

in volunteering?

VOLUNTEERING

 

Are you interested in coming to Uganda and working with Vision for Africa Intl.?

Then you are on the spot right here!

 

We are continuously dependant on new workers and the help of volunteers, to keep everything running day by day. Also in the clinic we are very delighted and thankful about shorter or longer working stays of people in the medical sector.

 

For younger people from 18 years on it is a great opportunity to come as a Volunteer, as you will be helping in various fields of work from 6–12 months. As for example with the orphaned children, where many young people loving God, loving children and loving Africa can invest themselves to invest in the future of Ugandan children. 

VOLUNTARY

WORK

 

 

Use your talents to serve here with us for 6–12 months! 

 

WHAT YOU CAN DO?

If you are between 18 and 99 years old and Jesus Christ does not only play a role in your life but is your managing director, then you are the right one for this job here.

 

VOLUNTEERING

Without any special knowledge you can start your voluntary work which lasts between 6 until 12 months. The job as volunteer is made for you if you finished school and you want to serve God in a very special way and use your time for a meaningful purpose, or if you already have work experience or you are in your studies and you want to get insight into a completely new field, then you are most welcome to do so. You should be ready for the things that God has prepared for you and which you will be doing here with us.

THERE ARE HOWEVER, STILL A FEW FACTORS & QUESTIONS YOU SHOULD TAKE TIME TO CONSIDER:

 

  • Life as a volunteer is not an exotic long-term holiday;
    - are you prepared to invest your time and abilities?

 

  • Demands will be made on you every day in your work here;
    - are you a stable person who can work indepandantly?

 

  • You will receive no salary;
    -how will you finance this time?

 

  • We are not a Bible school or discipleship training school (even though we all go through the Holy Spirit’s university together);
    -are you living in stable relationship with God?

 

  • We live in community almost 24 hours a day. You will live at your place of work;
    -are you capable of living in community and able to make compromises for this purpose?

  • This is Africa. Many things are different, both in the culture and in the way people work and relate to each other;
    -can you adapt to new situations and circumstances?

You may not have an answer to every question immediately. Pray about it and talk with your spiritual leader. Ask God, and let HIM show you the way. Have a look at the other volunteer sites (see menu on the left) where you will find a lot of information about the work, what we do and how we live. Read the reports and testimonies of former volunteers to see how they got on, what they experienced and what moved them. If you come to us in Uganda, you will probably first spend 4 weeks in Imst/Austria, doing practical work with our "Life in Jesus Christ" project. Here you will get to know yourself better in some respects and will have your first taste of voluntary work…


Of course you can also contact us with any questions concerning volunteering.

Yours,


Gerd and Regina Rumpf (Volunteers-Leaders) and the Uganda-Team
