UGANDA VILLAGE PROJECT

Healthy Uganda

We envision a future in which all Ugandan communities will have the means to effectively create and implement their own health and development solutions.

We strive to uphold this mission in the following ways:

Working on project development in collaboration with our local non-governmental and governmental partners in Iganga District, as well as the communities involved in the projects

Advocating for community health and development through networking inside and outside the district, and supporting efforts on the ground by local partners

Focusing on understanding the epidemiology and etiology of public health problems in Iganga in order to inform and support direct service projects

Implementing sustainable public health and development programs that have real impact in communities

Creating culturally-appropriate project design

Utilizing interdisciplinary long and short term volunteer teams of professionals and students which seek to support on the ground efforts of Uganda Village Project and its partners

Learning about and experiencing the culture and daily lives of the Ugandan people

Including in-depth planning, development, and evaluation to ensure outcomes are achieved
