Ugandan Volunteership Program Application


 The Field of Hope Ugandan Volunteership Program is one of the avenues used to provide opportunities to the young talents to gain valuable experience in the field. This program seeks to advance technical competencies of passionate fresh graduates, allowing them to apply their college-gained skills and knowledge to “real” field situation under the different pillars with the guidance of our technical team. Whereas this is a short-term engagement, we believe the individual leaves when he/ she has gained substantial leadership skills and the ability to create a positive change in their communities hence constituting the next generation of agricultural leaders.

Through our committed donors and board to raising competent agriculturists who will spur change, a volunteer will be entitled to financial assistance for housing and living stipends for the 2-3 months that they will be working with Field of Hope. They will be exposed to all the three pillars of our Programs but with special emphasis on the pillar the volunteer falls directly under.
