Why Intern With FSD Jinja Uganda

We have been providing hands-on international development and cultural immersion experience to students and professionals since 2007. Our internship programs supply building blocks for establishing international development careers, strengthening graduate school applications, fulfilling practicum requirements, and cultivating professional relationships.

Our hands-on training program teaches interns practical skills, development issues, and cultural competencies necessary for collaborative commmunity-driven project work.

Work

Interns are placed with partner organizations that optimally match their interests, skills and objectives. These organizations are directed by community leaders who collaborate with interns on project work.

Live

Live

Rather than working and living as a group, FSD interns live individually with host families and work individually with partner organizations to ensure cultural immersion.

Program Opportunity Categories

We offer participants practical experience of applying sustainable development approaches​ to support locally managed grassroot groups and organizations that are working to improve the welfare of marginalized communities in Uganda.  The ultimate goal is to support students in learning how to achieve sustainable development results in a cross-cultural setting while producing positive outcomes for local communities they work with.
