(ICT) Computer Training & Sewing Volunteer Project
Volunteers will also spend some of their time making sure that the local teachers with limited resources know how to use computers. Your valuable contribution on the project will help improve computer literacy education and internet access for mostly children and women in rural villages in Uganda.
In this 21st century, computer literacy is a skill which is valued almost as highly as standard literacy! It is therefore a huge advantage to learn the basics of computer use, and this is something which volunteers can help with. By sharing their knowledge of IT with students and teachers alike, volunteers increase the future prospects of each individual they help.
Just like children around the world, Ugandan pupils are fascinated by computers and eager to learn how to use them. Teaching such a useful skill is invaluable, both to individuals and their communities. From developing a better understanding of computers, job opportunities which would not previously have been available, present themselves.
Any college student, IT specialist or professional who uses computer to do their college work will have sufficient skills. Be knowledgeable in windows operation, Ms. Word, Ms. Excel (spread sheet), Ms. Access, Ms. Power Point. Volunteers must be 17years or older, flexible and adaptable. Have good communication in English language. Ability to work in a cross-cultural environment and adjust to any challenges in working conditions

“ Volunteering in Uganda with PCCS was a magical experience words cannot describe. I loved every bit of my two weeks in Uganda, right from being picked up from the airport, my orientation and spending my days teaching at the local school. Alyson W - USA ”
