Here is a fantastic opportunity to go live and work in Africa. The first offer is to intern at an architecture and engineering firm in Kampala, Uganda but the Musana Volunteer program also offers a wide range of volunteer opportunities. It is also wonderfully run by my sister who will help out and answer questions every step of the way.

Dear Potential Architecture and Structural Engineer Interns,
My name is Hannah Willow Gray. I am an experienced Volunteer Coordinator, originally from upstate New York, currently living in Uganda, East Africa. Over the past 5 years I have lived on and off in Kampala, Uganda, working for various NGOs and International organizations. I am now committed to starting my own volunteer program called "Musana Volunteers" in order to link up international volunteers with reputable organizations, businesses, and companies in Uganda. I know that many of you are interested in getting work experience in a developing country but aren't sure of the best way to get started. That is where I come in.
I will organize your Volunteer/Internship Placement in Uganda, find Housing, organize Transportation, set-up Safaris and other weekend trips, and provide you with all the necessary information you need to live in Kampala, Uganda for any length of time. I will send you a detailed budget of the total cost of your stay here. Since I have lived here for a few years, I have a good understanding of the cost of living and how to find the best bargains. I have noticed that many volunteer organizations found on the internet tend to have large administrative fees and I felt my local expertise could help cut down on those costs. I will organize your entire trip, except the flight, and help you adjust quickly to your temporary home in Uganda, for only a small administrative cost. I guarantee you will fall in love with East Africa, as I have.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions, concerns, or comments!
Hannah Willow Gray
