2 International Workcamp Projects Uganda Pioneers Association (UPA) is a youth voluntary organization working with community projects, workcamps and volunteer exchange. UPA was founded in 1989 by young Ugandans with the aim of mobilizing youth to contribute to community development through voluntary work. UPA has a national secretariat located in Kampala, Nansana and currently operates with 8 Branches in seven districts in Uganda. The Aim of UPA: To promote community based development, intercultural cooperation and youth participation through voluntary work. The Objectives of UPA To encourage the dynamic age group (youth) to take leading roles towards development. To promote and improve natural and acquired skills useful to the community. To promote and exchange cultures to create friendship and mutual understanding. To contribute to the development of community based social services. Workcamps have been used as means for building local communities. Volunteers from all over the world come together and through common efforts to build community centers, schools, health units, small scale farming plots and much more has been constructed. We also engage in awareness creation through sensitizing communities on topical. Thematic issues including HIV/AIDS, Conflict management, Community sanitation, Reproductive health, Cultural heritage, environment conservation, Peace building to mention a few. Friendship cross borders has been created and barriers between people from different cultures broken down. Workcamps as a tool for development Through the workcamps; the Participants acquire skills, experience, get new ideas, explore or discover their potentialsand are exposed to development issues especially through the exchange of good practices. The Community benefits through: participation, education, sensitization, poverty reductions and new structures. In UPA has planned a total of 14 workcamps. The projects are hosted by the UPA branches and partner projects or community groups across the country. The themes of the workcamps vary from, Environment conservation and Sanitation, Sustainable Development, construction, children, agriculture, sports, cultural heritage and HIV/AIDS. You are most welcome to join UPA for these projects.

International volunteers 250 Euros International participants are required to pay a fee of 250 Euros. The fee covers pick up from the airport or bus station upon arrival in Uganda, Orientation at the UPA guesthouse, local transport to and from the workcamp, food and accommodation during the workcamp. The fee also contributes to the running of activities taking place during the workcamp and communication prior to the camp.

3 Please note The fee does not cover transport back to the airport after the project. Volunteers interested in being taken back to the airport shall be required to ask UPA for the arrangement. It will cost the volunteer an extra Euros for this service. To allow the best preparations, participants are advised to arrive a day before commencement of the project applied for. Accommodation is basic. In most cases workcampers will be sleeping in community halls or school classrooms. Workcampers should bring mosquito nets and beddings.

Cancellation of participation Cancellation of participation before the project resumes while in Uganda attracts a 50% refund only.

Project Title Project Date 13 th 31 st May 2014 Duration Project Code Project Host Project Theme Project Location Project Background International Workcamp on Construction and Community Sanitation in Luweero 3 Weeks UPA/002/14 Basajjansolo Memorial Training Centre, Luweero. Improved security and health for a better living The workcamp shall take place in Galuwero Zone L.C1 Village, Luwero Town Council, Luwero District. The Project site is located 2km on Ngoma rd, from Luwero, 60km North of Kampala on Kampala - Gulu Road. Luwero District Is located in the central part of Uganda boarded by Wakiso District in the south, Nakasongola in the north, Nakaseke in the North-west Luweero Town Council has a fast growing Urban setting with a fast growing population. Like any development, the area will not escape the problem of formation of slums and its associated challenges of poor sanitation and hygiene. Inevitably, the high rural- urban immigration practices in all growing towns incur a high impact on the declining sanitation standards while on the other hands the associated problems also continues to grow at very high rate. If this deteriorating sanitation and hygiene standards goes unchecked then the populations particularly children and women are exposed to high risks or become vulnerable to the possibilities of the outbreaks of deadly but would be preventable diseases like cholera, Malaria and dysentery. Basajjansolo Memorial Training Centre (BMTC) is a project of Basajjansolo Community Development Association (BACODA), a community-based organisation founded and registered in 2003 under Ref NO. CD of Luwero District Community Development Department. BACODA is committed to work for the plight of HIV/AIDS, other disadvantaged orphans and vulnerable children through offering them basic education, life skills and career training. BMTC today offers education to 240 children aged 6 14 years most of them orphans, half orphans, vulnerable children and those living with families earning less than 1 US dollar a day. Other children are living in the boarding section of the school. At the moment the

8 school has still a temporary fencing around the school perimeters. To provide maximum security and to fulfill the requirements of the ministry of education a wall fence as to be built.

Boowa Kibira lies 40km on Kampala-Gulu road.

15 Project Background Kibira mixed farm was started 2004 with the purpose of generating income but also to demonstrate to the farmers of Kibira village and the environs the better and improved farming practices. Around 75% of Ugandans live on subsistence farming as the main employment and source of livelihood. The poor farming practices involving poor seed selection, improper spacing and poor storage practices have lead to low production and very little is saved for income. Kibira demonstration farm is on 5 hectares of land rearing animals and growing different types of crops. There are chicken, goats and cows. On the side of crops we have coffee plants, different types of banana plants, maize crops, different fruit trees, sweet potatoes, cassava, and ground nuts. The farm aims at providing a place where farmers can visit to learn the better and improved farming methods order to increase on the production for a better livelihood. During the period of the workcamp it is harvesting time for the coffee and maize plantation of the farm. The workcampers will be involved in the harvesting process. The farm is surrounded by school, which shall be involved in the workcamp through engaging with the children in games and sports and in painting the outside walls of the four schools. It involves painting and also drawing decorative pictures on all of them. Project Objectives Teach children and teachers new (sport)games Beautification of the schools around the farm through painting and artwork Intercultural exchange with the school pupils through sports and games To promote the spirit of volunteering through engaging in the harvesting process Activities Painting and drawing pictures on the building of 4 different schools Harvesting coffee and maize Sports and games with children in schools Expected Outcome Intercultural exchange experience Cultural and educational visits Children and teachers knowledgeable of new free time activities 4 schools newly painted with new art designs Coffee and maize of the farm harvested Do several community walks to watch different tree species, birds, butterflies and monkeys.
