Kulika Uganda Summer Internship
One of Uganda's largest and oldest indigenous charities is now receiving applications for the Summer 2009 internship programme.
Kulika Uganda promotes sustainable organic agriculture and educational opportunities for the disadvantaged. Our goal is to make Africa a fairer, more equitable place through the empowering force of education; for the young and old, in both academic and traditional areas, particularly small-scale agriculture. Our partners include: DFID, the RSPB, Concern International, Manchester University, the University of Leeds, the British Council, Send a Cow, and the Tudor Trust, among others.
We are now receiving applications for our summer 2009 internship programme, for hard-working, self-motivated candidates with a strong academic record.
Applying candidates must:
- Be a post-graduate student with strong abilities in empirical research in either social or agricultural sciences
- Have had experience of living and working outside the UK (although not specifically in Africa)
- Be highly self-motivated and able to work in difficult environments
- Be available to work in Uganda for 8 weeks anytime between June and September 2009
Preferred applicants will have a research interest in:
- Appropriate renewable energy technologies

- The Internship
If you are selected for an internship, you will be working along side a dynamic and committed team of Ugandans, in a friendly, professional environment. Your work will be to undertake a research project into one or more of Kulika’s current projects, and will involve fieldwork travelling to some of Uganda’s more remote regions. By the end of the 8 weeks, the intern will have produced a piece of high-quality research, which may be published and will be used for the charity’s fundraising activities.
- The internship is an 8 week placement anytime between June and September 2009
- It is an unsalaried internship and flights must be self-funded
But Kulika will cover basic living expenses, accommodation and anti-malarials
