Kimi is an Island on Lake Victoria the second largest lake in the world. This Island although it is only 30 minutes away from Ngamba Island which is the Chimpanzee Sanctuary, it is one of the Islands in Uganda with the poorest population with no access to healthcare services at all. It is now six months since TASAAGA started making outreaches to this Island with an aim of enabling people on it to access healthcare services. The most common cases of diseases on this Island is Malaria and HIV/AIDS related diseases.
During the week volunteers stay in the village and on weekends they stay in Entebbe at the TASAAGA volunteer house located closer to internet services, and has electricity, shower rooms, and running water. This house is also surrounded by numerous resort beaches.
This role is suitable for only people with medical training backgrounds who are self motivated and self-directed who want to make a difference in a disadvantaged poeple's lives. This volunteer opportunity is available both people willing to commit short time like 1 to 2 weeeks and those willing to stay longer than that. Groups, couples and individual travelers are welcoome.
