Your Schedule

22nd June – 31st August


Each Monday, UniTED will run a training introducing new themes and tools for that week. Each team will also have at least one tutorial with a UniTED tutor each week, usually on a Thursday or Friday to focus on the particular needs of your venture.

Teams will work from 9 to 5 on weekdays, with some afternoons left open for rest and relaxation. Socials around Kampala will be organised every evening – such as going to an acoustic music night, pub quiz, or learning how to cook traditional Ugandan dishes. On weekends, UniTED will help you arrange activities exploring Uganda (see below). 

By the end of your time in Uganda, you’ll have made some true friends, learnt a huge amount about global social entrepreneurship, and have a fledgling venture which you will be able to continue to support remotely to have a unique and sustainable impact on Uganda’s development.
