Volunteer with RIDO


Masaka, Uganda, Africa

We are a charity working with communities for sustainable development

We are a nonprofit with a mandate to operate in in Masaka District, Uganda (Masaka District Local Government -CD5421). RIDO was established in 2007 to spread awareness about HIV/AIDS. We expanded activities to tackling environmental issues while working hand in hand with local communities.

RIDO has a team of community volunteer experts who make it possible to accomplish projects with the support of external volunteers and interns. Our focus in Kyesiiga Sub-County is on nutrition, health improvement, poverty reduction, and environmental stability, areas that were pointed out by women of the area.

Most adults in the community grew up as vulnerable children due to the result of HIV/AIDS. As children, they headed households without the critical guidance of adults. Now they are constantly seeking knowledge and information about ways in which they can improve their wellbeing and that of their own children in a sustainable way.
