Summer 2018: Join a Group of Volunteers to help make a Ugandan Community Self-Sustainable
July 1 - July 15, 2018
RIDO (Rural Integrated Development Organization) is a Non-Profit Community-Based Organization located in the Masaka District of Uganda. Established in 2007 to spread awareness about HIV/AIDS prevention to the grassroots communities, RIDO expanded its activities to tackling environmental issues working hand in hand with local communities of Masaka.
In partnership with these communities, our current efforts are in addressing a variety of development issues they have identified. Their most pressing issues are poor health, environmental conservation, lack of skills for development and poverty. Together with the communities some of the projects we are working on are the construction of underground water tanks, energy saving stoves, vegetable gardens, tree planting and skills development.
RIDO aims to improve the livelihood status of the rural-based people of Kyesiiga and other communities in Masaka while working with women and youth and giving support to the most vulnerable in the community.
