Just Empowering! reviewed by Shelby Chau
"For two weeks, I was volunteering with a women’s group located in Kasaana. The women made handicrafts such as mats, beads, and bracelets. The project was flexible; I was involved in activities such as product development, fundraising, and improving marketing. I found this experience very rewarding, as I was working directly with the women. I was able to meet many amazing individuals during this trip. I personally enjoy hands-on activities, so this was a very enjoyable experience! I stayed with Godfrey and his family during my time. Not only did they prove that Ugandans were very hospitable, but they were also very accommodating. Godfrey was very well informed and flexible. He let me see different aspects of Uganda, by introducing me to a local school, the women I volunteered with, and also different cultural aspects. Everyone I had interacted with was very friendly and eager to learn about my culture as well. With this project, I know my impact will be going very far! To conclude, I had an amazing time filled with culture and empowerment. I highly recommend!"

A challenging, rewarding and inspiring experience reviewed by Mark Kelleher
"I spent 3 months in Western Uganda working as an ENVenture Business Development Fellow, and I can honestly say that it has been one of the best professional experiences of my life so far.

I was placed with an established CBO (Community-Based Organisation) that had a history of social impact, environmental stewardship and promotion of clean energy alternatives. My role at the CBO was to take their organisation's experience, their skills and talents, and assist them with the creation of a new profit-making commercial venture, selling clean energy goods in a rural, largely off-grid environment.

To be clear, we created an entrepreneurial business based on profit incentives, but the founding principles of this company were deeply rooted in the local community, in ensuring that the products for sale offered efficiency-savings for the users, adhered to strict environmental standards and outperformed established, 'dirty' alternatives.

To be sure, not everything about this volunteering experience was easy. In addition to needing experience and knowledge of the clean-energy and energy access sectors, candidates need to be business-minded, and either come in to the project with a degree in business, or ideally, experience working in start-ups and/or small businesses. What is really needed is flexibility, motivation and maneuverability as you will face many challenges, diverse contexts and need to think on your feet and have a quick, problem-solving approach to your duties.

But if this does sound like you, what you will gain from the experience is three months in which you will co-manage your own project, establish a new ethical business in a young and fast-moving industry, have a set of concrete and sustainable deliverables and a set of fantastic, long-term working and social relationships with your CBO, with the other fellows on your project and within the industry.

As I said at the top of this review, taking part in the ENVenture Business Development Fellowship has been an incredible rewarding experience. If you enjoy a challenge, if you want to grow your skills and if you want to make a positive difference then apply!"
