In the period of March 2013-Januray 2015 MTÜ Mondo is sending two volunteers to the capital on Uganda, Kampala, with the support of the „Youth in Action“ programme.

The new volunteers’ tasks will include supporting the organisation and marketing of the newly established cafeteria. At the same time, the volunteers will also hold life skills and health education courses for their fellow local volunteers.
This project has been funded with support from the European Commission.
