Uganda

Uganda has been described as the ‘Pearl of Africa’ (by Winston Churchill). It is about the size of the UK and is bordered by 5 countries. Lake Victoria and the River Nile, which flows through much of the country, makes Uganda one of the most fertile countries in Africa. YWAM Uganda was established in 1986 and now has 6 main operating locations throughout Uganda.

The DTS will be at the YWAM Hopeland base in Jinja, Southern Uganda, which is a 70 acre campus set in pleasant grounds overlooking Lake Victoria. The DTS is run in English and the DTS outreach will be in either another part of Uganda or another East African country.

After the DTS there is a wide choice of opportunities for the placement in several YWAM locations in Uganda. These include working at the YWAM pre-school & primary school, reaching out to young people through sport at the Discovery Centre in Hopeland, working in healthcare, or with a ministry to prostitutes, or serving on the evangelism team, which includes prison, hospital, street children & disabled children ministry and working in a home for babies & children in crisis in Soroti.
