2018 Uganda Sixty Feet Staff and Government Engagement

Opportunity Overview

Give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. It’s an overused expression but it’s true. This engagement trip focuses on strategic development of the Sixty Feet Team on the ground. The Sixty Feet Team will cross paths with almost 2000 children and teens in a given year. By focusing direct ministry on them, you leverage your ministry efforts

Who we need:
1. Christian counselor with a few years of experience, to help trained Ugandan counselors and social workers on best practices and techniques. It would also be an opportunity for them to discuss specific cases and learn good practices of record and note keeping.
2. Those with soft skills training those seeking employment.
3. People who can teach basic computer skills such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint and a program or curriculum of training you can leave behind with us, our team could benefit greatly from these simple things.
4. Those with several years experience teaching in a classroom, we have primary school teachers who could benefit from your experience, teaching tips, and lesson planning.
