Volunteer at Happy Girls Project

Get Involved, first hand

We believe that every girl should have access to menstrual hygiene products and education. Your support can help us in achieving our mission because together, we can do much more. Join us in making a difference in the lives of these girls and women.

You want to join our efforts but not sure where to start? Volunteer your time and take advantage of this incredible opportunity to lend your support. It’s a great way to contribute to our cause, and every little bit counts towards paving the path for a better tomorrow.

Who can join? At Happy Girls Project, we are inclusive of everyone and will welcome any soul that wishes to help. Note that we welcome volunteers both on site and remotely!

 

What are we looking for? Individuals that can adapt easily and are willing to learn and do diverse tasks. We are a small team so whenever it's needed, we need all hands on deck! We love creativity and proactivity. And above all, we are looking to build a fun team. After all, it's all about the human fit!

We are looking for volunteers to help us in the following areas:

  • Fundraising / Grant application 

  • Networking

  • Social Media

  • Website Editing

  • Program Development 

  • Project Management 

  • Public Health 

  • Teaching

If you have a skill you feel will benefit our project, please get in touch.

What about accomodation and food on site? Being a small organization, we do not have the means to provide accommodation and food but have made deals with nearby hostels/hotels that have welcomed previous volunteers. Depending on how long you will be staying with us, we can draw a tailored budget with you beforehand - with full transparency. We will provide you with a sim card and an internet connection. We can also help with visa questions. We can arrange pick up and drop off from/to the airport.

 

We look forward to hearing from you!

Kyla, 2023 Volunteer (Australia)

It made me nervous at first to step off the beaten path while in Uganda. However it was the highlight of my trip and has had long lasting effects. I have never cried leaving a country before, i have always been ready for the next adventure, however when my time was over at Happy Girls Project, I really felt like I was leaving something wonderful behind. It moved me to my core. At Happ Girls, you become part of the process in achieving large outcomes for girls. A privilege to witness and contribute to. I felt safe, cared for, valued and overall had so much fun!
I will be back and will continue contributing to Happy Girls in the future.

I could not have wished for a better first volunteering experience. Harriet has such a beautiful heat and soul. She is so dirven, open-minded and she is a lot of fun!  Not only have I been able to apply my business skills to this project but I learnt to many more things! Everything you do with Happy Girls Project has a direct impact on people - there is nothing more rewarding than putting a smile on a kid's face. I was in complete immersion and I loved it. Harriet was by my side all along the way and made my experience in Uganda more authentic and fun than I could have ever wished for. I would do it all over again a thousand times!

I had the incredible privilege of working with the Happy Girls Project through a volunteering program with Wheeling2Help. Their unwavering dedication to women’s empowerment and their initiative of providing reusable pads to girls in Africa is truly commendable. Witnessing their impact first-hand, I can confidently say that they are making transformative changes in the communities they serve. If you’re looking to support a cause that’s genuinely making a difference, Happy Girls Project is the one. Highly recommend!

If you are interested, they would be more than happy to give you direct feedback!
