MESSAGE FROM BETH HALEY, RN & CEO MDU:
I founded Making a Difference in Uganda after traveling to Africa to volunteer in 2017. I had been volunteering for many years, however, Uganda was nothing like anything I had ever experienced. I met so many local people who had a strong dedication to helping others. I wanted to give other people an opportunity to experience how special Uganda is and use their skills and experiences to make a difference.
Making a Difference in Uganda focuses on partnering with local organizations and growing their programs through donations, sponsorship and volunteers. It is founded on the belief that giving people encouragement, hope, and support, is the best way to help them achieve success. We have a range of programs, primarily focusing on medical outreaches, education, women’s empowerment and caring for young people living in the slums.
Having spent much time in the country, we understand how to support local customs and initiatives. We have a range of programs, primarily focusing on medical outreaches in rural areas and the slums, education and caring for young people living in the slums.
When you volunteer with Making a Difference in Uganda, you have a unique opportunity to truly make a difference and make a positive change in people’s lives.
