Call for applications – Mama & Family Project e-internship!


As part of our Covid-19 response, SOGH decided to not perform any field work this summer. No interns from Uganda or any other country will meet the local communities we work with. In fact, their and your health are a priority for us. However, the evaluation of the Mama & Family project, a project organized and managed by SOGH and our Ugandan partner UDHA (Uganda Development and Health Associates).  still needs to go ahead. Therefore, join us on our first e-internship!

As an e-intern, you will contribute to the Mama & Family Project 2019/2020 report, analysing quantitative clinical data that has been collected throughout the current project period and qualitative data on Covid-19 response in the villages encompassed in the project. All of this meeting online with your e-internship fellows and the evaluation coordinators.


The entire internship will take place online.
“Cannot travel for field work? No worries, you can still be part of Mama & Family Project evaluation. Join us this summer! Let’s work together to improve the health of families”
