Action Sitaru is the international volunteering component supporting Phase 3 of LBA's programme.

Phase 3 of the programme cycle is a unique stage where volunteers are able to join Team LBA & the communities we work with to make a real difference.

Sitaru means 3 in Lugisu, the local language. Action Sitaru reflects that real action taking place during the third phase - the Implementing Stage - of the programme cycle.

Hundreds of volunteers have previously joined Team LBA in Manafwa, playing an intricate and exciting role in the programme cycle. Volunteers live and work in the community whilst contributing to the completion of Phase 3. LBA follows a strict policy to promote responsible volunteering and ensure volunteer projects are needs based and respectful of local values and culture. 

After undergoing an intensive training from LBA, volunteers team up with community groups to complete the implementation stage of the projects. Not only do volunteers, both international and from the local community, assist in the construction of water tanks and protected water sources, volunteers also help organising and training project committees set up to increase maintenance and sustainability of projects, and provide WASH & stove related training to the surrounding community. Many of the international volunteers also fundraise for the projects they work on so can see first hand directly where their donation is going.

If you have time - whether it be on holiday in Uganda, an entire two week trip to Uganda or several months of sabbatical leave, or are looking for a corporate trip with a difference - and more importantly if you have the energy and enthusiasm, get in touch with us to learn more about joining Action Sitaru.
