Youths As Volunteers Integrated Network Society volunteers helping children wash their hands Uganda

At Youths As Volunteers Integrated Network Society (YAVINS) we are looking for individuals committed to making a difference in the lives of the Ugandan people. We offer support to the communities in which we work, while maintaining the upmost respect for the cultures there. Our goal is not to change the cultures and traditions, but to offer support to the local people.
