SDG 5: Gender equality, SDG 10: Reduced inequalities, SDG 17: Partnerships for the goals

Hadijah works with important stakeholders like the Parliament of Uganda, Electoral Commission, Equal Opportunities Commission and coordinates the drafting of work plans and reporting progress of the programme activities.

I became a volunteer wanting to support communities in achieving the Agenda 2030, reduce discrimination and improve women’s political participation, and have gotten a wealth of experience from my work, coupled with the satisfaction of being able to impact the lives of many.

SDG 16: Peace, justice and strong institutions

A lo largo de mi carrera, siempre he tenido la idea de que un día me uniría al programa de Voluntarios de las Naciones Unidas (VNU). Me inspiré en los muchos Voluntarios de la ONU que conocí durante mis años de servicio en África. Si bien la mayoría eran personas jóvenes y activas, también había gente mayor, como yo ahora; gente con una fuerte visión del voluntariado. Afortunadamente, tuve éxito en mi solicitud y me siento bendecido por trabajar en mi segunda asignación dentro del programa VNU.

SDG 16: Peace, justice and strong institutions

Throughout my career, I always had the idea of one day joining the United Nations Volunteers (UNV). I was inspired by the many UN Volunteers I met during my years of service in Africa. While most were young, active individuals, there were also older ones like me now, with a strong vision of volunteerism. Fortunately, I was successful in my application and am blessed to now be in my second UNV assignment.

Uganda is home to over half a million refugees residing in settlements and urban centres all over the country. Earlier this year the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) recognised Uganda as one of the best countries in the world for refugees to live, since they are given opportunities to work, freedom of movement, access to education, health care and a secure environment.

Kampala, Uganda: I started volunteering at UNICEF Kampala in September 2010, after working for twelve years for a charity organisation in Uganda which works with vulnerable groups (women, children and people with disabilities) to overcome poverty and malnutrition in sustainable ways.

As a new volunteer, I had great expectations and was full of ambition. I looked forward to meeting and working with new people at UNICEF, gaining new skills and using my experience to contribute to making a positive difference in the lives of women and children in Uganda.
