Important message about the COVID-19 Coronavirus

In an effort to care for all of our personnel, families, and mission around the world, EMI has been taking a number of steps in response to the progress of COVID-19.

Location-specific Crisis Management Teams remain in place to monitor COVID developments, inform, and care for EMI personnel. Decisions about official EMI travel (including project travel) domestically and internationally are being made on a case-by-case basis by Office Directors in locations concerned. EMI’s worldwide offices remain in varying states of closure with personnel working remotely or from home.

We continue to actively monitor the situation and will respond to new information affecting our worldwide ministry and teams. We view the COVID-19 Coronavirus as an opportunity to live out the gospel and our faith in Jesus through the ministry of EMI.

Interns in the Uganda office enjoy a rich, cross-cultural, communal living experience. Each morning you will walk about 10 minutes down a narrow dirt road from the intern house to the EMI office. You will most likely be sharing your living space with like-minded interens who are just beginnig their careers. 

We offer our ministry partners full construction management services as well as design services. So working in the Uganda office means that you will have the opportunityh to visit active construction projects and offer design support to our construction managers. 

While specific projects for this term have not been confirmed yet, our most common projects involve the planning, design, and construction of primary school, secondary schools, universities, hospitals, clinics and community centers. Most of the projects that we work on are within Uganda, but we are also involved with ongoing projects in Burundi and the Democratic Republic of Congo. 

You will work on an inter-disciplinary team made up of experienced architects, civil engineers, structural engineers, surveyors and construction managers and will have the valuable opportunity to learn disciplines other than your own. 

Uganda is a relatively easy country to travel within and you will have the opportunity to explore. Previous interns have gone hiking, on safari, climbed volcanos, gone camping, visited co-workers at their homes, taken overnight busses to Kenya and become involved in the local community, and enjoyed restaurants, concerts and shopping in downtown Kampala.
