Have you ever considered getting involved with EMI overseas longer term? Would you like to explore what that could look like for you and your family?

EMI has staff needs across our offices including our Uganda office in Kampala. EMI is trusting God to raise up design and construction professionals to be a part of this great work and this exploratory trip is a great introduction. We will spend time visiting locations where EMI has been involved including past and current projects in Uganda. This will allow time for observing local construction methods and management practices. We will also spend time interacting with EMI-Uganda’s staff (local and international) and experience everyday life in East Africa. If you are interested in exploring staff opportunities with EMI and want to come check out Uganda, we invite you to be a part of this trip.

Interested volunteers are welcome from all backgrounds and disciplines within the design and construction industry. This trip is exploratory- no long term commitment is required to participate, simply a willingness to see where God may be leading you. Spouses are welcome and encouraged to participate as well.
