It explores the utilization of various professional methods to promote self-sufficiency, social integration, social change, human rights and social justice in a developing country. The focus is to learn how social work practice skills (micro and macro) can be indigenized in a developing country. The participants will take a 3 week study in the country in order to study social problems and learn about the cultural context of delivery of human services in a developing country.

The activities include orientation meetings before the trip, visits to health and social welfare agencies in urban and rural areas of Uganda, attendance at social work classes and seminars at Makerere University and the development of peer partnerships with various human service providers.
