Female Engineer Training: Project Hello World Fellowship – Imagine Her

Training Title:   Project Hello World Fellowship (Female Engineers)   

Organisation: Imagine Her

Duty Station:  Kampala, Uganda


About Imagine Her:

We are a non-proft working to accessibly provide young vulnerable women and youth with a robust innovation skillset and essential resources to create sustainable social ventures and social impact in Uganda. We do this by providing tools and collaborating with communities as key advocates to prepare pathways for their socio-economic independence.


About the Project:

As part of our work, we are implementing a Project dubbed Hello World which we seek to fill some vacant positions. Project Hello World provides educational resources and Internet connectivity to isolated and vulnerable communities. We do this by building solar-powered, outdoor Internet kiosks— so that underprivileged children and adults can educate themselves, communicate with others, and have a voice in the global community. To achieve this, we mobilize communities to build Hello Hubs which are solar-powered outdoor Internet kiosks, and state-of-the-art technology including high-quality solar panels, satellite connectivity, rugged, waterproof touch-screen screens, camera, and audio equipment. Hello Hubs are designed to withstand extreme outdoor weather and are energy-autonomous, which means that they can bring connectivity and education to even the most isolated communities.


Fellowship Overview

We are delighted to launch the annual Project Hello World Fellowship Program which is designed to train Female Engineers to solve community challenges in Uganda. There is no other comparable program in the world. Using a multidisciplinary approach the fellowship aims to develop core skills, community skills, and technical competence. Our approach is focused on practical feld training delivered by professionals, research, innovation, and cutting-edge technology.


Job Summary:  Hello World Fellows will be integrated into the local team in Kampala for 6+ months during which time they will become familiar with the components of the Hello Hub design, supervised by the onsite engineers. Their time will be divided between learning new skills, community work with the teams on Hub builds, and design sprints for product development. In this way, their training will cover both practical engineering skills and innovation.

Qualifications, Skills and Experience:

  • The program is full-time and requires a minimum commitment of 6 months and a willingness to travel widely within Uganda.
  • We are looking for university graduates in the following Engineering felds; Computing, Mechanical, Electrical, and Civil Engineering.
  • Ability to work collaboratively in a team environment
