The Redemption Song Foundation (RSF) is seeking volunteers to work remotely from the U.S. or anywhere on an ongoing basis, starting as soon as possible. Join a team working on a very exciting project to align environmental sustainability with community livelihoods. We are a small but growing nonprofit with a big vision and a big heart.
RSF is a (US) 501c3 nonprofit organization with our "base" a few km outside of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, home to critically endangered mountain gorillas, as well as a small community of indigenous Batwa "pygmies." The Batwa are struggling to survive and thrive since the park’s creation. Here’s an article I wrote about the situation before I moved here: http://www.takepart.com/feature/2014/11/25/conservation-refugees-of-uganda-batwa-mountain-gorillas.
RSF works with the Batwa, who live in extreme poverty, as well as other marginalized communities. We work holistically to improve quality of life, health, and the environment -- in the vein of the late Nobel Laureate Elinor Ostrom’s "Design principles." Any given day, we may be making the steep trek to Karehe village to inventory houses and do community education, take HIV+ women to the hospital to ensure they receive their medicine, supervising latrine digging or mud-house-building, or (this is something we will be doing in the near future) tree planting for carbon sequestration projects RSF wants to get started, putting together reusable menstrual pad kits, or working with Batwa children on our educational "soup kitchen" day.
We are seeking people to work from home via computer on a variety of projects and tasks, depending on your skills and time. Among other things, we’re looking for someone to do any or several of the below:
- Inventory baskets and jewelry (part of an income-generating Artisan Co-op)
- Design an Etsy store or other outlet to sell these crafts
- Handle social media
- Communicate with donors and potential donors
- Research and write grants
- Various administrative tasks
Opportunities are flexible and we are open to many skills.
