Recruiting Organization: Thriving Youth Farmers Uganda

Started in 2021, Thriving Youth Farmers Uganda (TYoFU) supports food security, youth empowerment, and the local economy of Masulita Town Council, Uganda and beyond. On rich farmland, TYoFU employs Ugandan youth to cultivate healthy food for their community, with a dream of becoming a multi-discipline vocational training and mentorship center for youth from all regions of Uganda. TYoFU's vision: a world in which all youth can become employed, empowered, community leaders and all people have regular access to healthy, whole food. TYoFU is a social enterprise AND an NGO. This video tells the story of Thriving Youth Farmers Uganda's vision and inspiring efforts to date.


Who we are looking for:

We are looking for a volunteer that can commit a few hours a week to liaising between TYoFU staff and remote (U.S.-based) volunteers. TYoFU's volunteers include a communications volunteer, a video-editing volunteer, a donor relations volunteer, and hopefully soon, a grant-writing volunteer. Because the 3 staff at TYoFU (also currently volunteers) have so much on their plate, and contend with issues like power shortages and limited laptop technology, they are in need of someone who can coordinate the valued efforts of their volunteers.


3-4 hours a week (or more if you prefer), you would:

  • manage a high level calendar of volunteer activities (grant proposal due dates, monthly e-newsletter dates, etc.)
  • act as a point person for the distribution of information from TYoFU staff to relevant volunteers
  • assist volunteers with getting needed information from TYoFU staff (budgets, narrative information, etc.)
  • maintain informational documents in the Google Suite
  • notice process improvements that can be made, and communicate ideas for process improvements and role clarity with TYoFU staff, and then implement the decisions that make sense
  • you may also choose to be involved with the partnership with Georgetown Global Consulting, helping that team to assist with certain deliverables


If you love the idea of grassroots food security AND/OR are passionate about youth empowerment/employability, get excited by the idea of helping a newer organization build a solid foundation, and have 3-4 hours a week (or more) to give - this position might be for you!


Your interest is so heartening! It is because of people like you that solidarity and food justice is possible.


TYoFU is a community-led project, founded by Martin Tomusange, and supported by the Masulita community and local governance. Devon Little is TYoFU's American friend who has helped TYoFU take its first steps. More information about TYoFU at the beta website here. Thank you for your interest in broadening the support for TYoFU, so Martin's dream can keep emerging!
