If you are looking to make a difference in Africa, this is a great opportunity for you. We are looking for a passionate volunteer to engage with the youth in Uganda in leadership development activities. We believe that with good leadership, the young generation can find sustainable solutions to the pressing challenges of their communities. For this to happen, they need to be empowered and equipped with the skills and tools they need to be effective leaders and change-makers.

URF's mission is to empower AIDS orphans, underprivileged youth, and women to fight poverty in rural communities, through educational, healthcare, and sustainable development opportunities.

Programs: orphanage, kindergarten and elementary school, secondary school, youth leadership camps, medical outreach, child-headed family outreach, women empowerment, village banking, food security, etc.
