Two Trustees needed to transform lives

Helping orphans

Our Trustees create life-long opportunities for thousands of orphans

Financial and accounting expert?  OR

Experienced in African agriculture?

As we sadly farewell two long-standing Trustee / Directors, we’re seeking two experts with experience and passion for transforming lives in Africa.

The great bulk of our funding goes to our Ugandan projects, so our UK office has only two staff members. Our Trustees / Directors therefore play a key, hands-on role. You will need to be willing to commit to Board meetings and meetings with the staff during working-hours, and to travelling to Uganda every few years for 1-2 weeks (at a time that suits you).

Treasurer: You’ll have expertise in finance and accounting matters, knowledge of the Sage accounting system, and the experience of business management in an African context needed to take oversight of the expenditure by our Ugandan partner organisations.

Agricultural expert: You’ll have the understanding of agricultural and sustainable development issues in Africa be able to help develop project plans and prepare winning fundraising proposals, and to provide oversight and input to the effective implementation of agri-business projects by our African partners.

We are recruiting for the above two roles. But if you’d like to help us but either don’t bring these specific skills or are unable to commit to the time required, please do get in touch to discuss other opportunities.

See our Jobs & volunteer roles page for details of roles and application process.
