Macfo Uganda Urgently Needs Volunteers


MACFO Uganda is urgently looking for volunteers to help them fulfil their duties towards the communities in and around Kampala.

MACFO (MAKE CHILDREN FOUNDATION) is a non profit, non-religious, non-Government Organization (NGO) with the general objective of improving the lives of communities through training, and provision of essential services, the necessary care and support for orphans and vulnerable children

MACFO Uganda’s vision is “A Healthy and promising life for all children”.

Their Mission is to empower orphans and other vulnerable children (OVC’s) and most at risk population (MARP’s) with healthy positive living through increased access to HIV/AIDS-related information, care and support at all levels.

We are in the process of welcoming new board members to our team as we work to improve the governance of our organization and  the partnership of many great minds working towards a worthy cause.

Personally I’ve been involved with MACFO for just under a year now, and have been impressed by their CEO, Timothy Matovu’s dedication to his work.

He supports the children during the school year by supplying necessary educational supplies, clothing and food. Furthermore he regularly runs clinics that ensure the children receives their inoculations against dreaded disease.

Just recently I’ve assisted him in launching a Christmas project called ‘Hope in a Box’. We aim to pack giftboxes for at least 83 children and do a fun handover during a pre-Christmas celebration on 17 December.

Needless to say, doing all this work is quite daunting for just one person and, despite the volunteers he currently has, he is always in need of more helping hands. The need in Uganda is tremendous and reaching out to all the different areas has become difficult for the few assistants he employs.
