GET INVOLVED

We work with indigenous Batwa "pygmies" just outside of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, which until 1991 was their forest homeland. Now they live in settlements at the edge of the park. For the past 3 years, we have worked mainly within Kalehe Village, creating a more sustainable community, with clean water, improved livelihoods through our artisan coop, and education for children. 

RSF is seeking a full-time volunteer in Uganda to help with our school, or community development projects.

 

We also have many volunteer opportunities and needs, and list them at Volunteer Match. We have projects that can be done from anywhere in the world. We're specifically looking for assistance with accounting, grant writing, social media management, blog and newsletter writing and design, and nonprofit development!

GIVING FOODS-DAY!

NEWS FLASH: 2021 annual #GivingTuesday campaign launched! 

"Give a (wo)man a tomato, she eats for a day; Teach a woman to plant tomatoes, she eats for a lifetime." 🍅

 

We are teaching sustainable, organic agriculture business projects to the indigenous Batwa of Kalehe Village in Uganda — one of the poorest, most marginalized tribes in the world.
🍅 🌳🌽 🥭

 

When the COVID pandemic started, we started giving food relief but more importantly, taught the indigenous Kalehe Village Batwa to do sustainable, organic tropical agriculture — from shade-grown coffee arabica to goats, rabbits, vegetables, fruit trees, and more —and we aim to vastly expand this project with your help.

 

We mean BUSINESS. We aim to teach the families how to grow enough to sell, so they can support themselves instead of working for peanuts in their other small gigs. We aim to sell organic produce to tourist lodges and local people, supporting the environment while improving local health, and making RSF and the Batwa financially sustainable at the local level. Win-win-win!

 

We've dubbed Giving Tuesday "Giving FoodsDay" at Redemption Song Foundation (RSF) — November 30th, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, a day to GIVE BACK! On Giving Tuesday itself, we will give packets of food, seeds, and ag supplies for each family! $100 for each family but give any amount, from $1 to $1,000 and beyond! $5 plants a tree if you earmark your donation for it!

Donate through our website's donation page, our GoFundMe Campaign page, or mail a check to RSF, PO Box 876, Frisco, TX 75034. 

Your money goes a long way in Uganda!

 

To full tummies and happy hearts ❤️
