The CFYE fund aims to create, match and improve jobs for 200,000 young people in the Middle East, North Africa, Sahel, West Africa and the Horn of Africa, In Uganda, the first 7 companies have recently received a CFYE grant for their initiative (often in partnership with an NGO) to create jobs for young people. VSO’s role is to support these initiatives in Uganda and other countries.

About the role

As a remote business coach you will support and advise the company once every 2 or 4 weeks for a few hours. While waiting for more details on the support requested, we started to build a pool of volunteer business advisors with experience in:

  • Coaching business owners/managers and/or experience in managing a growing business
  • Private sector affinity
  • Uganda (preferred) or a comparable country

(A small disclaimer: The final requirements may differ from what we are sharing with you now and therefore your profile may not be suitable.)

VSO and remote volunteering

Some steps are adapted for remote volunteers. If you have any practical questions on this, please contact Maria Breure of Volunteer Support,, +31(0)6 1355 0118.
