Exciting opportunity to join our UK board

We are recruiting for new Volunteer Trustee/s at S.A.L.V.E. International for 8-12 hours per month (which can be evenings and weekends) based in the UK.

We are interested in receiving applications from people who have commitment and skills/experience/ knowledge that will help us to achieve our mission of creating “No Street Called Home” for children in Uganda.

This could include (but is not limited to) some of the following skills we have noticed are currently missing from our board in our latest skills audit:

  • Health and Safety
  • Safeguarding
  • HR
  • Legal

S.A.L.V.E. International is a small International Development partnership charity registered in the UK and Uganda. Our ethos is “Support And Love Via Education”.

At S.A.L.V.E. we believe:

  • No young person should have to live or work on the streets
  • Young people who have lived and worked on the streets deserve the chance to fulfil their potential
  • Young people on the streets should have trustworthy, supportive adults around them

With the generous help of our supporters, S.A.L.V.E. works with children on the streets of Jinja, Uganda, and their families, so they have the opportunity to leave their difficult pasts behind them and move forward, towards a brighter future.

We are looking to recruit new trustees who believe in our vision and want to work together with us to change children’s lives.

You will join our Board of Trustees in the UK and work alongside our CEO, staff teams and Ugandan
board, to help S.A.L.V.E. International to thrive and increase our impact.

Additional information:

“It is no exaggeration to say that being a Trustee has changed my life, giving me a sense of purpose that simply can’t be matched. Knowing that the work we do here in the UK makes such a difference to children living on the streets in Uganda is a feeling like no other, and I know that whatever I do in my life to come, it will be the work I’ve done with S.A.L.V.E. that I will always be most proud of.” Helen Huthwaite
