Youth Focus Africa Foundation (YOFAFO) is a Uganda-based non-profit organization that empowers women and children through education, health and microfinance programs. Founded in 2005, YOFAFO works in partnership with three communities in Uganda to build strong foundations of trust, community involvement and accountability. The Central Coast plays a part in the work of this organization through a San Luis Obispo team that recruits volunteers and sponsors.
YOFAFO takes volunteers to Uganda to assist with projects such as classroom construction, building maintenance, extracurricular activities, teaching classes and community health outreach. A volunteer trip is being planned for summer 2017.
YOFAFO sponsorships provide educational opportunities for children in Uganda. A sponsor’s annual contribution provides a student’s education fees and supplies, uniforms, meals, career guidance, and access to health services.
YOFAFO founder Valence Lutaisire will be in San Luis Obispo on September 25 – October 5. A reception will be held where you can meet him and learn more about YOFAFO. For more information or to schedule a meeting with Valence, please contact [email protected] or visit yofafo.org.
