Meet the Tamarind Team 2023

Updated: Feb 20

6 permanent staff, many casuals and contractors, and 2 directors is what takes to keep Tamarind going. All staff are valued and play a vital part in the daily running’s of the projects and community life. We would love your support financially and through prayer for these staff. For the month of September and October our goal is to establish a funding base for these workers. 12 monthly supporters paying $50 a month will support staff wages.





 

Meet Robinson

"The Farm" projects manager works full time!



He has 4 children and has been working with us for a little over 10 years. He is our longest standing staff member at Tamarind. When he first started with Tamarind he was young and had no goals in life. We found him making bad choices that were destructive to him and his family.


Since being with Tamarind he has built a home in Pagak “The Farm” and is growing crops in his home village. He now has his own family and has short- and long-term goals that he wants to reach. He started professional boxing at Gulu Boxing Club and is winning many tournaments locally and regionally. We appreciate him and Tamarind thanks Robinson for all his hard work. When we support one, they support their family.


 

Meet Mary

A project worker, she works part time, 3 days a week.



She has 2 children and has been working with us for just under 1 year. Mary is very humble and polite and works hard. She is willing to learn new skills and “keeps time” as they say here in Uganda. She has a strong faith in Jesus and has grown a lot in her time with Tamarind. We appreciate her and Tamarind thanks Mary for all her hard work. When we support one, they support their family.

 

Meet Bosco

Full time community development and project worker.



He has 6 children and has been working with us for a little over 1 year. He is a quiet achiever and follows leadership well. He works well with the community and is great at defusing a hostile situation within the community. He works hard and always completes tasks. We appreciate him and Tamarind thanks Bosco for all his hard work. When we support one, they support their family.

 

Meet Scovia

She has 3 children and has been working with us for almost 1 year. Scovia is a faithful genuine lady that works diligently. She is honest and dependable. Her work in The Tribe is motivating and always a joy to be around. She conquers her challenges and rises above her storms personally and provides a stability in the workshop. We appreciate her and Tamarind thanks Scovia for all her hard work. When we support one, they support their family.

Meet Justine

“The Tribe” project manager works full time.



She has 4 children and has been working with us for about 7 years. We have had the joy of seeing her children grow up and they are like family to us, joining in on birthday, Easter and Christmas celebrations. Jastine is faithful, committed and hard working. She is very strong and her attention to detail and doing an excellent job makes her a massive asset to Tamarind. Personally she is like family and will always go the extra mile to do whatever she can for Tamarind and our family. She has a deep relationship with Jesus and has grown a lot in her faith over the years. We appreciate her and Tamarind thanks for all her hard work. When we support one, they support their family.
