UG Volunteer Staff Members

Community Field Officers (CFO) are elected by their local village and are responsible for the ongoing support and management of  Rooted Wisdom’s participants within their local area. Their activities include conducting regular field visits to member homes, collecting data, supporting Rooted Wisdom staff in organizing and mobilizing workshops, and facilitating the formation of groups into the broader community. CFOs work with Rooted Wisdom on a part-time contractual basis – approximately 12 hours per month – and are successful farmers by trade.
