After over 13 years of operations Friends of Ruwenzori hired their first paid staff person in October of 2017.  The work could not be done without a volunteer advisory committee that meets monthly.  On occasion, members of the committee along with interested others travel to Uganda at their own expense to volunteer and visit KIDA.
