What We Do
More than 1 in 5 rural Ugandans are living below the poverty line today. This is unacceptable. But we can help. It is estimated that growth in agriculture is at least twice as effective in reducing poverty as growth in other sectors. Figures also show that 30 per cent of all food produced in Uganda is lost due to poor post-harvest handing and inadequate storage. Our mission is to help farmers to grow more and waste less food.
With your support, we can help groups of families where rural poverty is at its worst. We can help them grow and store more food. This way we can transform the lives of thousands of families where children are getting food, medicine and an education. Where appropriate your donation can be reinvested to lift yet more rural families out of poverty.
We have a proud history of supporting education and health professionals and in particular helping disabled children to access essential health-care and education. We have transformed hundreds of lives. Long term we think we can do even more by supporting rural Ugandans build their economy and therefore be able to afford education and health-care when they need it.
We know that the best way to bring about permanent change is to work with local experts. That’s why we work with partner organisations in Uganda who share our passion for change. Our partners are community based organisations who use their local knowledge to organise, train and support groups of local people.
The Trustees try to visit all our projects regularly to ensure that your money goes where it is meant to go, right there on the ground to make the biggest community impact. The Trustees travel to Uganda at their own expense.
