Help us to change lives in Africa
We are a small charity raising money in the UK to help some of the poorest people in Uganda to rise out of poverty.
We work in Kashare, South West Uganda, where nearly 20 per cent of the people live below the extreme poverty level. Of the population of 23,000, nearly 900 children are orphaned or abandoned, and a third of the women cannot read or write.
Since we began 13 years ago we have helped 150 vulnerable children through educational support, and enabled 750 women to learn to read and write. We have arranged micro loans for 1,300 very poor women, and taught better agricultural methods to 150 farmers.
We are keen to expand all these projects.
