How we do it


We work with the local communities for the uplifting of a girl child, women and to help them improve their standards of living, access safe water, sanitation and basic health facilities. We use a range of experts and make sure the right skills exist in the community so they can keep them working along into the future. By working with the local communities we’re able to invest in the future of local communities so that they can continue the excellent work. The incredible generosity and commitment of our supporters and donors is behind everything we are doing.

We are currently operating in the districts of Rukungiri and Mitooma South Western Uganda, Sub counties of Ruhinda, Buhunga, Bugangari, Nyakagyeme, Rukungiri municipality, Kabira and Rurehe. Plans are under way to expand the scope of operation to Sheema, Kanungu, Greater Bushenyi and Kabale Districts.
