So much has happened over the last 21 years and we’re still going strong; we have been privileged to meet, support and work alongside many people, who have found themselves in desperate circumstances.
Several of our projects are based around children and education.
At Komamboga Children’s Home, a home for abandoned and orphaned children in Uganda, we have tried to create a thriving family atmosphere in which children can feel safe and part of the family. The children attend local schools and are supported through vocational training or University if appropriate. Although they eventually leave to make a life for themselves, they are encouraged to always feel part of the family.
Our scholarship scheme at St Paul’s School aims to provide children in poverty with a broad education. This provides a good foundation, sees children fulfil their potential and acts as a springboard into further education and working life.
In Ethiopia, we work with communities on projects including clean water, education and seed for planting. We aim to stand alongside communities, sharing in their ideas and vision for the future, providing support and advice where necessary and ensuring that the process of development and change belongs to the people.
In Uganda, we work with Five Talents by providing marginalised people with the tools they need to break the poverty cycle that prevents them from flourishing. This comes in the form of training and support for local self-help groups and community led savings groups.
