Projects by team for 2016:

Team 3, 4 and 5: Kitazigurukwa School, partners: The Diocese of North Kigezi

kitazigurukwa_special_needs_unitBeing born with a disability in Uganda means life as a second class citizen. Children are often shunned by their families and don’t get a proper education. However, the Church in the Rukungiri region has a totally different message; “Every child is a blessing from God.”

Help us to continue building safe, secure classrooms and dormitories at Kitazigurukwa School for the region’s children with disabilities and show these kids what they are really worth! Find out more by clicking the ‘Booking and Dates’ tab.


Team 6: Partnering with the Chilli Children Trust and the Mother’s Union

Working alongside the wonderful Evas and Chilli Children Project, who identify and help orphans and children with life-limiting disabilities, this trip suits those looking to build relationships rather than buildings. We’d also like volunteers for this trip who would be willing to provide some training – this could be dressmaking, knitting, crochet or crafts. In return, the girls will teach you some traditional African crafts such as bead-making and basket  weaving.  Find out more.

Team 7 – Celebrating Kitazigurukwa SchoolDSC_0017_edited-1

It is with some sadness, but also with great thankfulness that this team in November will be the last to work at Kitazigurukwa’ school in Rukungiri. Come and join this team and see the final stages of this long-term project completed and celebrated!
