“Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world”

 Nelson Mandela

The Uphill Trust supports grassroots education in rural western Uganda

Access to education is not a given in Uganda. There are schools, but if you can’t pay you can’t go; and often education is not seen as a priority for girls.

We are helping the people in one community solve this problem by supporting them as they build a primary school with kindergarten for their children.

Our work empowers children through education – an important first step in breaking the cycle of poverty.

Much thanks to our much loved Uphill Trust for all the wonderful funding and to all our friends, men and women, for your kind hearts. Your contributions have made an extraordinary difference and impact in our community. God bless you so much.

Elius Muhimbise, director

“It is very rewarding to donate to an organisation where you can see the difference your money is making.”
