  • Education

    To ensure that children in the local community have an education and are able to fullfil their hopes and dreams. We support The Early Learning School in Entebbe, Uganda. The school currently educates 250 children aged between 3-13 years.

  • Funding teachers

    We value teachers. Through funding their monthly salaries the children at The Early Learning School are able to attend school without paying fees. The school serves the local community of single mothers who without our support their children would not be able to attend school.

  • Food

    We provide food for the school and community families. Food prices in Uganda have increased three times since 2021. This makes it hard for families to provide nutritious meals. We buy rice and beans from the local market and matoke and maize is grown on a farm near Kampala which is linked to the school.

Tree planting in Uganda

We plant Matoke (planain) plants in Uganda to provide food for the local community as well as off setting our emissions.

As well as Makoke plants we also plant orange, mango and avacardo trees.

Providing food to the local community is an important part of our project and ensure that the children come to school with a full tummy.
