We are small but mighty
Our small size is our greatest strength.
We have the flexibility and space to try new things and adapt easily and quickly to the changing priorities of our local partners.
Our ethos of value for money helps us to reach many thousands of people every year, with no compromise on standards on a tight budget.
We have low running costs in the UK, allowing us to put more money where the need is greatest.
Our projects work
Nalitongo was the first village that we ever helped back in 2004, and we have continued to visit ever since. For the 127 people who live there, life changed with access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene.
In 2017 the villagers told us that because of safe water, they were able to set up eight gardens where they grow vegetables and bananas. Now, nobody goes hungry and there is extra to sell. They’ve pooled their resources, built a school and got the government to fund a teacher, who takes two classes daily.
