Here's an overview of some of our key projects:
Some of the most important work that needs to be done in rural Uganda is setting up basic educational facilities and infrastructure. Supporting communities through building schools lays a foundation that we hope allows these communities to prosper self-sufficiently . We believe that education is the cornerstone to any society and that children need a quality education to realise their enormous potential.
Microfinance is a type of banking service that is provided to unemployed or low-income individuals, or groups who otherwise have no other access to financial services. The goal of Microfinance is to grant access to financial capital that would otherwise be unattainable in these communities, to allow local women to either start new businesses or grow existing ones. At TUSP, the aim is ease the financial pressures on local families that will in turn allow an emphasis to be placed on their children’s education.
Our time spent on the ground in these communities has allowed us to identify other social and health-related issues that we are trying to help.
This has included:
Physiotherapy screening for the community and regular physiotherapy clinics to support physical disabilities, in partnership with Butiru Cheshire Home.
Support for people with albinism, including regular screening and treatment, as well as assisting with the creation of a locally run organisation called ‘Bright Hope’, ; a new organisation working to promote and protect the rights of PWA in Eastern regions of Uganda through practical support programs and awareness raising.
Child Safeguarding workshops for parents and teachers, working to eradicate corporal punishment, promote alternative discipline and provide a safe, supportive learning environment for our learners.
