Uganda Kumi

Making room for Kumi’s orphans

Kumi in Eastern Uganda will give you a taste of the ‘real Africa’. The colours are bright, the welcomes are big, the wildlife is jaw-dropping and the scenery is breath-taking. However, underneath that traditional view, the need is significant.

 

Please note that the trip dates may vary a day either way due to flight availability.

The Projects

Following the HIV/AIDs pandemic, Kumi has inherited a generation of orphans. Almost half of Kumi is under 15 and are all desperate for education. Schools here are bursting at the seams and are in need of desperate refurbishment.

Mornings: You will either be building new school facilities or renovating existing ones. We have helped to build 9 new classrooms at various schools in Kumi's vulnerable communities, as well as refurbish others. We have also built 2 latrine blocks, 4 teacher's homes, refurbished dormitories and re-roofed traditional homes in remote villages as well as providing a fence for the COHAD (children's home) site with other repair works. in 2018/19 you will be helping to build classrooms at Kumi Bazaar School - see team pages for more info. 

Afternoon: Support local community projects – including the experience of building a traditional straw house with a family.

Rest and Relaxation

As well as visiting a coffee plantation, you will enjoy a safari and witness the spectacular Sipi Falls. Our words cannot describe the magnificent view over this beautiful land.
