HUGS started raising money for schools and education in Uganda and Rwanda back in 1995. Since then 6 schools been built, two primary, two secondary, one for girls and one for children with special needs.

Many hundreds of children have benefited and there are currently nearly 1700 children at the schools.

The big projects in 2020 are to build a new school for children with disabilities in Jinja and help with girls safety at Little Shepherd School, Rutunguru. We are also raising funds to buy science equipment for our sponsored Girls Secondary school in Lira.

Can you help?

No donor money is spent on overheads, administration or travel so all your donations will go to children and the schools.

Child or student sponsorship may appeal to you. Please contact us and we can arrange this. email on
