"This is the finest example of rural development I have ever seen" (Edward Ssekandi, Vice-President of Uganda) and "The Rolls Royce of all the developments I have seen or been involved with" (Bill Farmer, International Development Consultant with 40 years' experience).

In 2000 Quicken Trust started working with the community of 2,500 in Kabubbu, a rural village 12 miles north of Kampala, Uganda's capital. 20% were orphans from HIV/AIDs and malaria. A place of death, destitution and disease with no resources except a dirty stream for drinking water. They called themselves The Forgotten People. Since 2000 QT has worked with this community providing and supporting a primary school (500 pupils); secondary school (450 pupils); university & vocational training; health & maternity care (18,000 patients/annum); foster home for abused children; AIDs support centre (300 patients/month); adult literacy centre & library; welfare programme; elderly support; intensive organic farming; electricity supply; resort & conference centre; community church; work initiatives. QT runs a detailed volunteer programme including 120 students annually. A life-changing experience for them.

"One of the best examples we have in Uganda of a partnership between a community in the UK and a community in Uganda. A really good example of best practice." Hugh Moffatt, Director, the British Council, Uganda.

100% of donations are used in full at the point of need in Kabubbu as we partner with Kabubbu Kids, their guardians and the community. We work to enable them to free themselves from the injustice of poverty imposed by others and to achieve self-sustainability.

"Throughout my travels in Uganda I have never seen another project like the one in Kabubbu that caters for the whole person across all age groups including health, education, spiritual and physical welfare, social concern and community housing. It is unique." Loy Tumuisiime, Secretary, Readers' Association of Uganda.
