Edirisa UK Charitable Trust
Who we are
A huge THANK YOU for visiting our page!!
Edirisa UK supports a small community in South Western Uganda.
We are working to improve the lives of the local people, focusing on education, health and sanitation, the provision of clean water and sustainable enterprise.
Over the last 5 years we have developed our craft section introducing new products, improving quality, running sewing workshops and opening shops. Profits are now supporting our Special Needs Centre and other projects as well as continuing to provide training and equipment for the craft groups we work with.
We began by funding a primary school on the shores of Lake Bunyonyi and have extended our activities to include building and running 4 nursery schools; renovating 5 primary schools;establishing a Special Needs Education Centre where 50 children are resident; have installed over 100 water harvesting tanks in the community and have built a clinic on Bwama Island at Lake Bunyonyi.
We support sustainable projects for local communities, craft making, bee-keeping, vegetable gardens and orchards as we believe in a “hand up” not a “hand out”.
