I am absolutely honoured to be an ambassador for The Zuri Project Uganda and recently I jumped out of a plane to help to raise funds for the charity to build a secondary school in Kihembe. I am over the moon and delighted to announce the first secondary school in Kihembe opened its doors last week to 46 eager students and the Zuri Project and all our team couldn’t be prouder!
The Zuri Project Uganda is a UK registered charity that supports the design, implementation and monitoring of a variety of development projects, that support the improvement of community wellbeing and the alleviation of multi-dimensional poverty, in rural communities across South western Uganda.
Through a basic model of co-production, we engage with local people, through local organisations, to learn about what development projects they would like to design. We then empower local people to get involved in every stage of the project cycle by providing financial support and resources, before ensuring that the projects enrich the lives of the local community by monitoring and evaluating their sustainability.
