Gratitude and thanks
We are so grateful for the support, generosity and kindness of hundreds, if not thousands of people who have given us their money to work on their behalf in Uganda. We take that responsibility very seriously and make sure that 100% of your donations go to the projects in Uganda. As well as individuals, we are so fortunate to be supported by different organisations in different ways.
There are so many more we could mention but here are some of our wonderful friends and supporters.
RGS Prep and Stevensons
A huge thank you to the children, parents and staff at RGS Prep who have donated a huge amount of uniform and kit to the children and communities in the villages we support. When Lanesborough School merged with RGS Prep they faced the conundrum of what to do with the old and unused uniforms.
Their uniform outfitters Stevensons sold the remaining stock to the school at a very discounted price and the funds were raised by donations and generosity of RGS International, who also paid to transport the uniforms to Uganda.

Nicolas Longley and L B Longley Investments
We are hugely grateful to Nicolas Longley and LB Longley Investments Ltd for their huge support to our projects. Their donations help run the schools and are now making the Peace and Learning Centre in Parabongo become a reality.
Working together for a better future
Like us, Forgotten Peoples Projects (FPP) is a tiny UK charity (1143184) supporting communities near Kitgum in northern Uganda. They believe that Africa will be transformed by Africans and we are proud to work with them in making that happen.
We support FPP with seeds for the farmers, paying teachers salaries and inviting their farmers to attend our workshops. The teachers we pay act as co-ordinators for our farming projects.
Redber Coffee are a small Guildford based coffee roastery, run by Graham and Petra. We met Graham and Petra when we started our coffee project in 2011.
Since then they have supported us in many ways and really made a difference to our fund-raising through selling Happy Coffee Beans. We are so grateful for their support, friendship and advice for all things coffee. If you would like to know more about buying our coffee please contact us.
Drop in the bucket are our great friends in Uganda. We are full of admiration for the work they do across northern Uganda and South Sudan. When we have tricky situations or questions about what to do next and how to do it, we turn to them. Their work in water, sanitation and hygiene - toilets! - is inspirational.
