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. For example the post office and our local cafe in our village of Shalford both sell our coffee to help us raise funds. There are so many more we could mention but here are some of our wonderful friends and supporters.
The Cross Sector Leadership Exchange
We are very excited to be supported by The Cross Sector Leadership Exchange (CSLE), who are sponsoring a child through school and committed to supporting our work in Uganda. CSLE is a not for profit community interest company that brings together leaders from different sectors to challenge and develop their leadership.
They believe excellent leaders working together across the sectors are more effective in delivering higher quality services to the public - including running leadership programmes in Uganda.
Managing Director Sue Hopgood said "We have been following the work you are doing at Seeds for Development in Uganda and continue to be inspired by everything you have achieved. We are delighted to be supporting the great work you are doing in Uganda and look forward to hearing about the child we are sponsoring".

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.
When we first visited Uganda in 2008, Tamsy Baker at The Guildford-Mukono Link advised us to talk to one person, Timothy who has become our advisor and friend. We now have a close friendship with the link and 6 children from the villages of northern Uganda attending excellent Link schools in Mukono. This is possible through the generosity of UK based sponsors. If you would like to know more about sponsoring a child, please click on the button that says click!
