We rely on donations to fund our charity

Any money you give makes a difference. The trustees personally fund the UK running costs of the charity. The Rwenzori Trust is a UK charity, registered with the Charities Commission (no 1011735)

We partner with the Ruboni Community Conservation and Development Programme (“RCCDP”) to deliver our projects in Ruboni village. For the child sponsorship programme, school fees are paid by RCCDP directly to the relevant schools so that money does not disappear. Our only Ugandan overheads are the payment of 50,000 Ugandan shillings (approximately £10) each month to a local teacher who organises the payments to the schools, coordinates the decision making of who is accepted onto the programme, and sends us a report each term tracking fees and progress.
