October 2017 - thank you to the Fixed Income team at Aberdeen Standard for their generous donation of proceeds from the team drinks trolley.

June 2017 -  feeling generous today? We’re on JustTextGiving, so why not text RTUG12 plus the amount that you would like to donate to 70070? There are no charges for the text and your donation is all passed directly to the Rwenzori Trust. It only costs around £6 per month to sponsor a child.

May 2017 - a reading room is being constructed in Ruboni village using the “community pot” budget. Completion is expected in summer 2018.

January 2017 - we are now in our tenth year of the child sponsorship programme and we currently sponsor 43 children in secondary schools and further education in Uganda. In fact, the current number of children is 40 because the local admissions committee has decided (exceptionally) to award a bursary equivalent to funds for 4 children to one young person to help with their fees for attending Kyambogo University.

 

Welcome to the Rwenzori Trust!

The Rwenzori Trust is a UK-registered charity working with communities in the Rwenzori mountains area of Uganda. More information about the  charity’s aims and background can be found by clicking here.

 

The Rwenzori Mountains, also known as the Mountains of the Moon, are located in Western Uganda, bordering the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the West. The Bakonjo people live in and around the southern foothills of the Rwenzoris. Outside the boundary of the Rwenzori Mountains National Park, the Bakonjo cultivate their crops, including bananas, cassava and beans, on the steep, fertile and verdant slopes. More information about the Rwenzori Mountains can be found by clicking here.
