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. Progress is slow with only foundations and walls built so far, but it
is expected to be completed 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.
Making a donation
To support a child, we’d ask you to donate £6 per month. It costs approximately £75
per year in school fees for one child (although inflation and exchange rates mean
we can’t be precise about this) .
To make a donation online, either for a one-off amount or for a monthly standing
order, please visit our webpage at www.justgiving.com. If you’d rather make a donation
by cheque, please make the cheque payable to the “Rwenzori Trust”, write your name
