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.
