A team from Girlguiding Warwickshire are going out to Uganda in August 2019 to support the Kabubbu Development Project.
The Kabubbu Development Project (KDP) is Quicken Trust’s partner on the ground in Uganda. Together they are working to transform the lives of hundreds of villagers in Kabubbu blighted by poverty and disease.
The KDP was set up as the Quicken Trust began its work in Kabubbu in 2000.
The KDP currently provides unskilled work for local people. Professional staff must be recruited from further afield – usually Kampala -- because most adults in the village have been denied the education necessary for such roles.
But an ambition of the KDP is to see that change. It expects some of the young people educated in Kabubbu over the past decade to return to pass on their skills to a new generation of youngsters. The process is already under way with some school leavers now working for the project.
In its first decade in Kabubbu, Quicken Trust has helped tackle the destitution, disease and despair endured by villagers who once described themselves as “the Forgotten People”
Help us to help them!
