About us

The Uphill Trust supports grass roots education in rural western Uganda: Uphill Junior School, a privately-owned primary school with kindergarten, was founded by a Ugandan teacher in February 2011 and provides educational opportunities for girls, orphans and children from poor rural families.

We are helping the school to build well equipped school buildings, maintain a motivated and well-qualified teaching staff, provide clean water and good sanitation, and support the education of girls and orphans.

When funding is available we also support projects that benefit the wider community, such as provision of mosquito nets, solar lanterns and reading glasses for the community elders.

The Uphill Trust is a zero-overheads charity - 100% of the money you donate is used to support Uphill Junior School.

Education is power!

Uphill Porridge Club

Children at Uphill Junior School are often hungry. Crop yields on their small shambas (subsistence farms) are being affected by climate change, and getting enough to eat is a continuing challenge for many of the school families.

In May 2022 we introduced the Uphill Porridge Club, which gives every pupil a cup of nutritious maize flour porridge every day in school.

Children who eat a meal a day in school have better concentration, and participate more in class, because they aren't worrying about where their next meal is coming from. A meal a day in school also improves enrolment and attendance.

This is a big undertaking for us, as there are over 300 children at the school. We continually need to raise funds to secure this project for future.

Can you help?

A regular donation of £15 per month will feed 12 children for every year that you donate.

A one-off donation of £30 will feed 2 children for one year.

You can choose how much, and how often you are able to help - every donation makes a difference!

Thank you.
