A recent trip held by UK Friends who also included members from the UK committee, led by the founder of the Mityana Charity, Jean Ajin to Uganda offered a firsthand look at the vital work undertaken by an PaCT dedicated to education, sponsorship, rainwater harvesting, and healthcare infrastructure development. The trip commenced with an exploration of the organization’s educational initiatives, showcasing its commitment to providing quality education to underprivileged communities. Donors witnessed the transformative impact of sponsorships on the lives of children, opening doors to a brighter future.

They journeyed to Nabukenya Primary School, one of PaCT’s key partner schools which was built with the support of our lovely team in the UK. Visiting the nearby coffee farm also allowed our friends to witness the intricate process of coffee cultivation – a cornerstone of the region’s economy.

The visit also highlighted the organization’s efforts in water sustainability projects. Furthermore, it also included a visit to a maternity ward construction site, demonstrating progress towards enhancing maternal and infant healthcare services. The construction aimed to address critical healthcare needs, contributing to the reduction of maternal and infant mortality rates in the region.

Immersing themselves in the cultural fabric of Mityana, our visitors participated in a special culture night, where the town elders and PaCT Staff who narrated the history of Uganda’s tribes and uncover the rich local heritage. The cultural experience also continued to Ttanda pits, offering insights into local traditions and Ugandan folklore.

Following these enlightening experiences, donors embarked on a unique safari adventure, including gorilla trekking. This immersive experience allowed donors to witness Uganda’s breathtaking natural beauty and encounter its majestic wildlife up close, fostering a deeper appreciation for conservation efforts and the importance of preserving Uganda’s ecological treasures.
