Charity Outreach Project

Buhumba, SW Uganda

Charity organisation Itambira Island Seeds of Hope has delivered a training course in microfinance in Buhumba.

The project assists communities local to Lake Bunyonyi in establishing their own businesses by providing a system of management as well as skills and training in how to set up a business.

Itambira Island Trust has already set up a number of successful microfinance projects in the area. This has helped numerous businesses to get off the ground, from tailoring to agriculture.

Thanks to donations from our supporters and reinvestment of profits from tourism, Itambira Island Seeds of Hope has worked hard to help individuals and families within the local community to achieve a better quality of life and income through delivery of a variety of training courses.

While the pandemic has created certain challenges for the team, they have persevered in finding ways to continue the outreach and training projects.
