Itambira Island Seeds of Hope is a NGO and UK-registered charity. All profit from tourism supports our local community.

Seeds of Hope is involved in a variety of projects including water tank construction, training courses and other initiatives.

One of our very popular courses is Family Enhancement, which through talks and group activities, teaches principles and techniques to improve family cohesion and relationships.

This summer, the course welcomed a large group of men and women.

One couple were so inspired by the teaching of the course that they decided to get married in a church wedding.

We are so pleased and proud to be involved in helping the local community in such ways.

Charity and Community

Our project works with communities surrounding Lake Bunyonyi through a variety of projects designed to improve their livelihood.

We have been able to fund these projects families and communities in and around Lake Bunyonyi, thanks to:

  • Use of profits from tourism on Itambira Island Seeds of Hope
  • Kind donations of our supporters in the UK and worldwide
