farming for their living.
In Kimaluli-Butta, the people are ready and willing to work, but often lack resources. The UK charity raises funds which can be used to carry out projects that improve the quality of life and opportunities for the whole community. The UK charity does not decide the local priorities: their approach is based on partnership: supporters provide the funds to enable Ugandans to meet the needs of their own communities.
