These projects include women and youth empowerment, education and health initiatives which endeavour to create a ripple effect that empowers not only women, but the entire communities to which they belong.

Volunteer Testimonials

*I worked with TORUWU for 6 weeks during March and April of 2015.

*My main activity was fundraising of initial cost for TORUWU’s pineapple wine project.

*Our goal was to allocate the profit of wine to TORUWU’s primary school (St. Mary’s) for needy children. The fundraise succeeded and we are still working together for further development of the wine project.

It is impossible to describe how much I’ve learned from TORUWU. The leaders were ambitious, warm-hearted people and gave me a new perspective of life. In addition, you will meet fantastic friends in Kikajjo, all of whom are caring and always support your challenge. You will find your second home here.

I wanted to contribute to supporting these families in a sustainable way. Therefore, I initiated and recently completed a crowdfunding campaign to finance an irrigation system which is currently installed in a field owned by TORUWU. Upon being finalized, this system will enable them to harvest large quantities of fruits and vegetables. So far, planting and harvesting crops have been largely unsuccessful due to long dry seasons with little rain. As many disabled children participating in the physiotherapy are undernourished and mothers often lack the knowledge and/or financial means on how to feed their children properly, Augustine and Sophie – TORUWU’s founders – and I hope to improve the children’s overall condition and raise their awareness about a healthy diet by giving out fresh produce to them regularly.
