Eltham College runs an annual trip during the Summer holidays to Buikwe, Uganda.
Since 2017 Eltham College has partnered with the charity International Needs UK to help and support the local communities in Buikwe, rural Uganda. Through fundraising and child sponsorship our school has made a huge impact in this area.
Every year we visit these communities to experience both the daily lives of the people and see the difference our contribution makes. We are extremely fortunate to be able to go out with the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) teams to educate and work with local families to minimise the risk of water borne diseases. To date this has been a highly successful initiative and many school children and villagers now have access to clean water and washing facilities.
