Since 2018, we have been working with refugee families and Uganda residents in the Palabek Refugee Settlement, Uganda, as they rebuild their lives.
In October 2020, we have started an additional project in partnership with the World Food Programme, supporting even more refugee families across two new settlements in Uganda.
Our panel will introduce you to our projects supporting refugees, stories from the families you support and the practical skills and knowledge we are proud to share with farming families.
This event is free but we welcome any voluntary donations you are able to give. Any support is greatly appreciated and will go towards helping families in rural Africa to grow a brighter future.
You’ll also have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have on the night.
We’ll use the information you provide to keep you in touch about this event and process any donations you’ve given. We value your privacy and we're committed to our Supporter Promise.
