We work in Kanungu in the far Southwest of Uganda because it is a region in great need of help. That doesn’t make it sound very nice. Actually, it is a beautiful place with warm, welcoming and happy people.
It is a joy to visit rural Uganda, to walk the hills, see the wildlife and, most importantly, meet the local people. Lack of money certainly doesn’t result in less hospitality. And, everywhere you go, there are smiling children who stop what they are doing to wave at mzungo (white visitors) as they drive past.
It is a long drive from Kampala, the capital, to Kanungu and its neighbouring districts Rukungiri, Kabale and Kisoro. The last two hours are on dirt roads so travel is slow but the scenery makes up for the delay.
If you are interested in visiting, do get in touch with us for introductions and travel tips.
This page provides some facts about Kanungu, an introduction to the people and some photographs of the area.
