Current Projects

In the period from 2002 to 2016 Friends of Teso dispatched thirteen containers of donated goods to Teso in Central Uganda. All arrived safely.

This amazing effort by all concerned made an invaluable contribution to sustaining the most disadvantaged in Teso during a very troubled period.

Early shipments were focussed on supporting the population of nearly two million internally displaced persons that had resulted from internal conflicts and natural disasters. These numbers decreased over time, however, as people returned to rebuild their communities.

Latterly, the focus was very much more on assisting with the rebuilding the region’s infrastructure and aiding in the development of self-supporting communities.

When two representatives of Friends of Teso (Uganda) visited Soroti and Kumi in November 2015, they reassessed with our partners in Uganda the best way to offer future support.

As a result, Friends of Teso (Uganda) will no longer send shipments of donated goods, but, instead, raise funds to directly support local development projects in the Teso region.

We will be closely monitoring the success of these enterprises and look forward to providing regular bulletins on their progress.

The original pages on this site will remain as a record of what has been achieved.

This page contains information about our curent projects and events.


Update on Projects (November 2018):

The poultry project at  Ekou Atom is flourishing and further funding has been sent to provide secure fencing. A well has been funded  and will probably be sited in Kumi. Negotiations are in progress with the intention of funding an internet café on Soroti.

Transportation of Goods to Teso:

It was possible to send several boxes of girls sanitary protection on the Mustard Seed Uganda container in September and these have arrived safely.

In October Pat Morris and Geoff Carpenter collected several boxes of the sanitary products for girls from Poole and delivered them to Hackney. Elizabeth (nee Akutwi) had offered to take them with her when she visited her home in Soroti.


Friends of Teso continue to raise money for specific projects. 
A concert will be held on 2nd November 2018, and a coffee morning on 8th November 2018.
