Our Partners

Several companies and organisations have been key in helping the Quicken Trust in its mission to tackle the poverty and disease wrecking the Ugandan village of Kabubbu:

Graze linked up with the Quicken Trust in 2010. Graze is one of the fastest growing food distributors in the UK – selling and delivering boxes of snacks which customers pre-select online. Customers can then choose to donate £1 to the Graze School of Farming in Kabubbu. These funds are used to develop agriculture in the village. Trials of new techniques have seen spectacular increases in yields (Agriculture).

British Airways got involved in 2000. During its sponsorship BA provided tickets at reduced rates for specialist consultants and volunteers. By 2012 this enabled the Quicken Trust to take 123 volunteers to Kabubbu to help the work of transforming the village. BA has also allowed Quicken to take nearly 300 bags as excess luggage every year. This kept costs down and meant more vital equipment and goods could get to those who needed it.

Quicken puts BA’s involvement down to “Divine intervention”. The charity sent the airline a calendar and a photo as a “thank you” for earlier help. It arrived on the day senior BA officials were meeting to discuss choosing an extra charity to support. Quicken Trust got the nod and a fruitful 10 year partnership began which  only ended when BA transferred their overseas charitable support to another organisation.
