2019-03-19T12:01:46+00:00March 19th, 2019|NEWS|

“You do brilliant work every day and show commitment and compassion in everything you do.” “We are always in the midst of the messy stuff, finding ways forward.” “Social workers can do so much more than just pick up the pieces.” Describing the work of social workers on this #WorldSocialWorkDay these Twitterings could equally describe [...]

CAN IT BE TRUE?

The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine reported on 20th July 2015 that ‘Testing for malaria reduced over-prescription by more than 70%’. So, adults and children in Kabubbu with cold or flu symptoms only get malaria treatment if our qualified staff test and confirm they have malaria. In Kabubbu we don’t waste donor money! [...]

Quicken Trust’s first 20 years in Kabubbu, Uganda have been exciting, but certainly not vague! 30 years ago, today, Tim Berners-Lee, ‘Web Developer’ and founder of the WorldWide Web submitted a proposal to his boss. "Vague, but exciting", was the response. So many of you have seen the changes in Kabubbu since February 1999 - [...]

It's 8th March, it must be International Women’s Day! Whilst a furore rages in Kampala Uganda about the use of women in the country’s promotion of tourism, and another about its ‘Miss Curvy’ Pageant, Kabubbu women have continued their hardworking daily lives as the backbone of their rural Kabubbu community. Whether that’s toiling in the [...]

ONCE UPON A TIME…

2019-03-01T12:11:24+00:00March 1st, 2019|NEWS|

There were two tourists in Uganda who discovered a village full of destitute children. Even local people described the village as ‘forgotten’… No-one had had the heart to help, not even the local government, such as it was. For World Book Day we remember how hundreds of barefoot children showed-up at a first meeting with [...]

WOW! IT’S FESTIVE! KABUBBU’S WOMEN CELEBRATE!

2019-02-26T12:38:14+00:00February 26th, 2019|NEWS|

Success is in the excitement of the first 43 Kabubbu women benefiting from Street Business School – their first time at school! Faridah & Resty attended a ‘train the trainer’ course last summer, then returned to pass on their learning. The ‘pass it on’ approach seems to be working... 43 very excited women feeling empowered by all [...]

GRANNIE MARGRET CONTINUES TO SMILE!

2019-02-19T11:16:36+00:00February 19th, 2019|NEWS|

What does she know that we don’t? Perhaps nothing… Perhaps she’s simply happy to enjoy her grandchildren. Or perhaps, having worked hard for most of a lifetime – in the quarry and on the land – Margret’s hoping for a pension. That would be good, but there’s no such thing as a weekly state pension [...]

How far has this little boy carried his little sister to nursery today? Could be miles... Today we’re looking for piggybacks in the form of generosity.  Partner a Kabubbu Kid through the ups and downs of school for £1 a day then imagine the difference your generous giving will make to that young life... Confidence [...]
