The Uphill Trust
Registered Charity Number: SC045385
Our mission is to support the establishment and development of Uphill Junior School, a small primary school with kindergarten in rural western Uganda. The school was founded by a Ugandan teacher in 2011 and provides educational opportunities for all local children, no matter their means, especially girls, orphans and children from poor families affected by HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening illnesses.
Our current goals include helping to provide suitably equipped school buildings, maintaining a motivated and well-qualified teaching staff, and facilitating access to clean water and good sanitation. When funding or donated items are available we also support projects that benefit the wider community, such as provision of mosquito nets, solar lanterns and reading glasses for the elders.
Since The Uphill Trust was formed, in January 2015, we have bought two plots of land for the school, built a new latrine block plus three classrooms, provided water tanks, desks, curriculum text books, reading books and paid the salaries of 11 teachers, along with other support as agreed with the school's Director, Muhimbise Elius.
The Uphill Trust is a zero-overheads charity, and all the money raised benefits the school and its pupils. Trustees visit (at their own expense) once or twice a year to monitor progress and all projects have a high level of accountability.
The Trust is supported primarily by individual donors, along with occassional donations from charity groups, businesses and some schools.
