We have been established since 2003 supporting small villages in eastern Uganda. Our aim is to help improve the quality of life of both adults and children. Working as a humanitarian, community based organisation, we have delivered a number of sustainable community projects including the building of a school hostel for girls and a large community centre, supporting over 20 women's groups and more than 50 students educated along with livelihood projects for young people.
On the 5th June 2016 some 2,600 Ugandan and international participants set off our 10km, half-marathon and full-marathon races. Running through the stunning Uganda countryside, they raised over £195,000 for local projects and charities working in this beautiful country. We are delighted to say that as one of the beneficiaries of the Uganda International Marathon £2,456.60 was raised for AVS by Victoria Closs.
In our newsletters you can follow the progress we make and give you the opportunity to learn about the challenges faced by theses rural communities in eastern Uganda and how we help make a difference. There is also a chance to meet the people who support AVS and the various fund raising events they get involved with. You can also catch up on what our UK team of volunteers and Trustees have been doing to raise awareness and funds for our charity.
