Visiting Uganda and Kenya, and making friends with church leaders there, has made us want to make a difference and invest in their future. Kuanzia Trust was established to do just that by a small group of people who have visited East Africa regularly over the past 20 years and wanted to help local people themselves to bring about change.We can use what, in Western terms, are relatively small amounts of money to invest in projects that will change many lives.

We select schemes that, at least in part, are able to become self-sustaining, rather than continually reliant on outside funding. Each project comes from a local vision and is led on the ground by nationals known personally to the Kuanzia trustees, through accredited local NGOs.
