Esuubi means ‘hope’ in Luganda and the Esuubi Trust aims to do just that, to give Ugandan children hope of a future.
The Esuubi Trust is a charity set up by Kate who was in the youth group I used to run when I was a youth worker in Eastbourne. Note to youth workers reading: this is proof that the young people you work with can go on to do great things despite their youth workers.
The Esuubi Trust works on a child sponsorship basis. I know some people reading might point out that there are pros and cons of child sponsorship, but the great thing about a small charity is that the people running it have a direct connection with the people they are helping and there isn’t the sense that your money is just disappearing into a large organisation. If anyone reading would like to support them then I can certainly vouch that they are good and trustworthy people. I think this is a fantastic project and I wish Kate and all those who are helping her all the best in this venture.
