Project Gallery Additional Information

Katwe is one of the largest slum areas within the city of Kampala, with a population estimated at around 20,000, of which 5,000 are children.

Hand in Hand along with other trusts and individuals, has assisted in funding the construction of the school, orphanage and clinic. At the beginning of 2011 all structural work has been completed with only plastering, flooring, doors and windows to be finished when funding is found. In 2012 the roof was completed with funds from an inidividual.

Hand in Hand has provided funding for the clinic which opened in 2008 and is now fully staffed and operational.
