This is the third year that we are supporting African Village Support (AVS), a well-known locally run charity whose aim is to help the local people in a rural villages in eastern Uganda to improve the quality of their lives. This year we are supporting an irrigation project focussing on irrigation and agriculture. The overall objective is to support AVS’ women’s and community groups to enhance their livelihoods and enable self-sustainability of food supply—this is despite variations in climate throughout the year.
