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.
We are very excited and thrilled to have three supporters enter the Ugandan International Marathon which takes place this year from June 4th and is a 7 day challenge on the Equator culminating in a race like no other. Our three participants, Louise How, Rob Green and Jennifer Sole will join over 3,000 others from all around the world to take part in a 10K, half or full marathon distance through a beautiful but tough and rural course.

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.
Working with The Farmers Guide Uganda we are training the AVS women groups in sustainable farming and agribusiness. The main aim is to improve these womens livelihoods through training to improve their yields and income and standards of living. More information on our development will be available soon. We have also completed training over 100 women on modern sustainable agriculture and agribusiness which we hope will give our womens groups a better and more successful way of growing and cultivating crops.
