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.
Appointment of two super young managers in Uganda has created a burst of ideas and plans! AVS is suddenly thriving, active and with an optimism and a pride that is tangible. And most importantly the feeling that our work is now more visibly recognised, owned and valued not only within the community but further afield brings great pride to all the people who support and remain involved.

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.
