who we are
We are a UK-based international development CIO supporting communities in Uganda to adapt to the changing environment.
Our ambition is to support individuals, groups and communities to become more resilient, with the knowledge, skills and resources they need to adapt to the changing climate and to achieve a better, more sustainable quality of life.
We directly support the community of Bunambutye and work with local organisations in Uganda also tackling climate change.
We have clear principles that underpin our practice and work in partnership with communities, in solidarity against climate change and in the spirit of global social justice.
