Edirisa UK

Edirisa UK

Edirisa UK was founded by Sheila Windridge in 2005 to support a small community in South Western Uganda. We are working to improve the living conditions of the local people, focusing on education, health and sanitation, the provision of clean water and sustainable enterprise.We began by funding a primary school on the shores of Lake Bunyonyi and have extended our activities to include building and running 4 nursery schools, renovating 5 primary schools, establishing a special needs education centre where 80 children board, installing over 60 water harvesting tanks in the community and are building a clinic on Bwama Island at Lake Bunyonyi.Through our volunteer programme we run workshops in the primary schools and nurseries, supporting the teachers and improving the learning environment. Volunteers also take part in community focus groups and a variety of other activities.We support sustainable projects for local communities – craft making, bee-keeping, vegetable gardens and orchards – as we believe in a “hand up” not a “hand out”.
