2 Min Read

In these photos is part of the story of what African diaspora can do when to impact development. Ruhanga is a remote village in SW Uganda and until recently had no running water and the local children especially those under 8 had no access to water. Having been introduced to the village by Ann McCarthy, I got work and in the early days that involved bringing a group of African diaspora women like Grace and Emang to help of and we set up a charity

 Let Them Help Themselves Out Of Poverty– is a UK registered charity no. 1127387

As they say the rest is history
