Jehovah Tours and Travel Uganda Safari­­­ Donation Program

Most of our previous tourists have suggested that we provide guidance on the sorts of donations or contributions people could carry with them, or buy in Uganda to give out. Please make an enquiry if you would like to get more advice.

A cash contribution is often the most practical gift most people can offer even if it is not very thrilling. Visitors sometimes do not want to make a ‘scene’ of giving money in public but this donation helps some people in the community realise some of the needs.

If there is no specific institution on your passionate programme that you would like to support, you could contribute to institutions that Jehovah Tours and Travel supports. These include:

  • Kabushaho Health Centre III-Bushenyi needs funds to provide meals, medication and support with laundry and personal care for the admitted patients who cannot be supported by their families.
  • Kyambogo football team – A team of young men in Kampala needs cash, kits, balls, transport and expenses to continue playing in the amateur league as they work hard to realizing their long term plan of planning in the top division one day.
  • Bumbaire Primary School – We are supporting this government school in Bushenyi district to improve facilities at the school and to raise its standards. In the past, our donations have contributed towards scholastic materials for pupils and staff housing which helps to reduce staff absence and encourage pupils stay in school.
  • Church on the Rock, an NGO for social& religious organisation in Uganda requires funds to help set up projects where the youth can get counseling, information on simple development projects they can take on as a way of fighting idleness and tackle social issues in their communities.
  • You may also wish to donate any leftover currency at the end of your visit for any of these causes.

Often universities bring branded gifts such as pen, USB memory sticks, document cases, business card holders and clothing (fleece jackets, neck ties, baseball caps).

Clothes can be a nice gift but avoid giving ladies shorts, camouflage/army outfits and underwear. Jumpers and jackets are also welcome – it can be cold in Africa.

Footballs/netballs are hugely popular. In case you intend to donate to these games, they should be given to team captains/local leaders/head teachers rather than individuals. Hard wearing balls are best.

Please do not give sweets or money to groups of children, especially selected ‘favourite’ children. This can lead to fights between the children and it encourages children to beg from foreigners.

To avoid disappointing people, please only give out your contacts if you are happy to correspond with people once you have returned home.

Often, gifts are not required. We encourage you to simply engage with Ugandans, especially fellow students; to debate with them, share your experiences and enjoy each other’s company. This will help them enhance their understanding and knowledge, which is considered the best gift one can ever get.
