Rusty Roof Exchange

In 2011, the VSPT partnered with Kyambura Gorge Lodge to provide new roofs for families in the Kyambura area, situated near Queen Elizabeth National Park in South West Uganda. The project provided five family homes and one primary school with new roofs between June and December 2011. In March 2012 Kirungu and Kichiwamba primary schools and a mosque in Kyenzaza were also re-roofed. The iron sheets were purchased by the VSPT and the Volcanoes Safaris construction team provided transport and helped with the removal and installation of the new roofs. The new roofs will help keep the families dry and healthy during the rainy seasons, improving their welfare through VSPT support. Families who benefited from the initiative were single parents raising children orphaned by AIDS or caring for physically disabled or HIV-positive family members.
