Guildford Mukono Link


Help with Fundraising - posted 20th August 2020

The Guildford Mukono (Uganda) Link was established in 2003 to foster an understanding between the communities of Guildford and Mukono. It is through friendship that we have found many ways of working together.

The Link sponsored 25,000 seeds to be sown in November and we are now distributing the 50cm saplings to recipients in Mukono.

In the past we have concentrated on education but have diversified into tree planting as well.

We are very keen to find someone to help us with fundraising, e.g. via dinners, or crowdfunding.

Anyone who has an interest in Africa, the environment, education and personal travel with a purpose would enjoy being part of an organisation that really achieves change.

In Guildford we work as a team and have initiated various projects including:

  •         enabling 500 children to play football every week
  •         giving 40 musical instruments to a music school – which now   has a significant number of eager students
  •          sending 7 students to university
  •          building many classroom and teachers’ houses
  •          initiating environmental projects.

We have an excellent, motivated committee in Mukono who are able to work with us to oversee projects funded by Guildford.

We meet 6 times a year.

The Guildford Mukono Link is a registered charity – number 111106.

Mission Statement

The Guildford Mukono (Uganda) Link was established in 2003 to foster an understanding between the communities of Guildford and Mukono. It is through friendship that we have found many ways of working together.

In Guildford, there are 10 Linked schools, Surrey University and individuals are involved in various projects. Some initiatives have arisen because a need has been identified, others have resulted from spontaneous ideas from chance meetings.  All are based on respect for each other’s culture and institutions.

We have an active committee of 10 people and have 200 supporters. There are regular visits to Mukono and reciprocal visits to Guildford.
