What we do

We work with communities in Uganda to supply the most needy families with rainwater tanks and equip them with the knowledge and tools to use them. Each year we take one or two groups of volunteers, who have all raised money to come along, out to Uganda for a fortnight they will never forget.

The results are households who are able to grow their own produce and become self-sufficient.  We’ve evidenced many families selling excess produce at market and using this money to improve their lives, such as sending their children to school.

There has been much research published in recent times about “Climate Change”. It has been acknowledged that areas that are feeling the effects first and in the most extreme nature are those countries already affected by extreme weather conditions. One such place is Uganda. DRIP was formed with the aim of combating the effects of climate change, namely, reduced food security in sub-Saharan Africa, particularly Uganda.

We are a wholly volunteer run charity, we run a lean organisation with minimal overheads. We welcome volunteers who can help in the UK support as well as in the field – if you have a skill we can probably use it. If you’d like to lend a hand, please don’t hesitate to contact us by emailing andrew@drip.org.uk, we’re always happy to welcome new volunteers  who would like to dedicate some of their time to charity.
