Check out the news report below of us on National TV in Uganda. The ‘Slum Report’ describes the poverty in Katanga and the work we are doing to help combat it.
It has now been 2 years since Megan and I first went to Uganda, met some Ugandan friends and started a little project; teaching 15 children, aged between 4-12, in a Slum that is home to 20,000 people.
With an amazing team of Ugandans, we sought to think about our vision for Katanga, working out what it would take to help this community to get out of poverty and live self sustainably.
Fast forward to November 2013 and we have bought buildings, hired some people, continuing to provide education, giving out loans and see many families take their next steps towards getting out of poverty.
We feel like it’s time to have an evening filled with videos, pictures and stories from the past 2 years, talk about where we are currently and our aims and vision for the next coming couple of years.
We understand that we have lots of friends and supporters who are in various countries around the world but if you find yourself in or around Nailsea (near Bristol, England) on the 25th of November then why not come join us.
The event will be at Nailsea school (BS48 2HN) from 8pm.
If your on Facebook, why not RSVP on our Facebook event page. You don’t need to RSVP to come along but if you do it would be very helpful. If you are not on Facebook then you can fill out the little RSVP below.
Hope to see you on the 25th.
Below is a short video that gives you a good overview of Katanga, an urban slum in Uganda, and the work we are doing to help the community.

Today is world water day, a day of raising awareness of the importance of safe, clean drinking water for the people in this world.
Katanga Slum is home to 20 thousand people who live daily without clean water, not only that but they live with streams of dirty sewage water, running past the front doors of their homes. These streams inhabit various waterborne diseases e.g. Malaria and Cholera that can cause serious ill health to people who even live near these waters.
We at Hope for Life Katanga are doing all we can, fighting against thousands of people drinking, bathing or cooking with dirty water.
1 Billion people live without clean drinking water.
See how clean water can change lives throughout the world..
