Bringing Hope to Ugandan's Who Need "Amasiko"
 
 

in the dialect of rutoro, a dialect of western uganda

Amasiko = Hope.

People are at the heart of every Amasiko Partnership project. It is our vision that by the end of 2023, the villagers of Kasenda, a regional and remote community in Western Uganda, will have improved living conditions, access to education and opportunities to enable them to be proudly self-sufficient: socially, culturally, and economically.

Below is the photo that changed my life, and helped me decide to create The Amasiko Partnership. Bottle on the right, is water directly from the local stream, the only source of water. The bottle on the left, is from a $35 AUD water filter, is what is know as “white water” as it is considered that only “white people” or “rich people” can drink.

 
 
 
 

We need to rethink charity

If you want to help, choose charities that employ locals for locals.

Our Ultimate Goal

By 2023, it is our goal that the necessary infrastructure be built, with appropriate initiatives created, so that opportunities are created for education, improved living conditions and other initiatives for the villagers of Kasenda, Uganda. We also aspire to create “Amasiko” (Hope) for their future.

Prior to the establishment of The Amasiko Partnership, many of the 2000 villagers who are the poorest in the area, lived with little or no hope (no Amasiko) of their conditions ever improving.

Our Projects.

Amasiko is a creator of community led projects for change. We do this by supporting local initiatives that are of importance to the community, and Wilson (our Ugandan Founder) ensures that any initiatives are respectful of their culture, with learning and self-development opportunities. Our distinctive philosophy places us on the forefront of contemporary community practices. Inspired by the location, the people, and their needs, we create opportunities for active participation in community and self-development, education, improved health, income opportunities and cultural development.

Wilson has donated some of his inherited land, for the development of initiatives that will benefit his local community. Without his generous donation, there would be no land available for community initiatives. Watch here for our Amasiko Philosophy

Our projects align with the United Nations Sustainability Global Goals 2020 benchmark by creating; sustainable communities, good jobs, economic growth and innovation, essential infrastructure, enhanced life on the land, partnerships.

The first project for The Amasiko Partnership, was the provision of water filters to start addressing water borne diseases, which is often not only debilitating for the community, but deadly.
