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.
