About The Trust

Background

Hugh PilkingtonIn 1977, Hugh Austin Windle Pilkington set up the Windle Charitable Trust in Kenya to support needy Kenya students and refugees elsewhere in Africa to study in British universities.

Hugh believed that good education was essential if Africa was to meet the challenges it faced. Before his death in 1986, Hugh had made arrangements for his personal estate to be used to set up a foundation to promote the education of refugees.

In 1988 the Huge Pilkington Charitable Trust (HPCT) was established in the UK. Subsequently Windle Trust programs were set up in Uganda in 1997. Other Program Offices where set up in Khartoum, Ethiopia and Juba in 2005 At the moment Windle Trust Uganda is a member of the Windle Trust International Federation with programs in UK as Windle Trust International, in Kenya as WTK, in Uganda as WTU, in Khartoum as WTI Sudan and in Southern Sudan as WTI Southern Sudan.

Who Are We?

Windle Trust Uganda is a registered NGO whose mission is to provide refugees, Internally Displaced People (IDPs) and other war-affected Africans with access to education and training. Windle Trust Uganda has been a leading provider of access to university education, post-primary education, and vocational training for conflict-affected Africans since 1996.

Who Does Windle Trust Uganda Help?

Windle Trust Uganda helps the war-affected people whom  have lost their families, social networks, property, and money, and no longer have a place to call home. Since 1996, Windle Trust has sponsored hundreds of refugees in Uganda from conflict-affected countries such as Rwanda, Sudan, Burundi, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya, and the Central African Republic, Ethiopia, and Eritrea. Since 2006, Windle Trust Uganda has also been the largest provider of support for access to post-primary and vocational training for thousands of displaced and extremely marginalized war-affected youth in Northern Uganda.

How Does Windle Trust Uganda Help?

Windle Trust Uganda believes that education has the capacity to transform lives and promote peaceful and harmonious co-existence among communities. We therefore work to help refugees, displaced people and others affected by conflict to access education and training, empowering them to make a positive contribution in their communities through leadership and socioeconomic improvement, by opening doors to universities, graduate schools, post-primary schools, and vocational training institutions. Windle Trust Uganda provides conflict-affected people opportunities to heal psychologically and emotionally, reconstruct their lives, and gain knowledge and skills to gain employment and eventually, to help rebuild their communities and countries.
