Where We Work

Since  1996, WTU  has  sponsored  hundreds  of  refugees  in Uganda  from  conflict – affected  countries such as  Rwanda,  Sudan,  Burundi,  the   Democratic  Republic  of   Congo,  Kenya,  the   Central   African   Republic,   Ethiopia, and Eritrea.

WTU   has  also   been   the   largest   provider   of    support    for    access    to    post   –   primary   education    and     vocational training for thousands  of   formerly  LRA  abducted,  internally  displaced  and  extremely   marginalized  war – affected  youth in Northern Uganda.

In   Uganda  ,  WTU   works   with   refugees   in  the  districts  of  Adjumani ,  Moyo ,  Arua / Nebbi ,  Koboko ,  Hoima, Masindi, Kyenjojo and  Mbarara;  and  with  IDPs  in  the  Acholi  sub – region.  It  is a   policy  of   WTU   that   field   offices  are  opened where  there is a relatively  big  programme / project. WTU  has been  the  implementing  partner  for  the UNHCR’s  education programmes  for the last 15 years. WTU  has  supported 250 refugee  youth  through University under the DAFI scholarship in 15  Universities  in  Uganda. The  majority  of  these  are  from  Sudan, Somalia, the Democratic Republic  of   Congo,  Rwanda, Ethiopia, and Burundi-almost half of whom are women. In the same period over 1,000 adolescent refugee girls and boys were supported at  secondary  level  in over  46 secondary  schools  and  250   supported  at  post  secondary  vocational  training  in various  institutions. WT also  has it’s own  fund  that  supports  refugee  education at post  graduate  level in  UK universities.

About 8-10 refugee  students  benefit from  this  programme every year.  Other  partners  have  been Embassy of Kingdom  of Netherlands, ERD, Caritas Spain, DFID, Educate! and  the American Ambassadors’ grant in Uganda.
