Projects

We aim to support a combination of both short-term projects, which provide immediate food relief, and long-term food security projects, which support people in growing their own food.

The money we raise will go towards providing vegan food, either via projects which are already vegan, or by working with non-vegan projects where our donations will be used to increase the availability of vegan food. Where appropriate and necessary, we may also fund essential non-food items such as toiletries, fuel, clean water and medicine in order to enable the safe preparation and consumption of food and effective absorption of nutrients.

Information about the projects we support is below, and there are a number of other inspiring projects which we hope to be able to support in the near future. Keep an eye on this page for updates about current and future projects.

For some projects you can donate directly to the organisation which runs them rather than donating to Vegans Against World Hunger. If you donate directly because of finding out about the projects through us, we’d appreciate it if you could let us know by clicking here.



The Uganda Food Parcel Project

Our new project The Uganda Food Parcel Project, run in conjunction with our partner Devon Development Education (DDE)*, gives vegan food directly to families suffering from food poverty in the Mubende District of Uganda.

DDE’s Ugandan based volunteer, Godfrey Kisakye, works with the headteacher of the local school to identify those families most in need. He then buys maize flour, beans, cooking oil and salt in the local town and delivers it directly to the families by motorbike. Many of these families are headed by elderly widows, caring for their young, orphaned grandchildren.

The following are some of the people this project has helped so far:

  • A woman in her mid-seventies who lost all her family in Rwanda. She is unwell due to diabetes. She lives in a grass-thatched house which belongs to a neighbour and survives on food given to her by friends and neighbours. The day our food parcel was delivered she didn’t have anything she could eat for lunch.
  • A man in his mid-sixties who lives alone and has lung problems. He has a small, half-acre plot of land but because he has difficulty breathing, he can’t work the land. He rents half of the land in exchange for help growing some crops, but it often doesn’t provide enough to support him throughout the year.
  • A woman in her mid-seventies, who was widowed over 20 years ago, and her two grandchildren. She has a small piece of land where, with the help of her neighbours, she usually grows beans and maize. This year’s crops were destroyed by storms, leaving the family with no food. The only food they had before they received our food parcels was some bananas given to them by neighbours. They said our food parcel would last them around a month.
  • A 90-year woman who lives with her daughter and four grandchildren. She came from Rwanda and rents a small house with a small plot of land. This year they were growing beans and maize, but the entire crop was destroyed by a storm.

All of these people were in dire need of food and were so happy, relieved and grateful to receive our food parcels.

£30 will buy enough to feed a family of five for 14 days. There are no UK overheads for this project and 100% of donations will be sent to Uganda to buy food and cover the small transport costs associated with delivering the food locally.

We’d love to be able to reach more people with this project so if you’re able make a donation please do so here. Please state The Uganda Food Parcel Project (or TUFPP) when making your donation. Any amount big or small is greatly appreciated.

*Please note that DDE is not a vegan organisation and runs other projects which are not vegan. By donating through Vegans Against World Hunger, 100% of your donation will go towards this vegan project.

Kisangala Girls Club, Tororo District, Uganda.

Our Kisangala Girls Club project provides training in sustainable organic agriculture and provides basic tools and seeds to its members who are school age girls who became pregnant during Uganda’s first Covid-19 lockdown. The project is run in conjunction with our partner Devon Development Education (DDE)*, by their volunteer, Beatrice Okumu.

The name, Kisangala Girls Club, was chosen by the members and translates as Happy Girls Club. The training and practical support provided by Kisangala Girls Club ensures that the members are better able to feed themselves and their babies, and so far we’ve helped twenty girls.

Beatrice provides an introduction to sustainable organic agriculture, topics include; making liquid manure from green plants, making raised beds, making nursery beds and planting seeds. Each girl receives an African hoe and a panga (a cutlass) which are the two most fundamental tools needed by subsistence farmers. The girls are also given seeds to take home and plant.

As well as the agricultural training, Beatrice talks to the girls about the importance of attending ante- and post-natal clinics. The girls and their parents are really grateful for the practical support and advice they receive, and Beatrice keeps in touch with the girls to offer support whenever she can.

There are more vulnerable girls who need our support, so if you’re able make a donation please do so here.  Please state Kisangala Girls Club (or KGC) when making your donation. Any amount big or small is greatly appreciated.

*Please note that DDE is not a vegan organisation and runs other projects which are not vegan. By donating through Vegans Against World Hunger, 100% of your donation will go towards this vegan project.
