More Info

Join Self Help Africa for a week-long trip of a lifetime to Uganda, the pearl of Africa, in May 2019.

On this trip, you will meet community groups that Self Help Africa are working with in the most remote locations across Uganda. You will see first-hand the lasting and real impact that Self Help Africa is having on the communities it works with. You will also meet the Self Help Africa local staff who are experts in their field and consistently strive to facilitate the growth of the communities and groups that they work with.

After you travel throughout Uganda with Self Help Africa visiting some of our projects, you will travel south to Masaka, a large town in central Uganda and the site of the International Uganda Marathon. You can decide to do a full marathon, half marathon or a 10km option. The 10km option is suitable for all ages and fitness levels.

This week-long trip will provide you with the most extraordinary opportunities to meet inspirational people, drink in awe inspiring views and challenge yourself on the Uganda International Marathon course.

All funds raised will enable us to invest in small rural businesses and to increase the production and profitability of small farms in Africa – providing women, men, families and communities with the tools and knowledge necessary to work their way out of poverty.

For further information or to express your interest in joining us in May, please do not hesitate to contact Meadbh MacCarthy at the Self Help Africa office on (01) 677 8880 or by email or at
