Since 2006, the Trust has operated exclusively in Uganda where it has earned international plaudits for its work developing environmentally-sustainable building projects with local villagers and craftspeople.
The Haileybury Youth Trust (HYT) began life in 1890 in the East End of London, where the great British prime minister (and former Haileyburian), Clement Attlee, was once the Trust’s manager.
Uganda is one of the poorest countries in Africa while its population is one of the fastest-growing on earth. There is an urgent need for skills training and for developing employment opportunity, while at the same time meeting basic humanitarian needs.
HYT trains young Ugandans in an innovative, carbon-saving building technology, giving them construction skills that improve education, opportunity and livelihoods.
HYT had a fantastic 2022. Please see below some of the highlights of what we have been able to achieve thanks to the incredible support from the Haileybury community.
