HYT awarded major grant and launches new website!

HYT is delighted to announce that it has been awarded a Global Grant of £25,000 from the Rotary Foundation International. The award will allow HYT to train 20 young Ugandans in building and construction skills, giving them opportunities for employment and income-generation. In addition to this training programme, HYT will build 14 water storage tanks, 8 shower blocks and 8 pit latrines for schools in impoverished rural villages.

"We are thrilled that HYT will be able to expand its already growing programme of poverty alleviation in this way," says Russell Matcham, the trust’s Coordinator.

HYT has also this week launched its newly-designed website, which can be accessed on hytuganda.com. Please visit the site for more news, photos and film of Haileybury’s very own charity, which is transforming lives in Africa.
