February's Featured Cause - Haileybury Youth Trust


Posted on January 30th, 2017 by Laura Hollis

We are pleased to announce that Haileybury Youth Trust is TheGivingMachine’s featured cause for February.

This means all windfall  donations made by givers that do not log on to their account when shopping via TheGivingMachine will go to Haileybury Youth Trust.

HYT trains young Ugandans in an innovative, carbon-saving building technology, giving them construction skills that improve education, opportunity and livelihoods.

We also transform communities, building low-cost school buildings and installing rainwater storage tanks and sanitation facilities. This is done in a way that preserves rather than damages the beautiful Ugandan landscape.

Through its training schemes, HYT promotes the use of the Interlocking Stabilised Soil Block, a low-cost, carbon-saving alternative to the environmentally damaging fired brick.

The ISSB is a compressed earth technology that is readily adopted in both rural communities and urban areas. HYT’s experienced team of trainers lead this successful programme of sustainable development.

Uganda has one of the fastest growing populations 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 has a proven record of working in Uganda, both in our One Village at a Time project and with other partners, local, national and international. HYT gives a hand up not a hand out.
