Project Majala, Uganda

On June 1st 2024, the trustees of As-Salaam Foundation will be embarking on a journey to Majala, Uganda, to lend a helping hand to a small village in need.

About Majala

Majala is home to around 1,850 people who rely heavily on small-scale agriculture to make ends meet. Unfortunately, poverty still grips this community tightly due to adverse weather, lack of infrastructure and lack of job opportunities.
The district of Mbale faces various challenges that contribute to its status as a low-income country:
  1. History of Political Instability: Uganda has experienced periods of political instability, including dictatorships and civil conflicts, which have disrupted economic development and social cohesion.
  2. Weak Infrastructure: Inadequate infrastructure, including roads, electricity, and water supply, hampers economic growth and limits access to markets, healthcare, and education.
  3. Limited Access to Education: While Uganda has made progress in expanding access to education, there are still significant challenges, including high dropout rates, teacher shortages, and disparities in educational quality between urban and rural areas.
  4. Healthcare Challenges: Uganda faces various health challenges, including high rates of HIV/AIDS, malaria, and other infectious diseases. Limited access to healthcare services and infrastructure exacerbates these issues.
  5. Agricultural Dependency: The majority of Uganda’s population relies on agriculture for their livelihoods, yet productivity remains low due to factors such as inadequate infrastructure, limited access to modern farming techniques, and vulnerability to climate change.
  6. Corruption: Corruption is a pervasive issue in Uganda, affecting various sectors, including governance, business, and public services. It undermines public trust, discourages investment, and diverts resources away from essential services and infrastructure development.
  7. Population Growth: Uganda has one of the highest population growth rates globally, which puts pressure on resources and services, exacerbating poverty and inequality.
  8. Limited Industrialization: Uganda’s economy is largely based on agriculture and natural resource extraction, with limited industrialization and diversification. This limits job creation and economic growth opportunities.
  9. Regional Conflicts and Refugee Crises: Uganda has been affected by conflicts in neighbouring countries, leading to refugee influxes and straining resources and services in host communities.

Addressing these challenges requires sustained efforts in improving governance, investing in infrastructure and education, promoting inclusive economic growth, and addressing the root causes of poverty and inequality.

Our objectives

Build a village

The main objective is simple yet profound: to build an entire village for one family at a time – called “As-Salaam Village”. Each house costs £1,200 to build, and will provide each family with the comfort of having their own personal sanctuary.

Empower the community with livestock

Our secondary aim is to provide a mixture of livestock, including cattle and goats, which will diversify their sources of income and help them cope with economic uncertainties. Cows will come at a cost of £200 each and goats at a cost of £50 each.

Provide nutritional food packs

Finally some food packs at £40 each to provide nutritious food for the entire month.

Join us in this noble cause. Your support, no matter how big or small, can help provide shelter, stability, and a brighter future for those in need.

Together, we can transform lives and sow the seeds of hope in Majala.

"Nelson Mandela"

As long as poverty, injustice, and gross inequality persist in our world, none of us can truly rest.
