Projects

CART has funded educational sponsorship programmes in Kenya, Cameroon, Malawi and The Gambia for over a decade. We invest in the innovative Warm Cots Project for premature babies across Tanzania. Other examples of projects you have supported in the countries we serve are:

2 chicken hatcheries, 1 piggery, 1 goat rearing, 1 duck rearing; 1 Cocoa drier; 2 juicing enterprises; 3 Mosquito net distribution programmes;  1 chapel roof; 1 bridge repair;1 carpentry training workshop; 4 micro-finance schemes; more than 12 boreholes (thanks to Malawi Freshwater Mission); 2 sewing workshops;  3 beekeeping projects; 5 tree planting schemes; 2 maize & bean growing programmes; 1 hydroponic growing project.

The Trustee’s goal is to support sustainable projects that have a lasting impacGoat Rearing in Ugandat on whole communities.  For example, the goat rearing started in Kaliro, Uganda back in 2007.  A total of 12 goats were given to a group of 12 women of whom 7 are widows,  were trained in goat keeping. Whenever a goat delivers a kid or kids, it is passed on to another member outside the initial 12 members. In 2017, 54 women out of the 100 targeted women boast of owning  4 goats or more.

Nkonte Widows and Needy Spiritual Association, at Kaliro, Eastern Uganda has undertaken a number of projects over the years.  Most recently, tree planting. The local tribal chief is so impressed with progress  that he is ceding 10 acres of land for future development – with your help!

Warm Cots

 The high death rate amongst premature babies is a real problem and several hundred lives have already been saved by these wonderful devices in our Tanzanian project to make a locally-built, low-tec, low-cost incubators. The project has grown every year since 2011 so that all hospitals and clinics in the Kilimanjaro region now have cots. In 2016-17 sees expansion into the Mara region. Warm Cots solutions have been copied in Uganda, Malawi and Zambia.

Sponsoring Education

 This is Maureen, one of the youngsters whose education is sponsored by supporters. Sponsorship schemes operate in Liberia, Kenya, Malawi and Cameroon. Money is needed to pay for school fees and provide uniform, books and other school supplies and sponsors receive a photo of the child they support as well as a yearly report on their progress at school. Any amount is welcome as we can pool donations to go towards the schooling of an individual child.

 

Tree Planting

Tree planting schemes aim to support local communities to meet their specific needs.  Through its Harvest Appeal the charity invested in planting schemes in Uganda, Malawi and Tanzania.
