Support or Cents for Seedlings Campaign

We would love you support our coffee initiative at Suubi Secondary School. Our aim is to provide an opportunity for our students and their families to create an income which will help them cover the cost of their own education. 
To get this concept off the ground we are aiming to tap in to our grassroots supports and the coffee lovers of Australia. We truly believe that if many people make a small contribution we can make a huge difference in Uganda; that is why we have come up with our Cents For Seedlings campaign.

We would love you to share this page and/or flyer below with your family, friends and work colleagues and ask them to contribute toward buying coffee seedling/s in Uganda. By donating 50 cents for one seedling or, say, collecting the change from their own coffee purchases they will be able to buy enough seedlings to support a student to grow coffee trees at their own home.

How money raised to date has been distributed 

The money you donate is truly helping to improve the lives of people in Uganda. Please visit the Suubi Centre section of this website to read in more detail about the many projects we support and the positive impact it is having on the community. This would not be possible without donations from people like yourself. For this we thank you from the bottom of our heart and send HUGs just for you!

Since HUG's inception in 2007, the money raised has been distributed in the following way:
