Iganga, Uganda projects for charity.


Children from Iganga

Friends of Iganga regularly run charity projects in Iganga, Uganda. We are a charity for Iganga which is a town in eastern Uganda.

Situated almost on the Equator, Iganga is a lively market town of 40,000 people in central Uganda, not far from Lake Victoria and the source of the White Nile.
It has links with Daventry & District in the United Kingdom.

We are now developing our website to tell you more about our activities.

Have a look at some of our Iganga, Uganda Charity Projects.
