What We Need

Firefly Uganda is situated on a paradise island in the middle of Lake Victoria, Uganda. We are extremely diverse in the issues we tackle out here, but focus on education, healthcare, and environmental issues, making sure that we encompass conservation, and animal rights, vocational diversity, perma-culture farming, the upliftment of women within the communities, and the design and construction of environmental engineering solutions that will provide these poverty stricken communities with a simple but effective infrastructure that could be easily adapted to western issues.
