As part of the trip, Vaughan Gething will visit:

  • Salem tree nursery, which is part of the 10 Million Trees project supported by the Welsh Government. So far over 4.2 million trees have been planted, helping to combat climate change and supporting farmers in the area
  • The Honey Hub, to launch a project which trains farmers to keep bees and harvest honey in a sustainable way
  • Bumayoka Primary School’s mini hydropower project which uses equipment donated by the Welsh charity PONT to provide lighting for the school after dark. He will switch on new state of the art LED lights donated by Welsh firm Sedna Lighting
  • Bumayoka Primary School to see the new roof paid for thanks to money raised by Cardinal Newman High School in Pontypridd
  • Mbale Regional Referral Hospital to tour the units supported by the Welsh community
  • The Teams4U, Menstrual Health project in Kumi, a scheme that provides sanitary solutions to stop thousands of girls in Uganda dropping out of education.
Vaughan Gething said: 
“It’s an absolute privilege to visit to Uganda to see the positive impact our Wales for Africa programme is having on people’s lives.
“I look forward to seeing, first hand, the difference Welsh support and fundraising is making on the ground and meeting the people who’s lives have been changed thanks to the generosity of the people of Wales.”
