RSK supports UgandAid

September 10, 2019

RSK is providing ongoing support to UgandAid, a charity that raises money to sponsor education, vocational skills and training opportunities for vulnerable young people in Uganda. Since 2002, the charity has sponsored more than 700 students through vocational training courses at the Nile Vocational Institute (NVI) in Njeru. It also organises annual volunteering trips and projects to help the local community.

For the past couple of years, RSK employees have attended the annual UgandAid trip. Consultant landscape architect Emily Wilkinson joined the 2018 trip to build a shared storage facility for the village community of Nyenga, and raised money to sponsor a new student, Amos, through two years of vocational training at NVI. Earlier this year, air quality consultant Annie Trevis joined the 2019 trip to build on this work and catch up with Amos. Since then, RSK has been keen to build on this relationship and has committed to provide an ongoing financial contribution that has enabled sponsorship of another student.

“After seeing the incredible work that Annie and other RSK employees before her have done with UgandAid, I wanted RSK to do more for the charity,” said RSK chief executive officer Alan Ryder. “UgandAid is only small, but very special. It relies solely on donations and fundraising, so RSK has decided to make a financial contribution each month for the foreseeable future, and we hope this is the start of a very special relationship.”

UgandAid sponsors students, chosen because they are very poor, through their course at the NVI in Uganda. Some of these courses relate to what we do at RSK, so supporting the charity seemed like a good fit.

“Recently, UgandAid’s Christine Booth and Steve Edwards visited RSK’s office in Manchester, UK, for our employees to find out more about the charity and the work they do,” says Annie Trevis. “We also received an update on how RSK’s contribution is being used and a letter from our new sponsored student, Dan.”

“The charity really does directly change the lives of these young adults, and by extension their families’ lives too,” Annie adds. “We are looking forward to receiving more updates from the students we are supporting.”

RSK will also have another representative join the UgandAid trip in February 2020. You can find out more about UgandAid on its website.
