News and events News International Refugee Trust lifts Ugandan villages out of poverty We are pleased to announce the completion of our very first StepUp project (StepUp 001) in northern Uganda. The project aims to enable impoverished farmers to become self-sufficient, improving their quality of life both financially as well as in strengthening community ties – AND IT WORKS! Please take a look at this fantastic video from our partner (OCA) and some of the StepUp 001 families in Uganda. We have a further 4 ongoing StepUp projects and expect them to do just as well as this one. If you would like to donate to the StepUp projects please visit our website https://www.irt.org.uk/donate/donate/5/credit-card - thank you.
