What is the Nnabagereka Development Trust?
The NDT, established in 2000, is a non-governmental organization whose programs focus on:

  • support to women (micro finance, reproductive health, community development)
  • education (basic literacy, girl’s education, and youth employment and vocational skills training) and
  • support to orphans and vulnerable groups (street children nutrition program, support to Sanyu Babies Home).

    The Nnabagereka counts on your support
    The Nabagerekka Development Trust is counting on the support of the Ugandan Community and friends to turn out in big numbers in support of NDT's development programs. It will also be an opportunity to learn more about NDTs activities. The evening of rich cultural events will feature a fun fashion show, Kiganda dance, Entogooro and music by DJ Mondy.
