Since 2007, Thousands of People Have Answered the Call To Care
Schools, churches, businesses, civic organizations, neighbors, family and friends from all over the world have made it possible for CTCU’s small group of dedicated volunteers to make a big difference.
Like the First Congregational Church in Madison, Connecticut who galvanized their congregation to work on projects to raise and donate funds to provide access to clean and safe water for the people of Olegei Village. The addition of a village well has helped elevate their safety and wellness by:
Curbing the fatal effects of waterborne disease
Eliminating time spent walking for water so that children can return to school
Allowing villagers to begin investing their time in community development
Then they went on to do it again... 3 more times! That’s just one example of the enormous impact one community can have on another, even one that’s 7,000 miles away. All it takes is an open heart and a helping hand.

Fundraising and Awareness
There are so many ways to get involved! Host a fundraising event, create a fundraiser page, sponsor a walk team, or simply post about us on your social sites. There's no better way to make an impact than to become an active advocate yourself.
Some of the great ways to make a difference are through projects like...
"Well Run" water walks and 1K/5K races that simulate the many miles traveled on a daily basis by kids around the world just to get clean water...raising awareness and fundraising to help others globally.
Collaborate with Earth2 through their WELLfed initiative, to fund a borehole well. Find out more, here: www.earth2wellfed.com. Tell them you want to benefit a Call to Care Uganda project!
Volunteer! Get involved with CTCU! Get on one of our active committees and be the change....literally!
Invite us to come speak to your community group or at your business, church, school, book club...you get the idea! Sharing and raising awareness spreads goodness.

Become a "Twin"
Call to Care Uganda’s school “twinning” program is designed to help connect impoverished schools in Uganda with individuals and groups (schools, churches, clubs, families) in the US. By providing support to the school as a whole (vs. individually sponsoring children), the entire community can be lifted up to succeed and an ongoing relationship can be fostered. Learn More
Create Your Own
There are many ways we can all help the people of Uganda so let's brainstorm together. If you have something special in mind, let us know., we'd love to help coordinate with you.
It's a wonderful way to learn the value of helping others and make personal connections with children in Uganda.
Let's talk and figure out which program is right for you.
Crafts for Water
Our hand-made crafts are produced by Ugandan artisans and make wonderful gifts. 100% of the proceeds from craft sales go to Call to Care Uganda's efforts to provide clean water.
