PONT is a small charity in Rhondda Cynon Taff, South Wales making a big difference in Mbale, Eastern Uganda.
We’re run by volunteers through direct community links. We support Ugandan organisations who have the potential to tackle poverty in their towns and villages. Our partnership is based on friendship, commitment and respect.
We set up PONT to see what difference we could make in one specific area of Africa and one area of Wales. A decade on, people have become our friends. Together we’ve built projects that work. We’re seeing improvements to health, livelihoods, learning and the environment. We’re changing lives. And we want to change more.
Our projects touch many areas of life...
...they're all about reducing the impact of poverty.
We’re impacting lives
But we want to do more
You can be part of it
People in Mbale have the power to improve the lives of their communities. PONT gives people in Wales the chance to give their time, skills or money to support them, and make a real specific difference. There’s lots of ways you can join in:
