Making a positive change in the lives of those who need it the most.

How it all started…

Some of us feel the need to walk in charity lines immediately after watching news of children dying in pain, hunger, and thirst. However, for me, it took a visit to Uganda at age 22 along side with my wife and 25 others. We saw the broken lives inflicted by disease, famine,  and war. This was my breaking point, as I stood there on African soil I saw reality stained in blood, sweat, and tears, and I knew I had to do something. My hands were tied but the agony in my heart had me say, yes I can make a difference!

‘The Fair Tradie Project’ was officially established on the 29 July 2010. Our journey began in the town of Jinja (Uganda) for the duration of two weeks. We stayed at the ‘FDLM’ orphanage, and then visited ‘Jenga’, a non-profit organisation in the town ofMbale. These local charities work tirelessly in villages and slums. Their major work involves Uganda’s largest slum, Namatale. One must surely be here to see the astounding impact ‘FDLM’ and ‘Jenga’ have made in their peoples’ lives and communities. The display of sincere hospitality, in an impoverished land, was where I found my amazing grace.

Join our next project.

Applications are now closed for our upcoming trip to FDLM Uganda, where we will be continuing our work at Project Peniel. However, you can still be apart by assisting us financially. Make a tax-deductible donation today!

Our next available trip to Uganda will be scheduled for January 2018. However, if finances allow we will be sending another team mid year 2017. Applications will be accepted from February onwards.
