We work alongside partner organisations throughout the world who are seeking to relieve distress.

Teams4U’s approach is to partner with local organisations that are already in existence within a country.

We believe that local organisations are best placed to understand the needs of the children with whom they work.

Therefore we do not tell them what to do, but seek to support them in ways to help them to become more effective and realise their vision.

Where appropriate, Teams4U opens opportunities for local organisations to link up and support one another.

Over the next 3-5 years our focus is to develop long term integrated programmes for our partners and the projects in which we support them. Through this we aim to build the capacity and capability of our partners to improve the lives of vulnerable children.

Our partners are:

AIC and Teams4U

AIC, in partnership with Teams4U, have organised a programme where sports teams are run in conjunction with HIV/AIDS testing, education and treatment services. The idea originated in the Dokolo district where local health authorities were struggling to reach remote communities in the district to provide testing and to communicate their vital life saving-messages. They approached Teams4U to help and through our sports teams at schools, the health officers were able to engage with people on a large scale to carry out their work.The programme has been so successful that Teams4U have now expanded into new areas, formally partnering with AIC.

The Future

Uganda is at the heart of the sub-saharan HIV/AIDS pandemic and so together we aim to:

  • Provide HIV testing, education and counselling to the community of Kumi
  • Provide appropriate referrals to HIV positive clients for ongoing care and support
  • Provide quality TB screening and treatment for both positive and negative HIV clients
  • Increase awareness of HIV/AIDS

How to help

Just £2.50 will pay for 1 Ugandan to be tested for a life-threatening illness.

Women’s Vocational Centre

Through Abu and his team, Teams4U are also partnering with a vocational college specialising in taking young women off the streets and giving them basic life skills. Several trades such as hair-dressing and tailoring are taught and the necessary professional materials they require to start in employment are given to them on graduation.

The Future

T4U support the salaries of the 5 tutors training the women in catering, tailoring, hairdressing, numeracy and literacy, whilst also the salary and expenses of the Centre Manager.

In addition, we are looking to update the equipment used by the women in their courses as, at the moment, 10 women are training on just 2 sewing machines!
