Bringing Paul's Vision to Life


The Paul Sherwen Project was established to support the good that Paul was enacting in Uganda and across East Africa – empowering local people to drive progress and economic development through education, job skills and personal training, while promoting & protecting the unique culture and environment of their communities.

Join us and help make a difference. Our projects directly support local communities of East Africa. Your contribution will make for a more prosperous tomorrow.

Cycle4Paul – 2023 Tour of Karamoja

Paul would have loved this event!!!
$11,000 raised in over 100 donations, many of them for the first time!
Thank you!!!

Katherine, Miranda, Ben & Wilf cycled their hearts out, 350 miles/7 days riding through dry, remote, semi-nomadic communities, welcomed with traditional dances that highlight their joys & challenges.

The Tour of Karamoja gives back by offering scholarships to young women nominated by these communities to attend Matany Girls’ Vocational School.
