Mojitos Against Mosquitoes is a fundraising event for the Uganda Village Project (UVP), an international NGO based in Seattle, WA and Iganga Town, Uganda. Since 2003, the Uganda Village Project has been working with the people of the Iganga district to promote sustainable public health and development programs. We work directly with community based organizations and the local government to utilize local knowledge and maximize community ownership.
The Uganda Village Project conducts a variety programs in villages in rural Eastern Uganda, and these include orphan sponsorship, HIV/AIDS testing, malaria prevention, well and latrine construction, hygiene and sanitation improvement, eye care, and obstetric fistula repair. These programs occur year round through the tireless efforts of local and international staff and volunteers on the ground, and projects are funded solely though individual donations.
