Quicken Trust is a Sussex-based charity which is transforming the lives of people living in poverty in the Ugandan village of Kabubbu. It works in partnership with a range of organisations around the UK and worldwide.

Quicken is proof that small can be beautiful! The Trust has just four staff led by its founder, Geoff Booker, and his wife, Geraldine, who is Director of Development. But it has hundreds of supporters and volunteers including nearly 550 who partner in Kabubbu. (Child Partnership or Elderly Partnership or Project Partnership).

1,200 volunteers have travelled there to work on projects or got involved in the UK (Visit us as a volunteer).

And it’s won plaudits from high places. Uganda’s vice-president, Edward Ssekandi, said after a visit in 2010: “This is the finest example of rural development I have ever seen or heard of in Uganda.”

Oxfam emergency food security expert, Jonathan Brass, said after visiting in 2008: “A great experience and quite inspiring – particularly seeing and knowing how you lead much from the heart, common sense and Divine guidance”.

Bill Farmer – an international development consultant with 40 years’ experience — was so impressed he said: “In all my years of working with aid agencies, this is the Rolls Royce of all the projects I have seen or been involved with.”
