Children of Peace Uganda
Organic Route is excited to announce their support in helping rebuild the lives and communities affected by war in Central Africa. We will work alongside Children of Peace Uganda to support the psycho-social and vocational/educational programs they provide to 1,000 former child soldiers and sex trafficked victims in Northern Uganda and DRC. By supporting Children of Peace Uganda, Organic Route helps promote optimism for impoverished persons, heal brokenhearted individuals and aid the freedom of captives. Throughout donations to Children of Peace Uganda, we directly support child and university sponsorships and Peace Clubs in central eastern Africa.

Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
Organic Route has partnered with agricultural cooperatives that promote local community development. We work with cooperatives supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. They have extended opportunities to the youth and others through beneficial community projects to generate over 4 million USD annually for rural communities. These programs ensure quality production of staple crops to aid agrarian based economies thrive. This program also maintains a healthy supply of cassava for regions in Africa that depend on the crop to promote trade, provide ample food sources and to increase economic growth.
