Kyaninga Estate Ltd is a parent company of the following organisations:
Kyaninga Lodge is just 15 minutes from the bustling town of Fort Portal.
The area is a favourite destination in Uganda due to its dazzling scenery of verdant hills, sprawling tea plantations and volcanic crater lakes, as well as its proximity to four of Uganda's magnificent national parks, Kibale Forest, Rwenzori Mountains, Semiliki and Queen Elizabeth.
Perched on the rim of an ancient volcanic crater lake with spectacular views of the legendary Mountains of the Moon in the distance, Kyaninga Lodge offers nine beautifully appointed and spacious thatched cabins featuring private verandas, massive beds decked with soft bed linen and pillows, and exquisite Elgon Olive and marble en-suite bathrooms.
Kyaninga Child Development Centre
Kyaninga Child Development is an initiative by Kyaninga's owners, Steve and Asha Williams, to provide much needed high quality specialised and affordable assessment, treatment, education and support to children living with disabilities, and their families and carers, to enable them to lead more independent lives. When looking around for help for their own son Sidney, Steve and Asha realised that there were very few resources or specialist available in the area to help children with special needs and their parents, and virtually no options at all for families with limited means.
In addition to providing daily comprehensive outpatient therapy at the centre, KCDC provides a daily community outreach program, visiting individual homes, schools, local health centres and communities, meeting the needs of clients who are unable to travel due to limited mobility or financial constraints.
Kyaninga Dairy was established in 2016 with a view to assisting KCDC to become more sustainable and less reliant on donor funding by generating much needed income through the sale of delicious goats' cheese. Kyaninga Dairy through its innovative approach to agriculture and focus on youth empowerment now acts as a financial partner for KCDC and serves the local community through training and employment opportunities. The Dairy produces high quality goats' cheese, which is produced in Fort Portal but sold countrywide to upmarket hotels and restaurants.
Kyaninga Mobility is a proposed workshop that will design, test, develop and manufacture wheelchairs, prosthetics and other mobility equipment that is specially tailored to the rural setting we operate in, allowing us to supply mobility equipment in far greater numbers, reduce waiting times and transform lives. Additional sales of equipment to third parties will help Kyaninga Mobility become self-sustaining by year 3, and profit thereafter will be directed towards supporting the work of KCDC.
