What we do

In an ideal world this website wouldn’t exist, a client would acknowledge the importance of having web copy before the design starts. Needless to say it’s very important, content is king and people are beginning to understand that. However, back over in reality some project schedules and budgets don’t allow for web copy to be written before the design phase.

How we do

Footsteps Through Africa was founded by Jo Cooper in Rubuguri, Uganda, in 2015.
After spending many years working as a tour guide and travelling all over Southern and East Arica, Jo got to know countless needy communities all around the continent, but it wasn’t until he met Stella, a 12 year old orphan in Uganda, whose dedication to her education inspired Jo and opened his eyes to how much a little bit of help can go along way.
At the age of 12, Stella had joined a local singing and dancing group to try to make enough money to put herself through school, as she had nobody supporting her. After hearing about this, Jo offered to sponsor her schooling…the appreciation shown, not just by her, but the entire community was overwhelming. That was the start of Footsteps Through Africa’s first project, a student sponsorship program, and from that, Footsteps was born.
Since founding Footsteps Through Africa, we have initiated numerous other projects in the area. A community library in Rubuguri provides the community with reading material for the first time; supporting the local medi-clinic assists wit the medical standards; assisting a local school improves education facilities and our cultural centre is a fantastic space for locals and tourists alike.
