The AidChild Equator Shop

Just a few steps north of the equator line on Masaka Road — at latitude 0.000663:

Beckoning travelers off the road as they cross the equator, (formerly AidChild’s Equation Café) our team satisfies a tourist’s quest for an exotic setting, a cold drink, and a hot meal. A wide veranda and garden seating also offer our guest refreshment as they prepare for their onward journey.


Sitting just a few meters north of the equator, the AidChild Café & Gallery is right on your way when visiting the gorillas at Bwindi, or the lions and elephants at Queen Elizabeth National Park!


We currently have multi-year contracts with G-Adventures Travel, hosting National Geographic Travel Journeys, and YOLO Safari Groups–in partnership with the Planeterra Foundation.


Founded in 2002, with a grant from USAID, the café, its gallery of African art, and its shop stocked with the best of fair-trade, East-African crafts, demonstrates our commitment and vision for sustainable, income-producing, job-creating businesses that directly fund our leadership institute and human development center.


We even have a bookshop with more than 110 titles by Ugandan authors and residents.


See our menu here and lots more pics and info on the cafe’s Facebook page. Feel free to call us at 0777.44.58.10.
