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!
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.
