Over the past ten years MACS Software has supported ActionAid in Nebbi, Uganda through the child sponsorship program. We are delighted that our sponsor, Kevine, has successfully completed her school education and we wish her all the very best with the next chapter of her life. We would also like to welcome Viola, who has become our new sponsor. Viola will benefit from the education program provided to improve the literacy rate in the Nebbi district which is presently low, with just 29% for women and 67% for men.

Earlier this year, following a devastating earthquake and subsequent cholera outbreak, MACS sent in reinforcements to get the SCMS (a delivery partner for USAID) warehouse, which despatches vital antiviral drugs, back to full operational capacity.
We all celebrated MACS Software’s 21st birthday recently with a staff trip to the Sutton Elms Go-Karting circuit in Leicestershire in order to let off a little steam. Some of the team showed a natural aptitude for thrashing around a race track – a far cry from our day jobs designing software for some of the world’s leading corporations.
