According to the royal website, the Princess Royal has been president of Save the Children since 1970 and worked with organizations for people with disabilities across the United Kingdom.
During her time in Uganda, Anne, Princess Royal, will be opening the first commercial bank in the Nakivale Refugee Settlement, alongside the financial solutions nonprofit Opportunity International (via Omid Scobie). The community is located in the Isingiro District in the south of Uganda, and is the oldest refugee settlement in Africa, according to UN Habitat. She will also make a stop at the Kyangwali Refugee Settlement in the name of Save the Children UK.
Next in the schedule is a visit to Salaama School for the Blind, where Princess Anne will meet with deaf-blind students.

To conclude her Uganda trip, the Princess Royal will be attending a truck driving demonstration by students of Safe Way Right Way, a nonprofit dedicated to achieve safer roads in Uganda.
