Hello and thanks for visiting my page!
I am visting Uganda this summer for 6 weeks (16th July-26th August) in Kanungu district and would like to ask for your help. I am going to spend the 6 weeks teaching children but will also be involved in other community projects such as a HIV Awareness Campaign and possibly building work.
I have never been to Uganda before, but I know the country is 35% below the poverty line, where a lot of the population have no access to safe water or sanitation services. After spending a lot of time in similar communities in Ghana, I know how important it is that the conditions of life are improved, and I want to do everything I can to help.
Depending on how much I raise, this could range from providing water filters to providing exercise books for schools, as supplies really are limited. 70% of people in Kanungu District are educated to primary level but not beyond, and only 13% of people are eductaed at secondary level or beyond.
Please note, none of the money that I fundraise will go towards funding my trip. The money will only go towards providing resources directly to those in Uganda.
I greatly appreciate any of your support and donations, as a little bit will go a long way in Uganda.
Thanks for taking the time to read this!
