    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.


    Cherish Primary school serves a wide community of children. The school is based in the grounds of the community of Cherish Uganda and places are offered to children living with HIV, those who are orphaned and vulnerable children living in abject poverty.
    Dulwich Village C of E Infants' School wants to support the work of Cherish Primary School through training teachers both at Cherish and in the local area. We want to share the skills we have with our colleagues in Uganda and develop our common goal for seeing children learn and flourish at school. We hope that through our connection with the school at Cherish we can help our pupils at DVIS understand how others live and learn and inspire them to love others through what they do and say.
