I am currently a hard working pupil at Westhill High School and have enrolled myself into the DofE course. For my Silver level, we must raise a large sum of money to travel to Uganda for an expedition. During our stay, we will be building Schools for less fortunate children who can't receive a proper education.
I have been raised in a happy and safe environment. Where we take things such as food, clothes and education for granted. In Uganda, most children can't afford fodder clean clothes. They also have extremely limited education therefore enabling them to have a career. With our education,we can go of to college and get a job and in the end, provide for our family. If they have no education, how will they get a job? How will they get money? How will they provide for there families?
The initial work will take up to three weeks with long days working hard to provide a better life for some people in Uganda. After that, the schools will be stable to use for many years to come.
All the money will go to funding this expedition and everything else we need for it. This includes the flights, the cost of materials to build houses and of course the food to keep me alive. All together its a hefty 3,800 pounds.
