£520raised of £500 target by 20 supporters

    Weʼve raised £520 to help fund medical and school supplies for Buiga Sunrise School & Health Centre, Uganda

    Funded on Friday, 18th January 2019

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    As many of you already know, Ben and I are taking six months off work and will be traveling through Eastern & Southern Africa.

    During this time, Ben has somehow convinced me that climbing Mount Kilimanjaro (the tallest free standing mountain in the world) is a good idea so we will attempting to reach the summit in February 2019. All donations raised will go towards medical and school supplies for a school and healthcare centre we will be volunteering at in Uganda.

    Buiga Sunrise Centre was founded in 2004 to prioritize child welfare in Uganda. The vision started with a preschool and over time evolved to build a primary school. As the years passed, the need for affordable health care services also became apparent; Mothers were dying giving birth, children were suffering from preventable diseases and many families were affected by AIDS so Grace Family Health Centre was built in 2010, with the goal of reducing maternal, infant and child mortality rates. The original vision of a preschool has grown far beyond what was first imagined, thanks to the love and support of many wonderful people. 

    Any donation, big or small, will be greatly appreciated and go a long way!

    For more info, please visit Buiga Sunrise :)

    Thank you!
