£1,500raised of £1,500 target by 30 supporters

Weʼre raising £1,500 to support the Latymer Upper Uganda Foundation so I am going to walk the 100 mile South Downs Way. Yes, you read that right - 100 miles!

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.

Story

In October I am really lucky to be one of 50 Latymer Upper pupils going to Uganda over half term. We are not going for a holiday but to work with three fantastic organisations devoted to improving the lives of poor and orphaned children.

My very generous parents have donated the cost of the trip so everything that I raise goes to support these children who have so little. I have already raised the minimum amount required by school to go with bake sales but I really want to raise as much money as I can. The more I raise the more we can achieve.

On June 10th our whole group is cycling (16.5 miles) or running (5.5 miles) around Richmond Park. I was all set to do this. I even repaired the puncture in my bike but then I got appendicitis and had my appendix taken out on Wednesday (6th June) so now I can't do it.

However my main fundraising activity is still on. It will take place over 9 days in the summer holidays when I am going to walk the full length of the South Downs Way - 100 miles - from Winchester to Eastbourne. I know - crazy - but I wanted to do something that really was challenging and this seemed to fit the bill.

Please read about the Mlisada Orphanage, the Hidden Treasure Primary School and Soft Power Education below and then support me so I can support them and the wonderful work that they do. Thank you B xx

The Mlisada Orphanage aims to reduce the number of children living on the streets by providing a home, education and protection. It strives to restore dignity and self confidence through the teaching of life skills, music and the arts. In doing so, it improves the lives of vulnerable children and their chances for the future. https://mlisada.org

Hidden Treasure Primary School is in the heart of a slum and its pupils come from the poorest section of the community. A high proportion of children have lost parents and family members to AIDS, are from single parent families, or are refugees from the Northern Conflict. The school receives no direct state funding, instead relying on donations, bartering and fees from the very few parents who can afford to pay. In 2017 Latymer Upper funded the building of a classroom. Hopefully in 2018 we can build another one, or even two.

Soft Power Education is a British registered charity, and Ugandan NGO. Their mission is to 'improve quality of life through education'. They focus on supplementing mainstream education with innovative ideas, empowering people to drive forward their own development and providing clean, safe and inspiring learning environments. http://www.softpowereducation.com

Please watch the video for a taster of what we are going to experience. This was made by Leah Rubin, a Latymer student, after the 2016 trip.
