    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 nonprofit.

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


    John Katutsi was so affected by the homeless children in Nteko, Uganda, that he decided to build an orphanage and free school, which is so desperately needed. Orphaned due to poverty or Aids, many children are living on the street, with the dangers that poses. I became friends with John on Facebook, heard his story, and was so affected by his story that I promised to help him raise funds. The money will go towards clearing a plot of land and start the foundations to the orphanage building.

      Hello everyone. It is just over two months since I did the sponsored run, and raised a wonderful £385.00 by doing it( full total £700 with local sponsor forms). The money came in so useful, and shutters and doors have been fitted, plus some desks made. Thank you everyone who donated, I hope to do the same in May next year.

      I am running the 10Km Manchester run in May with my Nephew Steven,to raise funds to build an orphanage in a poor area of Uganda. Please support our efforts,on behalf of homeless children. These children have lost their parents through Aids, poverty or just being abandoned. Please give any amount, large or small, and make our efforts worth while.Thank you. (

    In a poor area of South West Uganda, where children are without homes, school, or enough to eat, a Orphanage and school is desperately needed. Some of the poor children are Batwa or pygmys, from families removed from the Bwindi Forest when it became a National Park.
