Weʼre raising £5,000 to support Nyakatukura Memorial Secondary School and Reaching Orphans for Care with digital connectivity
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.
I first visited Uganda in July 2011. What I was not expecting was to be so moved by my experiences on this trip that I would then volunteer to take over the leadership of our school Uganda Link with Nyakatukura Memorial Secondary School and the Reaching Orphans for Care child education sponsorship programme.
Why am I so committed to our Uganda Link and why did I decide at the beginning of the current national lockdown due to the global pandemic of Clovis-19 to attempt to walk and cycle (on an exercise bike!) the equivalent of the distance from my home in Cheltenham to Nyakatukura in Ibanda, South West Uganda – about 6,000 miles?
• I wanted to regain and maintain my fitness as much as I could
• I wanted to continue to raise the profile of our link School, Nyakatukura, with so many amazing friends, colleagues and pupils out in Ibanda
• I wanted to raise sufficient funds to ensure the sustainability of Nyakatukura and the ROC programme, as I look towards my retirement in the not too distant future.
