Weʼre raising £1,800 to Volunteer in Uganda

Baxterley, United Kingdom

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.


Pictured above is an example of a similar project we have previously completed at a Peruvian orphanage in June 2014.

June 2018, primary school volunteer project in Uganda.

In June 2018, myself and Luke, have decided that we will both be embarking on a journey to Uganda. On arriving we will both be volunteering at a primary school, near the city of Kampala.

During our stay we will be contributing, not only to teaching at the school, but also assisting with the maintenance of the school such as:

• Any building work which needs to be one in or around the school

• Helping to maintain the general upkeep of the building, 

• Assisting with serving porridge to the children, which for some may be their only hot meal of the day,

• Walking the children home from school, children as young as 5 will walk 2 hours a day getting to and from school,

• Organising and leading afterschool activities.

We aspire to enrich the lives of the young people throughout our stay  to  those  who  do  not  have  the  luxury  of  our  educational  facilities  here  in  the  UK.

Whilst myself and Luke have covered a large majority of the expenses, which are involved with volunteer work, further donations are greatly appreciated. The proceeds will contribute to: our economy flights to Entebbe airport including excess baggage for donations, school uniforms, learning resources, shoes for the children and funds to support the school site towards projects, upkeep, staffing etc. Any and all contributions are greatly appreciated.

With your help we hope to make a real difference and impact on all the children's lives.

Thank you all so much for your generosity!
