£100raised of £1,995 target by 6 supporters

Weʼre raising £1,995 to Project Africa 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.


I‘ve been selected to go on the Berkshire Scouts’ Project Africa expedition to Uganda in 2019. I would like to continue the international development effort started in the Jinja region in 2010 helping: Bukeka Children’s Centre, Kavulo School for the deaf, Butagaya Primary School and Iwolola Primary School. My aim is to raise £1,995. Can I do it? With your help, yes I can! 💪🏿

Project Africa is a long-term international community development programme. Berkshire Scouts are supporting schools, teachers, and local communities to help secure a good education, and a good start in life, for local children from poor rural communities in Uganda.

    It is incredibly brave and kindhearted of you to undertake this. I pray that as you look after others who are less advantaged than you, God will look after you and all that concerns you.
