Weʼre raising £2,500 to I am participating in a marathon to support: https://ugandamarathon.com/charity/the-2018-projects/bugabira-primary-school/
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.

Primary school education is free in Uganda. However, there are too few government schools to meet the population’s huge demand, leaving rural communities, and girls in particular, neglected and without primary education. The Bugabira School is a rural community-run school that offers quality education to all. The school is a place of smiling kids and enthusiastic staff, you have never met students so keen on learning!
By running this marathon I will be supporting the ongoing efforts of this project which has so far constructed a solar system, a new block of school classrooms, a freshwater well, a poultry project developed, a school kitchen, a playground, and a new girls bathroom.
There is still so much left to do to get all these kids the quality of life and education they deserve!
The money donated to me will be put towards student tuition, meals, school supplies and uniforms. It will also go towards construction to help create more space for students to live and learn. I will be helping to construct a dormitory, supply each student with a bed and mattress and housing for staff.
Living at the school dramatically increases student's safety and health. Many students come from large families that they need to support, providing them with quality education is the best way to give them the opportunities to support their families and improve their lives.
