Weʼre raising £200 to help with charities in Uganda
- 21 days to go
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.
in I am raising money to help 3 different charities, by doing a 16 mile sponsored bike ride in Richmond Park. I would be very grateful if you could donate even a small amount of money to help me reach my goal. Here is some info about the charities :
Hidden Treasure Primary School:
Hidden Treasure Primary School is in the heart of the Katwe slum, and the school’s pupils come from the poorest section of the community. A high proportion have lost parents and other family members to AIDS, some come from single-parent families, others are refugees from the Northern Conflict. The school receives no direct state funding but relies on donations, bartering and fees from the few parents who can afford to pay. Last year, we funded the building of a classroom. They are very limited in land and are hoping to build this classroom up to 3 storeys, to enable more children to be educated at their wonderful school.
Soft Power Education:
Soft Power Education (SPE) is a British registered charity and Ugandan NGO. Since 1999 we have been working with communities in Uganda with a mission of: “Improving quality of life through education”.
The vision is for: “An empowered and self-sustaining society taking responsibility for its own development”.
They focus on three key related areas:
1. Alternative Education – Supplementing mainstream education with innovative ideas;
2. Livelihoods – Empowering people to drive forward their own development;
3. School Infrastructure - Providing clean, safe and inspiring learning environments.

Their mission is to reduce the number of children living on the streets in Uganda, by providing them with a home, an education and protection. M-Lisada strives to restore dignity and self-confidence through the teaching of life skills, music and the arts, thereby improving the lives of vulnerable children and their chances for the future.
M-Lisada, has reclaimed over 400 children from the streets. The organization houses 80 children, ranging in age from 3 to 17. Another 80 children come in from the streets every day, for showers, food, counseling, music lessons, a safe place to play, and unqualified support. But each night, because of insufficient finances and space, they must return to the streets.
