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.


This summer I am returning to Uganda to work in Kampala, Jinja and Kapchorwa with several different Christian charities empowering young women. Whilst I am there, I will be staying with Smile Charity Uganda, the amazing local charity that I volunteered with during my gap year.

I will be donating money directly to SCU as well as paying the cost of hosting me separately. I am raising the money through a crowdfunding page rather than through the charity's one because I have been asked to transfer the money directly as otherwise it goes into a 'general pot.' Rest assured, every penny of the money donated through this page will go directly to SCU's work.

Therefore, this weekend I will be walking the Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge in order to raise money to donate to SCU. The route will be 35km. Although I enjoy hill walking, I have not walked this far in a day before so it will be a challenge for me!

Smile Charity Uganda focuses on children-at-risk through empowering families and the Church. It holistically empowered and transformed lives through education, practical evangelism and community outreach in Uganda. It is run by fantastic local volunteers from the community.

Please consider supporting SCU if you can as they seek to develop their existing community projects. You can find out more about them here:

Thank you so much- I know from working with SCU on the ground how much difference even a small amount of money makes!

    Thank you SO much to everyone for your generous support! SCU means a lot to me and I know that your donations will make such a difference. SCU is a small charity that does not have an international funder, so they rely on donations like these. I appreciate every penny.
