Story

The Amazing Uganda Challenge

So, what is it we are we doing?

This is a truly amazing fundraising event! We are aiming to help a school in need of building support (new roof) which is based in the North East of Uganda, Africa. A new roof on the school which will benefit all the children of the village and surrounding area.

Currently approximately only half the children are attending the school as it not a safe environment. Can you imagine going to primary school and there was no roof? In their extreme heat and during the rain season; it is what we say 'it's pouring down'. How can you learn or be taught like this?

The challenge is a not-for-profit charity event.

All individuals involved in this challenge met 2008 during Liverpool's year of Capital of Culture. Supported by family, friends and their local communities.

Each one is a volunteer, giving up their free time, good will with a mix of their charitable nature to help those who are less fortunate.

This will be a once in a lifetime experience for many people from the United Kingdom and Uganda.

Despite health and social issues which significantly affect rural poverty in Uganda, you will be pleasantly surprised as to how safe Uganda is. Uganda is one of the safest, stable and secure countries in Africa. ... Kampala is one of the safest capitals in Africa and over 99% of visitors come and leave Uganda without an incident. (27 Nov 2017)

Funding Goal:

To complete this epic challenge, we have three goals:

1. Raise funds to meet our researched budget of a £12,000 target to complete the whole task.

2. From the budget purchase the building materials, possible local labour, transportation on the 11-hour journey from the capital Kampala.
