Story

Hello!

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. This is where i will be updating my progress on fund raising. This July, 2010, I embarked on a Mission trip to Rukangiri, Uganda. On this trip I helped to build a primary school for local children (many of whom are orphans) as well as other projects. To raise funds I held several events and sponsorship days for people to support me at. Donating is also made simple by using this fantastic website.

Going on this trip to Uganda was utterly amazing. I learnt so much about the world, about people,and also about myself. Experiencing a new culture was totally eye opening and I really felt I was amoung God's people.

The money I raised to go on my trip was undeniably a lot of money, but the experiece was worth every penny, and now I'm back in the UK I'm still fundraising for the excellent cause that is still so much in need. If you want to make a donation, then this website is the best place to do it!

I wrote a book about my experience which has publication in the pipelines, so keep your eye out for it! The heart of the book is to continue the fundraising for Africa through spreading the word about how amazing mission work is.

Thank you all for your amazing support,

Celia Jenkins
