Jonny and Leah are off to Kebale in Uganda on January 29th 2019 and we need your help. We are looking to raise £2000 to help contribute costs towards completing an orphanage centre (which we are building, renovating, painting, furnishing etc) The orphanage houses and schools 120 orphans.
The Abode Project was born from the essential pillars of the house music community, sourcing funds via private and public donations along with raising money through the medium of hosting large-scale club events/festivals around the world.
In November 2018, The Abode Project set out to Kabale to visit a newly purchased plot of land with 39 eager volunteers. Among the volunteers were tradesmen and women, DJs, Promoters, Nurses, Artists, Photographers and Videographers. Some friends, some total strangers.
What was achieved in that space of time is something that has had an internal and external impact on everybody it has touched. It is now home to The Abode Project School & Orphanage; a place of education, shelter, opportunity, security, humility and unity; a project that will continue to grow and expand into one of the poorest parts of an entire continent.
Several classrooms, dormitories, offices, a community hub, a music centre were built.
We aim to continue this mission with ourselves and 43 new volunteers taking on the the tasks still needing to complete the project and on January 29th we aim to document just that.
This is still the very beginning, but with the help of your compassion, affinity and funding we genuinely believe there is no limit to what we can achieve.
For the price of a pint of beer or some new mascara you can feed an entire family in Kabale for a week, for as little as £20 a month you can pay for a child's education and board at our school and orphanage. Thats the same price as a round of drinks.
Who says the poorest of the poor cant become scientists, doctors and more? Just because it hasn't been done before doesn't mean we cant be the generation to open the door...
The project was the brainchild of Abode however they have partnered with Last Night A DJ Saved My Life to maximise fundraising opportunities.
