Story

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page

Rose charities 

In 2014 I volunteered at a local school in Uganda, funded by Rose charities. The kids here were inspiring: without being affected by the poverty and dejection they were living in, they always seemed positive, hopeful and encouraged by the life around them.

My time at this school was a real eye opener for me. I
realised that possessions are not what will make one happy, but instead how we appreciate them. I learnt the importance of: sharing and reaching out to others less fortunate than you: to make a difference no matter how small, not expecting anything back in return.

I have decided to fundraise for Rose Charities, so we can make a contribution to keeping 45 ugandan children in school, smiling and giving them the opportunity to follow their dreams, just like the rest of us.
