My lovely friend Dan (15) from Uganda needs help to continue with his education. For several reasons out of Dans power his education is now at risk. Dan is a very bright boy who I know personally. Please make his dreams come true

Hello, so as everyone is bored to death of hearing about my time in Uganda I am going to try and keep this short and sweet. 

Whilst I was in Uganda I lived next door to a wonderful family who basically adopted me and my friend Kirsty. They helped us with everything, to them what was normal was our abnormal. We had to learn everything and where completely back to basics.

Whilst living in Namunglawe I learnt a lot about there culture. I also realised how much an education can mean to somebody. I am speaking on behalf of Parklands leavers 09 and I know that day in day out we would mess around and some were more or less throwing away there time in school. This also didn't help the people who wanted to learn. In Uganda I never saw a child miss behave in a lesson. It was to precious to them they didn't dare do anything to spoil it. 

Education means a job and being able to support themselves as they age and there family's they will have. This isn't only going to help Dan. Dan could go on to be a doctor and save lives. Together we could help save 100s of people just by supporting one child's dreams. 

Everyone should have have the right to an aducation and be able to make the most out of life. Just because Dan lives in Uganda shouldn't make him any different.

Dans school fees for this year are £150 per term. There are three terms a year adding up to £450. This excludes uniform etc. 

Dans mother and father separated (that in its self can make his life harder as it isn't very common) he lives with his father now who already works very long and physically demanding hours for very little money. 

Dan hasn't asked for this but it will help me sleep better at night. 

lets do a good deed together
