Hi I'm Laura!

I'm currently taking a gap year between graduating from Univeristy and entering a Secondary History PGCE. I have decided to spend some of this year volunteering as a Primary School Teacher in Uganda to develop my knowledge of education and to understand how it compares in other parts of the world. Furthermore it will also allow me experience of teaching as well as understanding what different cultures are like. Not only will I be able to travel and see parts of the world I never thought I could, but also help those are less fortunate than us!

I will be working for 6 weeks with the charity Volunteer Uganda in the South-West of the country. This is a region of Uganda where families live in real poverty and over 90% of the population live on less than 1 Dollar a day. By providing sustainable education with local schools and teachers, Volunteer Uganda is hoping to transform thousands of young lives.

I have been accepted to take part in a 6 week project with Volunteer Uganda where I will be teaching Maths, Science and English to a Primary School class in the Bwindi Region. Additionally I hope to get involved in after-school activities and Raising HIV awareness within the local community.

I am not only raising money to help me get out to Africa but also to be able to pay for resources that will help me teach the children. This will include arts and crafts supplies as well as pens, pencils, books, stickers and any other schooling supplies that we would all take for granted. Please help and support me to make a difference to a poverty stricken area of Uganda, any help will be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!
