Recently I found a fantastic opportunity to go and volunteer in Uganda for 6 weeks and was overjoyed when I heard that I had received a place!
Uganda is one of the most economically deprived countries in the world, with 90% of the population living on less than $1 a year.
I will be volunteering in a district called Kanungu, where I will be working in a school teaching maths, English and science to children in the community.
Volunteer Uganda is the organisation I am volunteering with, who have helped to build and run four primary schools, a secondary school and a college. This achievement would be nothing without the volunteers that have been to Uganda in the past years and I'm delighted to be representing such a fantastic organisation.
I feel honoured to be selected to go to Uganda and teach the children within the community, and extremely look forward to experiencing a new culture that is so different to my own.
The overall cost of the trip will be £1750, however I must also book flights from England to Uganda which will cost around £600, and I am aiming to raise an extra £150 to go towards classroom desks and blackboards within a school.
I am organising a load of fundraising events such as a fun day and a coffee morning, and all donations towards my cause will be more than appreciated! Your donations will be going to a fantastic cause and a one-time opportunity to volunteer.
I would be extremely grateful for any donations made, whether it's £1 or £1000 every little helps!
Thank you for reading about my cause.
