Peter Maguire is fundraising for Uchira Children Fund. My aim is to raise funds to help the children of Uchira in Tanzania Africa.To do so Ive entered my first triathlon. Its on the 15th June in Stanhope Weardale. Ill be swimming 400 metres followed by a 22km cycle and 5km run.

Uchira children's fund is ran by an NGO called Village to Village that operates in and around Uchira. Village to Village is actually a one man team, so support and fund raising is always welcomed and needed to carry out the work in Uchira.

 Uchira childrens fund is there to provide access to education to children in the area who can't afford school fee's. In Tanzania, for all the government has done well to make primary education "in theory" free for families, secondary school is still not free. Food, uniforms, school fee's furniture levvies and many more items must be paid for by families. 

 Fee's for the year are simply out of reach for most families.

For £125 a year Uchira childrens fund can educate a child, including food, clothing and all school fees. 

The average person lives on, and earns, less than a $1 a day in rural Tanzania, this is barely enough for housing and the same meal of  maize and beans every day. 

Those children who can't make it to school have to provide for themselves, this means that without an education child labor is the remaining options for most children. 

All funds raised will go toward improving the children in Uchira's lives. 

Village to Village is a non profit operation, so 100% of funds go to where they are needed.

Thank you for you support :)
