As you guys are probably aware I am giving up my summer holidays this year to travel to Uganda to become a volunteer teacher for 6 weeks! My aim is to raise £400 in donations towards the cost of my trip to Uganda. I decided to go volunteer through the charity 'Volunteer Uganda'. They work with some of the most economically deprived children in the world. VU is a unique non profit organisation dedicated to tackling poverty in the rural Bwindi region of Uganda through sustainable education and enterprise development. For those of you who do not know... over half of the population are under the age of 14 with over 60% of children being malnourished. Up to 50% of people are illiterate and the fertility rate is over 8 children/ woman. 90% of the population live on less that 1 US dollar each day and most people survive by subsistence farming. Education is the only way to break the vicious cycle of poverty. HIV/AIDS and unemployment are special challenges and school dropouts are most vulnerable. Even the smallest donation of £1 will help! They and I will remain forever grateful!! Thanks for taking the time to read this. If you would like more information on VU and all the wonderful things they do visit their website http://volunteeruganda.org/ or of course ask me. Thank you and lots of love, Laura xxx
