In Uganda, urgent improvements are needed in water sanitation, schools and protection of wildlife. In August 2014, with your help, I will travel to Nakitoma with Camps International for four weeks to volunteer on projects to address these issues.
My name is Zoe and I am currently studying for my a-levels. I am working with and organisation called Camps International which helps students to raise enough money to go on a life-changing expedition to Africa for four weeks and participate in charitable work whilst there.

Here are a few examples of how volunteers have already made a difference:
- Built and improved 30 schools
- Constructed almost 200,000 litres of water storage for people and wildlife
- Built 31 community and school ablution blocks to improve sanitation and reduce disease
- Built 8 new school kitchen and dining facilities for school children
- Planted over 650,000 trees
- Removed over 14 tonnes of marina refuse from coastlines
- Treated over 5,000 livestock to improve food security for farmers
- Introduced a school-feeding programme resulting in 800 young children receiving proper meals
- Provided sports facilities for 6,500 people in rural areas of Kenya and Borneo
- Protected over 130,000 acres of wildlife habitat

The camp I am hoping to work at is where the Ziwa Rhino sanctuary is located - the only safe haven for White Rhino. This is a unique element to my expedition as I will also be helping out there.

In order to achieve this goal, I am relying on friends, family and any other generous member of the public to donate to this cause as my fundraising events alone are unlikely to fund the entire trip!

Please share this page and tell you friends and family!

Any donation of any size will be hugely appreciated!
