Great Lakes High School, Uganda
Securing the Future
This is the fundraising page for the 2019 Highgate School & LAE Tottenham Sponsored Walk which raises funds to support Great Lakes High School.
The school is in a very deprived area of rural Uganda where there is a great need for a good quality secondary school. The school was built from scratch in 2007 - the site was just an empty field - and is now a thriving establishment providing a science based education for 300 girls and boys from year 7 through to 'A' Levels.
Funds from the walk are vital to support the school and secure its future.
We are determined to continue our vital support to our sibling school in Kirima and this year, we hope to raise at least £80,000 to improve the teaching and learning experience in the school and secure its long-term sustainability:
a. Improvements to the children's nutrition (GLHS students currently eat posho and beans twice a day)
b. Improved science provision through full time teachers and replenished laboratory supplies
c. A library and information technology resource to develop a love of reading and research
d. A fund dedicated to repair, renovation and refurbishment of the existing buildings
When making donations, select the name of the UK charity "Kirima Ltd" which ensures that the funds are properly used in Uganda. 100% of your donation will be spent on the High School, with no admin costs.

The Co-operative Bank are proud to be the main sponsorship partner of the Wonderful Organisation supporting charities to make a difference by ensuring 100% of donations go directly to doing good. Learn more about the Bank’s values and ethics.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
