Lara's Uganda Campaign 2020
My name is Lara Townsend, I am 17 and attend LaSwap Sixth Form in London.
This July 20 students including myself will take part in a community development project in Jinja, Uganda for two weeks. It will be a community based project, where we will be working alongside the charity 'The Great Generation'.
This amazing opportunity is aimed at helping to develop a sustainable economy and promote education in a rural village.We will undertake 6-8 mini projects over these two weeks, including:
-working with St Francis Healthcare (local hospital)-donating hundreds of books, clothes and shoes to the local school-running courses on making sustainable and reusable period products for young girls-teaching english in local schools and setting up sporting activities for children-building a new library-repairing and installing new water pumps-promote and get involved with more efficient farming methods-buy goats for the most disadvantaged locals and help promote sustainable wealth-and much more
Your donation will directly contribute to all of this.
LaSwap Sixth Form and 'The Wonderful Generation' have been running this project for multiple years now, so have been able to assess what can actually make a difference in communities in a country where life expectancy is under 60, and almost half of the population live on less than $1 a day.
Thank you for your kind donations, please help me reach my goal.
