Singing Gorilla Projects - Miles Better
Singing Gorilla Projects (SGP) funds and manages community based projects in remote parts of Uganda that improve the welfare of communities and enriches the lives of individuals. SGP builds and manages health facilities, builds schools and sponsors children to continue their schooling, and funds water delivery programs with water tanks, water filters and water pumping projects. We work closely with the local communities who co-ordinate the work, mobilise the community to get involved and provide leadership and decision making.
We have four main types of projects: Healthcare, Education, Community and Creative. These include health facilities, building schools, sponsoring children to continue schooling and funding water delivery programs with water tanks, water filters and water pumping projects. One of our current key initiative is the Empower Her project, which has been set up to help girls aged 15-20 who have had their education interrupted by pregnancy, by providing them with skills to enable them to earn money to fully sustain themselves.
Singing Gorilla Projects are taking part in the Miles Better initiative with Wonderful, who are putting together a combined initiative with multiple charities to cover 100,000 miles to raise £100,000 for charities in 31 days. Throughout May, fundraisers will be able to set a distance goal and post every mile to the SGP Miles Better page. We've integrated with Strava - so all participants can easily record and sync walks, runs, bike rides, or any other distance-based activity. Distance updates can be entered manually too.
