Dear friends, as you read in my recent birthday post, after having a wonderful garden celebration with my family and friends, I was also thrilled to be able to declare my 70th birthday appeal to build latrines for Good Luck Junior School in Uganda, a 💯% success. The full £700 was raised!
Amazingly, donations continued to arrive in the days that followed and I am extremely excited to report that,
in fact, I have now received double what I was hoping for! I am so, so grateful to everyone who has been so kind and generous. THANK YOU 😊!
In practical terms this means that not only can we build the latrines, buy the boar for the lonely sow 🤣 and a few desks so the children have somewhere comfortable to sit to have their lessons, but also we are able to finance the building of another block of three classrooms like the one Poynton Rotary Club donated last year! I can hardly believe it and can’t wait to tell my project manager Innocent, so he can give the good news to the head teacher Ibrahim and the teachers, who have been trying to do their job in such difficult circumstances, and having more space for the children will make such a big difference.
Dear friends, it seems that every time I ask for assistance with a project in Uganda, enough of you come up with the money I need to finance it! You are WONDERFUL!
This support just inspires me to go on doing what I’ve been doing for almost 20 years, giving people there a little bit of much needed help, enjoying my involvement and loving my annual visits!Thank you so much! I can’t wait to get back to Uganda!
I’ll be back soon to give you a progress report!🤗
(To those of you who are new to my involvement in Uganda I want to mention that my trips to Uganda are completely self-financed. Every penny you donate goes to the projects.)
