Fund Raising Ideas for Gerry’s Uganda Projects

Gerry’s Uganda Projects

Alternative Gifts – a gift that makes a difference!

Wondering what to buy your friends and relatives for their birthday, anniversary or for Christmas?

My ongoing project to provide as many people in the area I work in with a mosquito net so that they will be protected from the Malarial mosquito is vitally important, in fact lifesaving, as more people particularly the very young and elderly, die of Malaria than any other disease in Uganda. So please if you would like to sponsor one or more nets from yourself or on behalf of your friends or relatives I would be so grateful as will the recipients of your gift? Each net costs £5.

OR help Brain Trust Nursery and Primary School to provide a good education for the four hundred children who attend the school by doing one or more of the following:

1 – Sponsor a desk for £20 so that every child at can sit comfortably in their lessons just like our children do, and have your name painted on it.

2 – Sponsor a teaching chart or several books for £5.

For sample photos of the items above please scroll down to the end of this script.

In exchange for your sponsorship you will receive a personalised photo of your sponsored net/s being delivered. Or a photo of your named desk, books or teaching charts with children at the school, when I am next out in Uganda or as soon as I can arrange it. Please email me at

with your name OR the name of the person you are purchasing this gift on behalf of and whose name you would like in the photo or painted on the desk. Also if you wish any greeting such as ‘Happy Birthday’ to be added.

Please see donation page for details of payment – cash, cheque or bank transfer

Thank you for your support
