This challenge will support two key projects in Uganda through two of our partner charities.
On behalf of Soft Power Education we are fundraising USD20,000 to completely renovate seven classrooms at Nkondo Primary School where 605 pupils attend school. This renovation will ensure that the children are learning in safe and inspiring classrooms.
For Kisoro Children’s Foundation we are aiming to raise USD23,000 to purchase a playground, playing field, football pitch and netball court, which will be used by the 267 students and by many more children in the local community.
