Hello! We are Maisie and Jack from Lyme Regis, Devon and have set up this fundraising campaign in support of our upcoming trip away to East Africa. We are volunteering to travel to a remote village in rural UGANDA to help build dormitories for teenage students who have completed Primary School but who cannot afford the fees for Senior School.
The charity we are supporting (Uganda lodge, set up and run for the last 17 years by my nanny, Ann McCarthy) assists these youngsters in learning basic trades such as Tailoring, Hairdressing and Catering whilst also teaching them how to start up their own business to better their futures.
The exterior of the building is completed but the bedrooms need plastering, showers and toilets fitted and then painting throughout. Our fundraising will help to purchase the necessary sand, cement, plumbing fittings and paint as well as enabling the charity to pay the local builders that myself and jack will be working alongside.
This is a very exciting and once in a lifetime opportunity for us so please help us and donate all you can!
Thank you :)
