As I look back over previous BIG FESTIVE FRY events I am so encouraged by what has been achieved through the support of folk at the Fry:
2011 Supported development at Hidden Treasure Primary School , Uganda
2012 Provided borehole and clean water at Kahara Primary School, Uganda
2013 Built Community Hall at Kahara Primary School, Uganda
2014 Built teacher accommodation and supported development at Kirwala Primary School, Uganda
2015 Supported refurbishment and new classrooms in Vado Ancho and Las Escaleras Primary Schools in Guatemala
2016 Helped fund school and community health programmes in Kahara and Kirwala Primary Schools, Uganda
Charlene’s Project hopes to support 3 neighbouring primary schools close to the Kahara and Kirwala Primary Schools we already support in rural western Uganda. These 3 schools need similar development to what we are helping provide in Kahara and Kirwala schools. For example, Nyinga Primary has over 1,000 pupils with 320 pupils in P1 and only 1 permanent P1 teacher. Yet there are only 44 pupils in P7 as older children are taken out of school to help their parents work the land and early marriage for girls is common. There are 2 tables in the entire school and all the resources for the whole school are kept in one small cupboard in the headmaster’s office.
Charlene’s Project has committed to provide latrines and teacher accommodation as our first step in helping develop these 3 schools.
This year’s BIG FESTIVE FRY will begin the fundraising to provide latrines and teacher accommodation.
PLEASE HELP US CREATE BETTER FUTURES FOR THESE CHILDREN.
Look forward to seeing you at the BIG FESTIVE FRY on Saturday 16th December.
