I am traveling to Uganda October 21-31!
Why I'm traveling to Uganda
While traveling to Uganda, I hope to bring about lasting change to youth and communities by being a positive contribution to an at-risk group. This trip is so much bigger than myself and what I personally hope to gain from this experience as it includes the lives of hundreds of children in need of running water and a healthy educational environment. It is my goal to not only help provide some of these resources by lending a helping hand, but to also teach the youth of Uganda about the importance of self-love and having love for others.
How you're helping me
I need your help to get to Uganda so I can start making an impact! This trip is coming up quickly and will not be possible without your contribution - no donation is too small. You're helping to fund this experience for myself and for the children whose lives we are going to be changing forever.
ABOUT the volunteer trip
Lend a Hand Uganda-USA (LAHU-USA), and its Founder, Harriet Zaffoni, are embarking on a volunteer trip to visit our "adopted" school in Kampala. This group includes me!! The MWERERWE CHURCH OF UGANDA PRIMARY SCHOOL is in desperate need of new facilities. We are raising money to build new latrines and bring running water to the school.
Over 3 million children are orphaned or living at risk in Uganda right now. Every child has the right to not only survive, but be given hope to thrive. There is an urgent need for orphans and vulnerable children in Uganda to obtain access to safe homes, education, healthcare, nutritious meals and economically stable communities. LAHU-USA is committed to empowering change in Uganda which will give families the tools, training and support to maintain themselves and provide an education to their children.
