Charlene’s Project, Big Festive Fry 2017

16 Dec 2017

Festive Fry posterYou’re warmly invited to the 7th Big Festive Fry for Charlene’s Project.

Monies raised will provide latrines and teacher accommodation in 3 schools in rural western Uganda. 

When: Saturday 16 December
Where: Dollingstown Church Halls

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.

This year’s Big Festive Fry will begin the fundraising to provide latrines and teacher accommodation.
