The Uganda School Project
African-themed carnival Fundraiser!
Support the TUSP work in Uganda and enjoy an amazing evening packed full of African culture.
To celebrate the charity’s achievements in 2016, and to raise awareness and donations for 2017's endeavours, The Uganda School Project will be hosting an African-themed carnival Fundraiser!
In 2016, The Uganda School Project began supporting Bumakenya Primary School in the beautiful Manafwa region, in Eastern Uganda. This year we will expand our work to establish a sign language unit at the school, a micro finance program and a mobile cataract surgery unit in order to help to develop the economic, health an social structures in the area.
The fundraiser will be held on the 4th of March between 5pm and 11pm at Mother London in Shoreditch. The evening will be filled with African culture and food, as well as with talks from some inspirational speakers. The Uganda School Project team will discuss the achievements of 2016 and outline the important plans for 2017.
There will be mouth-watering Ugandan snacks out for you to help yourself to, along with some delicious punch on arrival. For those who wish there will be a cash bar serving beers, wine and G&T’s, all for an extremely affordable £3.
We can promise some fantastic Ghanaian drumming and the unmissable live afrobeats music from Kokoroko’s 7-piece band. The evening will be closed off by some African tunes from our resident DJs. All of this for only a £20 ticket. This money goes directly to The Uganda School Project.
Founder Harry Bucknell says: “This year we wanted to throw an event that isn’t just a compulsory invite for the friends and family of the charity, but an interesting and engaging evening, full of African influence. We want people to see the direct impact the money raised has had on the areas, and the exciting projects we have lined up for 2017. These include a mobile cataract surgery, where the operating theatre is a converted double-decker London bus, as well as classroom construction and the introduction of micro-finance initiatives – which in our opinion is the best way to help the community to help themselves out of poverty”.
