Join our Karamojong Clan!

Waffle has a challenge ahead:  the tribal elders claim me as theirs, so he must provide a "brideprice" in order for them to consent to the marriage!  This means, paying a dowry of cows, goats, sheep and turkeys!  All of his "clansmates" are supposed to help him raise the dowry, so if anyone can help, that would be great.  This will be our bridal registry (we don't really need toaster ovens or fancy china!)  Make a donation if you would like to join the clan and help with the brideprice!  He needs about 50 cows, 40 shoats and 50 turkeys.

     Questions about your donation?  Email Waffle at [email redacted].

We are holding the wedding deep in the Peace Villages, Karamoja, NE Uganda.  The ceremonies will be held over a 3 day period in the bush, where there is no electricity or running water, and we will be camping in tents.  The dates are 18th to 20th of January, 2013.  Information is on my Facebook page.  You can see it by joining the "Wedding Group" (

The deadline for donations is November 15th so that we have time to purchase animals before the wedding.
