We are students currently enrolled in Pearson College UWC. As part of our curriculum, we are encouraged to participate in activities that allow us to work with communities.
One of such activities is Kumbuka Universal Learning Experiences (KULE). KULE is a non-profit organisation founded by Geoffrey Tindyebwa that works with a community in Murang'a (Nairobi, Kenya). During the late 70s under the rule of Idi Amin, Geoffrey fled to Kenya where he was taken in by a family in the Mukangu community. As a product of his gratefulness, he created KULE with the aim of giving back to the community.
Currently, KULE is registered under the British Columbia’s Society’s Act as Number S-56519, and in Kenya as an NGO, Number 161146.
As part of the KULE program, students are invited to Kenya and Uganda over the summer (in July) to help in creating spaces for the community. So far Pearson students have collaborated with other international students to build a library, six permanent houses for residents, a water tank for an orphanage among other projects.
This summer, KULE will be returning to Kenya, and starting new projects in Uganda after two years of being unable to. However, to be able to do that we require support from donors. We are sending this email to you as we believe that our values, and yours align. If you are able to support us, you can make donations through the website, or GoFundMe.
Using the funds raised on this platform and others last year, KULE managed to purchase steel, iron sheets, and tools to construct a bus shelter, latrine, and develop a school and pay the wages for workers who assisted the team.
