If you are following us on social media then you will be well aware of how much impact your donations can have on these children's lives.
All donations made to this page will go into the continuation of our work out there. Funds will be spent where it is most needed in the poorest communities of Kabale.
I am lucky enough in life to have so many friends and I hope you will all help support this cause, whether you donate 50p or £100 every penny counts. It is common place for mothers to go to work in mines and farms for less than £1 a day in Uganda. Every donation and share of this page will have a huge impact! ✊
