My name is Ida.

I am the founder of  Let Them Help Themselves http://www.lethemhelpthemselves.org  a community regeneration charity working to alleviate poverty in rural communities in SW Uganda. 33754534_1546547271807517_r.jpeg
In the course of my work, I came across Perfect and Princess. They were three years old and their father had died a year and half earlier. I have  had the pleasure of watching them grow into confident teenagers. 

They had four older siblings and had no hope of going to school because their mother could not afford to send them.  

My friends and I stepped in but by year three, I was on my own and continued to pay the girls' fees. The girls are 12 years now and  in their last year of primary school.  

I have  contemplated  ending the sponsorship when the girls finish their primary school because the fees for six years of secondary school  would stretch me financially.  

On refection, this would be a terrible outcome for the girls.  They would leave school without the necessary skills to secure their future. Besides, these girls are academically gifted. It would be a shame if they were unable to realise their academic potential. 

Therefore, as a goal for  2019, I have committed to fundraise  six years worth of school fees for these beautiful and talented  girls.  This would see the girls continue their secondary school education for six years or until they complete their A'levels. The money raised will cover  school fees, clothing, food,  healthcare and extra curricular activities.

How it Works
  1. You are donating to PayPal Giving Fund UK, a registered charity (No. 1110538), which will email you a receipt for your donation and claim Gift Aid where eligible.
  2. GoFundMe’s platform is free. The charity will typically receive the funds from PayPal Giving Fund within 15-45 days of your donation if the charity has enrolled (or 90 days if the charity has not yet enrolled). Unlike other platforms, 100% of any Gift Aid will go to the charity as well.
* In very limited cases, a recommended charity may cease to meet PayPal Giving Fund's legal or other eligibility requirements. In such cases, PayPal Giving Fund will reassign the funds to a similar charity, and (wherever possible) seek a new recommendation from donors.
