Personal message from Kimberlee Clarke:
Thanks for visiting my fundraising page! I am excited about the opportunity to volunteer in Uganda. Your support, generosity and donation are very much appreciated. I will be part of a team of 10 international graduate students volunteering in Kampala, Uganda with a local NGO working on a capacity building project in July 2009. The local NGO runs a holistic HIV/AIDS outreach and treatment initiative involving a wide range of activities, including a savings and loans co-op, a medical clinic, a vocational training centre, a youth centre and more.
For this project, we will be working with the staff and management team of the vocational training centre, which provides training to HIV clients and other members of the community in trades such as catering, carpentry, sewing and so forth. Over the next 5 years, the local NGO would like to see the vocational training centre become a self-sustaining enterprise and no longer rely on the funding from the core organisation to maintain the centre and its activities. The aim of the project will therefore be to work with the vocational centre staff to see how they can make this vision come to fruition.
Donation through Justgiving is quick, easy and totally secure. It's also the most efficient way to sponsor us: The Great Generation gets your money faster and, if you are a UK taxpayer, an extra 28% in tax will be added to your gift at no cost to you.
