OLCC Project #Uganda16

Our Lady’s Catholic College Sixth Form #Uganda16 Group has been busy fund-raising for their trip to Uganda in July of this year. The group will be visiting five schools in an under-developed rural region of SW Uganda.

They will be supporting their teachers in the delivery of Chemistry and English Teacher training courses for Ugandan Teachers and will also be holding their own ‘academic workshops’ teaching primary and secondary school students. They have already raised over £9000 towards the project and an Outreach Grant from the Analytical Chemistry Trust Fund has added £4000 to this total. The money will be used to buy much needed teaching resources for the schools.

The group would like to thank their numerous sponsors, including Lancaster University who have provided the funding for the team polo shirts and the Elizabeth and Richard Wilson Trust Fund. The group have more events planned, including a Concert for Uganda in school on Friday 6 May and a sponsored walk across Morecambe Bay on Sunday 12 June. If you would like to support the project, please contact school on 01524 66689.
