Lindsey's Aid Work in Uganda
Organized by: Lindsey Gamble
I am traveling to Uganda in January, where I will be stationed with the amazing organization, Come Let's Dance- www.comeletsdance.org.
This incredible organization has so many wonderful projects that are helping out so many people. They started out in 2006 with a school and children's home. They now also have a medical clinic with mobile unit, a Thread of Life sewing and craft shop (Helping women to create products that they can sell to a larger international community, giving them an opportunity to make money and support themselves without having to turn to prostitution, as well as educating them), a slum empowerment basecamp where women and children can live in safety, and a farm and vocational school- which hopes to expand making them entirely self-sufficient one day.
I have agreed to work where ever I can be of the most help with this group, and hope to make a difference while I am there throughout the coming year. To do this though, I need help to pay my way- food, shelter, and getting there! Each volunteer is additionally asked to raise money for the group itself. This is where YOU come in!
Please help this wonderful group to thrive, and help me to make this dream of aid work a reality. Even if it's just a dollar, every penny counts!
