In 2007 a man from Uganda came to Appalachian State University. He spoke to a social work class and here, in 2012, that same teacher is in the proccess of planning her 4th trip to Uganda and is still working with the nonprofit organization, YOFAFO, that that man worked for.
The particular village we work with is called Shitola. On the second trip, that teacher took me, her oldest daughter at 11 with her and that trip we built a house for the founder of the nonprofit's Aunt, who's house fell down during the rainy season. From the ground we constructed a brick house which she still lives in.
The 3rd trip I could not go on because of the lack of funds but this year I'm going and I have a project in mind. For my Girl Scout Gold Award I'm going to pay to construct a 6th grade school building and provide textbooks for the class.
How will donating here help?
I will use the points to purchase dA products like bags, shirts and hoodies to put up for sale for a BIG silent auction we'll be holding for fundraising.
