In October & November we are asking our supporters to commit to walk/run/cycle a collective 6000 miles – the same distance from the UK to Uganda. We’d love for you, along with your friends, family, work, church, organisation and any other group you can think of, to join together to complete your exercise goals and fundraise for Abaana.
To help us raise £20,000 to fund these 3 projects (and keep fit!):
Covid–19: Abaana has so far been able to donate 50,000 meals to families in Uganda, but hunger is still a huge problem. £50 raised will feed a family for a month!
Build a Primary School: We believe that good, accessible education will release children from poverty. We want your help to build 7 classrooms, a headmaster’s office and a staff room!
Choir 3: Choir 3 is postponed until 2022 & training for the children will begin as soon as possible. We need your help to educate the choir children alongside getting them birth certificates/passports and visas so they can travel to the U.K.
The great part of 6000 miles is that you can do as many or as few miles as you’d like. Everybody has their own challenge levels and so we would suggest that you break your normal habits and challenge yourself to go that bit further to inspire people to donate to you. Set yourself a target of how many miles you want to do over a duration of your choice. It could be running a mile a day for a month or cycling 100 miles in just a few days.
