Story

In 2012, an ex-ignite introduced us to Empower a Child; a wonderful charity that supports children in Uganda, giving them opportunities through education.

By 2013, having raised funds through a variety of initiatives, 30 ignites were on their way to Zirobwe. Whilst there, they were introduced to an inspirational headmaster, Mr. Nickolas Kintu who ran a street school that educated 90 impoverished and orphaned children for free.

Sadly in 2015, the school was badly damaged by flooding and was threatened with closure. The ignites quickly set to raising funds to save the school and prevent its pupils from returning to a life on the streets. This quick fix was a success, but now we need to look at the long-term. 

We are fundraising to build a new boarding school for 200 children outside Kampala. This school will ensure that children get the education and support they deserve, now and in the future.

Thank you so much for your generosity. It means the world to us and the children it will support.
