Story

Over Easter, we spent 10 days in Uganda with the charity Kids Club Kampala, of which Pete is a trustee. We saw the amazing work the charity does in changing the lives of children and families in the slum communities across Kampala. One of the projects that particularly stood out to us was the charity's cow project. A few years ago the charity bought a women's group a Jersey cow. The aim of the project was to give the women a sustainable income that they could use to provide for their family. A few years down the line, we were privileged enough to see the difference that the project has made. The original cow has since had calves and each of the ladies in the group now has her own cow. The money the women have generated from selling cows milk has enabled them to provide for their children and has allowed them to pay for their children to go to school. Inspired by what we saw, we are looking to raise £1,200 so that Kids club Kampala can buy a cow for a different women's group!
