Community Fundraising

Fundraising for UYWEFA!
Most of our income comes from amazing people like you, and we really couldn’t make such a life-changing difference in Uganda without your help and support.

Why not organise your own event? Don’t worry – we can help you all the way!  Try to emails on jakeblanco@me.com. for  our A-Z Fundraising Ideas. Here are some of our favorites!

  • Africantastic!: Why not add a bit of sunshine to those cold winter nights and hold an Africantastic Party?
  • High Tea at Three for Uganda: Get together with friends for a special tea

Create Your Own Online Fundraising Page

It’s quick, simple and free! Anyone in the world can set up a fundraising page, and anyone in the world can donate. So whether it’s a marathon, bike ride, or any other sort of challenge, you can raise money easily for UYWEFA.

Group Fundraising

All UYWEFA’s work is based in and around the communities in Uganda , so community groups are extremely important to the success of our work both in Uganda , the UK, and the USA.

If you belong to a community group, why not support a Uganda  community group and make a real difference?

RAG

Why not lend your time to raise as much money as possible for UYWEFA whilst having as much fun as you can through street collections, night-time events and curious fancy dress themes?! Volunteering to help RUYWEFA  is a great way to enhance your CV as it develops important employable skills, and indicates time management and concern for others.

Duke of Edinburgh Award (D of E)

Volunteering is all about making a difference to other people’s lives. Getting off your sofa and taking time out to change things for the better can be great fun.

Scouts and Guides

By supporting UYWEFA , you can work towards badges and awards and have fun doing it!

Churches

Religion plays a very important part in Ugandan  culture with around 80% of the population being Christian.

If your church is interested in supporting our work, why not consider supporting us this Harvest or Christmas time? You can do this either by making UYWEFA  recipients of a collection, or why not set a fundraising target to raise via our Gift Catalogue?

If your church is interested in finding out more about our work, then why not book a member of the UYWEFA Team to come and give a talk at one of your services or other occasions. They can tell you more about how we work, who we work with, and how you can help. We are passionate about what we do and are happy to share this enthusiasm with you. Contact the UYWEFA  team on  jakeblanco@me.com.

UYWEFA depends on the support of volunteers to continue its mission of supporting the community of Kazo. If you are interested in becoming a part of the UYWEFA team look at our current opportunities here.

For those unable to give time to support our efforts, UYWEFA gratefully welcomes financial support in the form of one-off donations, sponsorship, and fundraising.
