About the Ugandan Project

  • Primary/elementary schoolblogging buddies from around the world collaborated together to raise money to help purchase land adjacent to The ABC Divine Foundation Primary School in Mutundwe, Uganda, Africa. The land will be used as a play area for the school. Click here to read more about the land purchase.
  • Each class completed a one hour run/walk around their school or community at 10am on Friday 22nd October 2010.
  • The one hour walk signified the effort the Ugandan students make to get an education. Click here to read more about this from the Ugandan school director.
  • Students collected donations from their friends and families for completing the run/walk. The teachers in charge collected the donations and passed them on to the Ugandan school.

The Outcome

The fundraising and run/walk event was a huge success! Watch the video below to find out about 2KM and 2KJ’s run/walk.

The outcome of this project exceeded all expectations. Team Toa’s school (Shanghai American School) raised an enormous amount which took our total amount raised to over $20,000!

The land has been paid off at the ABC Divine Foundation School and we are currently working on a plan for what the rest of the money will be spent on exactly. Stay tuned!
