August Objective

In 5 weeks, I will be heading back to Uganda for the fourth time. I'm eagerly counting down the days to return back to a country I fell in love with 4 years ago. 

The Bernie Project launched just 2.5 weeks ago and already the support has been tremendous and for that I am so thankful!

While I'm in Uganda The Bernie Project has three main objectives:

  • Learn how The Bernie Project can improve the nutritional quality of the current feeding program at the Wakiso School of Hope. I will spend time with the administrators of WSH to hear their thoughts and ideas, along with visiting schools that have a nutritional feeding program in place and learning about their best practices.
    • Feed One Child $25.00/month
  • Deliver 250 hygiene kits that include the following: soap, hanky, toothbrush, toothpaste and vaseline to the students of WSH 
    • Hygiene kits cost $8.00/each 
  • Start the research process for a sustainable farming program in 2014. 

We have raised $3,500 since we launched on June 22nd and we have set a goal to raise an additional $7,000 before I depart on August 14th. 

We would love your support!
