Since returning from Uganda last summer, we have raised over $18,000. That means we are just $5,000 away from our goal to implement hands-on sustainable agricultural trainings in Uganda this summer. In partnership with a local agricultural teacher, social workers, and our partner Children of Peace Uganda, we will be teaching 40 youth sustainable agriculture, nutrition, small business, and seed saving skills in a two-month-long workshop. These are all skills which these young adults would have learned from their parents growing up if it weren’t for the war, which left many parents dead and many children traumatized from their experiences as abductees.
Your support is critical in helping us reach our fundraising goal. We are excited to announce that donations to support the project are now tax deductible through Lewis & Clark College. You can donate online here or send a check to Lewis & Clark College with “projects for peace” in the memo line.
In addition, KareMeKuc and the Pamplin Society will host a silent auction fundraiser on April 18th at 6:30pm in Smith Hall at Lewis & Clark College. There will be live music, games, and a variety of goods and services up for bidding. Attendance and/or item donations would be greatly appreciated for this event.
A group of Lewis & Clark students will also be participating in small triathlon in April to benefit KareMeKuc, and we will happily accept any sponsorships for miles we run, swim, and bike. For any of these donations, you will be provided with charitable gift receipt.
Thank you very much for your generosity and continued support.
