Fund a Farmer Challenge - help raise £175

If you have been inspired by the work of Youth Action Uganda, and are looking to take on a personal challenge this year, we would love for you to join our Fund a Farmer Challenge.  We are looking for 5 people to each raise £175 by taking on a personal challenge – see below for ideas and inspiration on how others have fundraised for Rope.  The monies raised will provide a farmer with all the support they need to put them on the path to healthy and economically successful lives!

Andy Hounsell and his team took on the Winter Nuts Challenge and raised close to £9,000 enabling two borewells to be built in eastern Uganda.

Lizzie's Challenge Event

Last year Lizzie Tinsley, pictured right with Samuel Eninu, challenged herself to swim the equivalent of the English Channel (21 miles) in 40 days, raising an incredible £1,275!

Lizzie says “Rope do amazing work with very little resources and I wanted to help them continue to pull families and communities out of poverty!”

Your challenge can be whatever you like and you can get started by setting up a fundraising page!  If you would like further information please get in touch through our contact page or call the office on 01494 433170.
