A fingerprint makes its unique mark, leaves evidence, a personal seal, a signature of consent or approval. Fingerprints in Uganda makes its mark leaving evidence of caring by sharing in improving the lives of children in Jinja.
Past local events have included a Wedding Day Street Party, where our splendid neighbours decided that all profits should go to Fingerprints in Uganda. The money raised (over £400) was split three ways. Annet on the balcony who was too sick to work and couldn’t feed her children. Vicent’s education at Lord’s Mead Vocational School. The beginnings of furniture at Emmanuel House. THANK YOU SO MUCH to all our neighbours.
There was a Fun Fundraising Amble/Walk/Jog/Run at Redland Green Secondary School (kind permission of the Head Teacher and Governors), where enthusiastic children and staff from St John’s raised funds for mosquito nets for the pupils of Kyabirwa School. This project is on-going. Currently we have 268 nets paid for so far………that’s nearly a quarter of the target. BRILLIANT
Neighbour Katy promotes and sells Aloe Vera products. We had an A.V. evening at her house, where, bless her, all profits went to Emmanuel House, Fingerprints in Uganda – continuing the table and chairs project. Katy has suggested that if anyone would like to hold such a party, she would continue to give the profits to Emmanuel House. Isn’t she brilliant. (Photo to follow)
Kaarina, who had a stall at St John’s Summer Fair to raise money for nets, held an evening at Fiona’s (brilliant fundraiser and particularly fantastic at colour-ways with beadies) home where ladies learnt about Neal’s Yard Products, along with how we should apply them (don’t scrub and smear). Kaarina gave all the profit to Mosquito Nets for Kyabirwa and is soon to place her unique fingerprint on labels which will be attached to individual nets. THANK YOU KIND GIRL
If you would like to hold an event, beadie evening, social it would be lovely to hear from you and see how we could make this happen.
