We held our first training session this week for the brave volunteers that want to be a part of our highly anticipated event later this year. If you’re interested in joining us, future sessions are Tuesdays, 20:30 at The Boxing Clinic in Angel. Let us know if you are interested (running 5km beforehand ala Louise is optional…..)
Despite some delays along the way as a result of the rainy season we are happy to report that the first phase of Universal Chance’s work at Buhinga School is complete. Two of our trustees (Mpuuga and Ian) visited the school over Xmas and met with both our project manager and the school headmaster.
The headmaster is very happy with the renovations which have provided the girls with a brand new aqua privy toilet, a complete refit of an unused toilet block and extensive repair and renovation to the classroom block most in need. A massive thank you to all who have made what we have achieved so far possible – the children will now be back in school and learning in a safer, more sanitary environment as a direct result of your support and generosity. Stay tuned for news of our next event soon!

Think it’s been getting a bit chilly in the past week or so? Spare a thought for Ben and Charlie Wharfe who will be taking on The Polar Circle Marathon this coming weekend in support of Universal Chance.
Referred to as “the coolest marathon on earth” it takes place in Greenland in temperatures as low as -25ºC. The endless ice and snow of this vast country make up the backdrop of this unusual race, in which runners pass glacier tongues, moraine landscapes and soundless, arctic desert.
Read their individual stories on the JustGiving – Ben’s Page and Charlie’s Page. Both are closing in on their fundraising target – it would be great if you took 2 minutes to take them closer, and help us build some brighter futures.
We are delighted to bring you an update from Uganda on the work taking place at Buhinga School as a result of your contributions. Getting underway took longer than we had anticipated, but we were keen to work directly with local contractors to make sure all of our funds were going back into the community and we obviously had to schedule around the school timetable to ensure the children’s studies were not disrupted.
The old toilet block pre-demolition…..
…and the new foundations being laid for the replacement block
Construction remains on target for completion on the 15th September so we hope to bring you further updates then – please continue to spread the word about Universal Chance so we can carry on building brighter futures.
