Team Gaenor needs your support to ensure refugees fleeing persecution, conflict and oppression can access Pan African Development Education And Advocacy Programme services, which supports and empowers them to rebuild their lives in Uganda.
More refugees entered Uganda last year than crossed the Mediterranean: it is one of the world’s fastest growing refugee crises. 4,500 are arriving every day from Southern Sudan, joining those from neighbouring Somalia, Congo, Burundi, Eritrea and Ethiopia. Against this backdrop, and with continuing cuts to funding for refugee services in Uganda, PADEAP Uganda is more important than ever. We continue to offer training, legal advice, psycho social support. We pioneered and run the only ‘refugee accelerated learning classroom’ in Kampala, where refugee children can catch up on lost education and then attend local Ugandan primary schools.
So on 10th July our Trustee Gaenor Bruce and friends including Amanda Weston, Jane Coker, Zia Ullah, fellow trustee Tonia Mihill and Director Christine Tominke Olaniyan will be setting off to complete the Manchester to London Pathway Challenge. The walk will finish 14 days and 250 miles later. Please give whatever you can to support Gaenor and the team as they go through fields, streets, plasters and walking boots!
