Please help Windle to raise £48,000 for the education of refugee girls in Uganda



We’re very excited to let you know that Windle International has been selected to participate in the Big Give Christmas Challenge 2018, the UK’s largest match funding campaign. Donations to Windle during the period of 27th November to 4th December through the link below will be doubled.

Northern Uganda has received about one million South Sudanese refugees in the past three years, fleeing the conflict in South Sudan. Windle is the leading provider of educational access to this refugee community.

We plan to raise £48,000 to build a dormitory for 100 refugee girls, install solar lights in the school compounds, and build latrines for Rhino High School and Ofua Secondary Schools. These schools have been developed by Windle in partnership with UNHCR to provide study opportunities for refugees in North Uganda.

The beneficiaries of this project will be the refugee pupils who attend Rhino High School and Ofua Secondary School. Often the girls walk very long distances to school, and the likelihood of dropping out of school is high. The option of boarding will provide a secure learning environment and peace of mind to focus on their studies.
