Dear Friend of GirlBe,
For the last decade, GirlBe acquired one fund that facilitated the purchase of our ten acre ranch in Kayunga district where we are now based.
It has been a real challenge due to the limited resources to make things happen to educate, heal and train girls and young women from low income communities into self mastered individuals of society.
For the most part, we have survived through informal online fundraisers, personal and in kind support from friends and family.
However, since we started our school construction a couple of years ago, we became keen on how to run our activities more effectively and consistently.
Therefore, we started a sustainability project. This is a social business aimed at facilitating our school activities in the long term.
We fortunately acquired a property on a 50 by 50 feet plot in the capital Kampala that we renovated and are now set to establish it as a Backpackers for tourists visiting Uganda. This Backpacker will operate completely as a social business whose profits will be used to facilitate the school activities like construction and administration.
At the moment, our school is closed due to a leaking roof, lack of a student toilet and kitchen. If only our Backpackers was established, we would easily facilitate our school immediately and that would keep it open.
However, It is unfurnished and we are requesting for your support for furniture and basic beginning operations support in order to open our back packers this October.
We are so limited in resources even though we are working around the clock to reopen as soon as possible. Kindly donate any amount by following the link below.
Rewards include free accommodation when we open our backpackers. Hopefully soon 😊.
WE ARE TOTALLY COUNTING ON YOU. THANK YOU 🙏🏾
