My story

[p]Our Lady's Catholic College have been supporting schools and communities in Uganda for over 12 years. A part of our support is to provide Teacher Training courses in chemistry for secondary school teachers. Most schools in Uganda are severely under-resourced to provide practical science teaching and teachers have little access to effective training. In 2018, with the help of the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), we provided courses for approximately 50 schools in four different districts of Uganda. We were able to donate £10,000 worth of science equipment to the schools who attended the courses. This year, the RSC has awarded our new Chemistry Teacher, Mr Lewis Bird, an Outreach Scholarship to assist in teacher training courses in Uganda in July 2020. The RSC has awarded us a £4£ fund-matching of up to £3000 to provide resources for the schools who attend these courses. Our current Uganda Action Group are already busy raising money to obtain the £3000 required and we hope that you might be able to support us as well. [/p]

Our four boys all attended Our Lady's Catholic College but did not get the opportunity to take part in such a worthwhile project. A worthwhile cause but also giving young people a chance to learn about and help their global family.Thank you.
