Here’s how we got on – Team Concern Uganda 2012
And this is how we started….
In November 2012, I was asked to travel to Uganda for a Tri Adventure challenge for Concern, which included cycling 200km through the African bush, kayaking in the Nile and climbing a volcano!
As well as raising funds, we also wanted to raise awareness for the utterly wonderful work that Concern do in Uganda. They’ve been working there for over 20 years, helping almost 30,000 people last year alone.
Rising food prices there have led to violent protests, and Concern’s growing nutrition programmes are reducing disease and mortality in hundreds of thousands of children under five.
Concern’s work in training farmers has helped them increase their own productivity and boost their sales. Tom Arnold of Concern explains why this is so important in the video to the right.
So have a look around the website – I’ve added some new pages which have all the details. And be sure to check out my Uganda Blog to see how we got on.
