  • Need

    Need

    Over 5 million people have a disability in Uganda - that is almost 1 in 6 people. Without the right support, training and the right wheelchair, these people are often left isolated from the rest of society.

    Solution

    We want to train parents and carers to look after disable people in Uganda and to understand the true cause of their disability. We also want to provide children with the right wheelchair and the right training to get them out of their homes and into the community.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    Raise £5,000 in order to sponsor a motorcycle ambulance and supply wheel chairs and training

    Activities

    » Local fundraising in Berkshire through events such as a charity quiz, cricket match and raffles

    Success will be raising £5,000 at the event to ensure that the motor cycle ambulance remains in action (£10 per day running cost)


  • Impact

    Impact

    Educating people within government and other local organisations to set up or improve their own wheelchair service on a sustainable basis.

    Risk

    Motivation halting their work in Uganda but the Foundation understands the charity is committed to this work in the long-term.

    Reporting

    We send out a quarterly newsletter to update donors outlining how the money has been used. We also try and coincide this with a visit to the charity from one of the Jane Metson Foundation's trustees.
