Share your ideas on how to obtain funding to complete the girls dormitory, or organise a fundraising event

Status: Finished
Step:

Many students travel long distances to Notre Dame High School, so board at the school during term time.

They already have a dormitory for the younger girls, and have started building one for the older girls too.

The main construction work is done, but the inside of the building still needs to be finished by completing the floor, plastering the walls, and adding windows and doors.

The estimated cost for this is 3,400,000 Ugandan Shillings (approx 1100 euros/US$1500 at today’s exchange rates). A detailed budget is attached in Excel and PDF format.

We are asking neighbours to share their ideas on how the school can obtain the money to complete this work. For example:

* Provide details of Ugandan or international non-profit organisations, companies etc that they could approach for funding. Please include the website address and information on application procedures if possible

* Suggest local activities that they could organise to raise the money

And if you would like to run a fundraising event for the school yourself, we would be very happy to hear from you!

Hi Calvin

Welcome to Nabuur! The discussion here is related to Notre Dame High School in Masaka, Uganda. We cannot assist directly with your project, but you are of course very welcome to share your ideas on how we can raise the money to complete the dormitories.

Also have a look at some of the other Villages and Groups, via the links at the top of the screen.

Hi Christopher

There are many many schools around the world doing similar things to yours so finding support is not easy!

If anyone has ideas, and would like to try, please let us know.

Jennifer and I ara both involved with several Nabuur projects, so it is difficult for us to get involved with fundraising for all of them.

You may have more success through existing church contacts, especially if churches in your area have any links with others in Europe, US etc - have you asked any of them about this?

Hi Sam, are you still with us?
