UGANDA - June '08



To read Duncan's report from the Uganda project, click here.

What a huge success this project was. The Great Football Giveaway's team of volunteers have just returned from Uganda, where they managed to hand-deliver over 3,000 footballs and netballs direct to children across rural areas. 

The project was brilliant in so many ways, with the team traveling over 5,000km into rural areas, visiting hundreds of schools, orphan centres, community projects, IDP (refugee) Camps, and so the list continues. So many smiling faces.

Massive thank you to all those involved in making this project happen.
