Springbourne Homes is generously supporting a pioneering project to provide life-changing opportunities for African children and young people in one of the most deprived parts of Uganda.
Springbourne has teamed up with UK charity The Bumba Foundation which provides sustainable education opportunities for children, young people and communities in the East African nation.
Chairman Adrian Burr has also helped fund a promotional film “We Will Grow” which highlights the work of the Foundation and its aims and objectives.
Burr said: “I have been so impressed by the amazing work of the charity and the people who run it that I just had to become involved.
“Through Springbourne Homes we have helped fundraise for the Foundation and have sponsored the “We Will Grow” film and it is something we will continue to support as it grows and develops.”
The charity has already successfully raised the funds to build and run two community primary schools and two vocational skills centres in the impoverished Budaka District in Eastern Uganda, helping and supporting around 1,500 young people and community members each year.
Bumba Foundation Founder Martin Tilbury said: “As a small charity, it’s always challenging to find partners with the appropriate values, integrity and belief in making a real impact, but that’s what we have in Springbourne Homes and we are very grateful to Adrian and the team for all their support.
“We are delighted they were so generous in backing our latest initiative, our Agricultural Apprentice programme, which educates the community on self sustainable home farming to reduce poverty.
“Springbourne Homes stepped in again, helping fund our work with filmmaker Anna Keel to create a short documentary called ‘We Will Grow’ to showcase the impact of the project.
“We are all hoping it will be a great success and make a huge difference in the lives of the people living within these communities.”
