A Black Friday Like No Other! Prices Are Going Up This Weekend

This weekend, we are reshaping Black Friday to help disadvantaged Ugandan entrepreneurs! We have a challenge for you… This Black Friday weekend, we have increased the prices across all of Uganda Marathon packages by 10%, with the difference going to help a young Ugandan entrepreneur start their journey in business. We are asking you to buck the trend and pass on your savings from all the Black Friday deals out there, use this holiday to make an incredible difference in the life of a disadvantaged youth in Uganda. Just £200 can make a life-changing difference to 10 youths, helping them to start their journey in business and pull themselves out of poverty. So by signing up over Black Friday weekend and paying an increased registration fee, you are starting your legacy early by changing lives in rural Uganda. Welcome to a Black Friday Like No Other! This project is run by Rural Community Initiative for Development, one of the Uganda Marathon partner projects. Registering for the Uganda Marathon requires you to fill in a registration form and pay a deposit. If you would like to donate more or less in our Black Friday offer, please do talk to our...

A Dairy Cow Project for Ssaza Elderly Group

A Dairy Cow Project for Ssaza Elderly Group

One of the central functions of Support for The Elderly Person (STEP), one of our incredible partner projects, is organising elderly people in local areas into groups so that they can work together to support themselves. The members of the groups don’t have family that can support them so they must help each other in order to survive. Following the success of the pigs project, a wonderful project that saw runners from #UGM2015 build a piggery for one of the STEP elderly groups and then runners from #UGM2016 extend it for more pigs. We are so excited to announce our latest project with another of the STEP elderly groups! The Ssaza elderly group, from the village that sits between the Athlete’s Village and Masaka town, are being gifted a cow to raise and farm so that they can generate an income for their group. Animal farming is a very good way to gain income in the local area and it is an occupation that can be done by the elderly members of the group. This cow should serve as an excellent long-term source of revenue for the group so that they can support the elderly members. We are also using UGM funds to build a cow enclosure (seen above), so that the members are able to keep and farm the cow effectively in their age. We are expecting this project to change the lives of not only this Ssaza group, but many other groups in the Masaka region. Part of this agreement is that the first female calf that is bred by this cow is passed on to another elderly group...
