My name is Lewis Way and I am 18 years old. In September I will be travelling to Uganda with 17 other "Kwaya" volunteers to work in the slums with the African Children's Choir.

I am funding my own travel costs however every volunteer is committed to raising $750 for the projects we will be working on. We will be building a new bathroom in a slum school so the children don't have to use the hole in the playground. We will also be delivering supplies to the local orphanage.


Kwaya is run 100% by volunteers so 100% of the money collected will be spent on these projects in Uganda.


The African Children's Choir is an organisation that rescues children from the slums and gives them a better chance at life through music.


For the last 2 years my family have hosted children from the African Children’s Choir, and I was so inspired and have learnt so much about life from these beautiful resilient children.


I feel I should give something back to these people that have given so much to me.
Any help will be very much appreciated.
