Keeping Ugandan girls in school - fundraiser
Support the IRC fundraiser to raise € 10,000 to ensure that 1,500 people in Uganda get sustainable access to safe water. And that the distance girls in the community have to walk to collect water will be reduced so that they can spend more time in school.
Every day, in Uganda, girls have to walk more than a kilometre carrying 20 litre containers of water on their heads. That means they miss out on school. On Sunday 12 March: IRC staff, family and friends will run The Hague's City Pier City to help change this situation. Sponsor our runners and support us in keeping the girls of Uganda in school.
