10 Years ago this month we first met the South Sudanese children at Kiryandongo. A lot has happened since! If you’d like to receive our August newsletter with all the latest news, please sign up now.
These students are in Years 10 (Scovia and Lovemore) and 11 (Komakech). We strongly want to make sure that they can continue to study in 2017. So we are currently contacting AREP supporters, asking for help in increasing the amount of monthly donations. This will enable to us to plan ahead.
Amy and Emmanuel are studying in Kabale.
Some of the students at our base in Northern Uganda, at Bweyale for the Term 1 holidays.
Those preparing for public examinations later this year had to stay in Kampala.
On the day Term 1 of 2016 ended, some of the children are pictured in Kampala
We now have a new donate button on the site which links to Charity Checkout, who specialise in helping Charities like AREP handle donations in a convenient way.
If you are an existing regular giver, either via standing order or direct debit, there is no need to change anything.
But if you’ve been meaning to start donating, or to change an existing regular donation, please try the Charity Checkout option.
The St Helens Star publicised the 2015 AREP trip to Uganda. Well done to Erin and friends and your Head of Year for enthusing students in Year 8 at Rainford High.
As a result of this article, Wish FM called and sent a reporter round.
Schools can play a huge part in raising awareness for charities working locally and in other countries. If anyone would like our more detailed pack of information about any of the sponsored children, or what we’re hoping to achieve during the trip, please get in touch.

This 60-mile sponsored walk (Puffin Island to Holyhead) raised funds for school fees. Part 1 was a similar distance along the Northern Coast of Anglesey from Holyhead to Puffin Island (the blue line).
The Southern (red) route completed a circuit of the island.
Each child we sponsor is known to us personally from our visits to Africa. Most of them have lost a parent or a sibling due to civil war.
The walk was completed and £2.2k was raised. Fantastic! Thanks to one and all.
