It takes just a few steps to create your page supporting The Uphill Trust (Scotland).
The Uphill Trust supports grass roots education in rural western Uganda: Uphill Junior School, a privately-owned primary school with kindergarten, was founded by a Ugandan teacher in February 2011 and provides educational opportunities for girls, orphans and children from poor rural families.
We are helping the school to build well equipped school buildings, maintain a motivated and well-qualified teaching staff, provide clean water and good sanitation, and support the education of girls and orphans.
When funding is available we also support projects that benefit the wider community, such as provision of mosquito nets, solar lanterns and reading glasses for the community elders.
The Uphill Trust is a zero-overheads charity - 100% of the money you donate is used to support Uphill Junior School.
Education is power!
Donating to a charity can be a lovely way to pay your respects to a family member or friend who is not longer with you. Donations in memory create a lasting legacy.
One family chose to donate the funeral collection of a much-loved family member to fund electricity for a classroom block at Uphill Junior School, creating light that continues to shine; another helped to fund the Uphill School Farm - something dear to their loved one's heart.
You can share the link for this page with friends and family, or click on the 'Fundraise for this Appeal ' button to create your own memorial page with photos and a personal tribute.
All money donated in memory will be sent to the school to support the project you nominate, or to enhance education for the children at Uphill, whichever you prefer.
Please contact the Trustees if you would like more information. Email: email@example.com or telephone 01259 742311

A legacy of light: One of our long term supporters donated the funeral collection from her father's memorial to Uphill and asked that it be used to fund electricity for the classroom blocks. His memory lives on at Uphill in a very practical way...
