Support our school in Uganda

Become a supporter of the Lake Challenge

PATRIZIA staff from the UK are organizing a walking challenge from September 20th to 21st in the Lake District National Park (northern England) to raise money for the PATRIZIA School Buyamba, Uganda. The so called Lake Challenge aims to help the PATRIZIA Foundation in raising the necessary money. 

Become part of the project and support the expansion of the school. Contribute with your donation to ensure that more than 800 pupils continue to have access to education and thus the chance for a better future.

PATRIZIA School Buyamba needs your help

Education for 800 children

St. Francis Primary School in Buyamba is a school for children between the ages of 5 and 14 in grades 1 to 7. The number of pupils has increased by more than 50 percent in the last ten years and now stands at over 800. This poses problems for the operation of the school, as the existing classrooms no longer offer sufficient space.

With the fundraising challenge, the PATRIZIAns want to support the PATRIZIA Foundation to enable the school to operate under the specified Covid-19 precautions and to implement all necessary measures for the increasing number of pupils. The money raised at the PATRIZIA Lake District Charity Challenge will go towards this purpose.

Hiking for the good cause

PATRIZIAns from all locations take part in the hiking challenge on England’s highest mountain. In addition to a demanding 47-kilometer hike over two days in the breathtaking scenery of the Lake District from High Pike to Hart Crag, they have also set themselves a high fundraising goal for the benefit of the PATRIZIA Foundation: Together they want to collect at least €100,000. The money will be used to support the PATRIZIA School Buyamba, Uganda. It will be invested in:

  • Material for a rainwater collection system
  • Installation of a rainwater collection system
  • Refurbishment in classrooms
  • Refurbishment in dormitories
  • Construction of two outdoor classrooms with shading
  • Renovation of school toilets
  • Renovation of sanitary facilities in dormitories

You can make a difference by giving the children a better future!

We need your help now to be able to implement the measures described above and thus help the pupils in Buyamba. Support us in giving children worldwide a perspective for a better future. We promise to use every donated euro in the best possible way. And every euro flows 100 percent into the projects.
