Internet Café Fundraising Campaign

Internet Café Fundraising Campaign

$12,000 Down. $13,000 To Go.

As Project FOCUS is working on fundraising for a Lyantonde Internet Café, we want to keep you updated on our progress. Over the past couple of months we have raised $12,000 towards the café, as well as enough money to send our long term volunteer back to Uganda to implement the café through a different campaign.

Here’s the breakdown of donations we’ve received/been promised thus far:

$5,000 – Canaday Foundation Grant

$5,000 – Individual Donor

$2,000 – Individual Donor

TOTAL: $12,000

Thank you for your continued support! You can view more information about the Internet Cafe Development project, as well as a proposal and budget here.

Also, thanks to all of you who came out to our Funky Buddha Event on October 15th! We raised $600, which will pay for most of Grant’s flight ticket back to Uganda, and we had an amazing time.
