About My Campaign

I have the unique opportunity to travel to Uganda for 10 days in June as the Communications Intern for Fields of Dreams Uganda (FoDU).

FoDU is an international non-profit humanitarian effort working to provide hope to the orphaned and vulnerable children of Uganda through soccer and education. Uganda has a rollercoaster type history, with many up and downs. Most recently, with the help of YouTube, videos and information about the LRA (Lord’s Resistance Army) and Joseph Kony (KONY 2012) have been seen world-wide and have shed light on atrocities occurred. Millions have been displaced and orphaned as a direct result of the LRA.  FoDU‘s primary goal is to provide hope and re-inspire dreams among the people of Uganda.

As the Communications Intern, I’ll be working closely with children and young women of Kampala, the capital city of Uganda, to shed light on their narratives. Soccer is known as the “world’s game” and in Uganda, it is one of the passions driving many of the adults and children. Not only will I be documenting the soccer tournament this year (first all-girls tournament ever) but  also working closely with the adults and teachers at each of the three partnering schools (Africa Greater Life, Blessed Hope Champions Academy, and New Kabaale Busega) to document the educational process. Furthermore, through narrative collection, I’ll be working to illuminate the specific challenges facing the young women of Kampala, with a focus on what the outlet of sports means to them. Equipped with educational tools and soccer training, I hope to give back and make a difference in the life of a child half a world away, and I know they have a lot to teach me as well.  

The total cost of this trip is around $3000, and I am confident I will reach this goal. However, I do need your help to get there. Please consider supporting me on this journey. Follow the link below to learn more about Fields of Dreams Uganda, and donations for the trip go through Fields of Dreams Uganda and are tax deductible.

Thank you very much for your support for this endeavor and I look forward sharing in the experience upon return.
