Thanks from Fields of Life for supporting girls’ education in Uganda

Last year, Bishops’ Appeal supported the I AM GIRL project in Uganda through our partner agency Fields of Life working on the ground. CEO Tony Gaston filmed a brief report during a visit to Uganda in late September ‘23, showing a school where a grant from Bishops’ Appeal is reducing the barriers to the education of adolescent girls.

Girls often missed school for several days each month during menstruation, simply because they did not have access to a clear source of water, soap and a safe, private girls’ latrine to wash in. Thanks to the generous support that you have given to Bishops’ Appeal, we have together been able to make a difference to Ugandan girls through the I AM GIRL project.
