We are blown away by your overwhelming support these past three weeks. From Giving Tuesday two weeks ago, we raised $1,004, which brought us to more than two-thirds of the way to our goal. From these past three weeks, thanks to our 92 donors, over $4,000 has been raised for the EWB Uganda team altogether, and we are at 81% of our goal! Now, we are entering the fourth and final week of our campaign!
We have an important update on our project. As we had previously mentioned, our travel team was scheduled to depart to Uganda today on December 13th. However, it is with a heavy heart that we have decided to postpone the trip due to security and safety concerns in Uganda. We do believe that we can keep the project timeline on track, with the hydrogeological survey to be conducted by a local contractor in January 2022, the postponed assessment trip planned for late March during spring break, and the implementation trip planned for late summer. Even with this schedule change, there will still be a lot to do next quarter, as we plan on holding AutoCAD workshops, mini-lectures on Ugandan history and culture, and much more!
With that said, we still need your help! There are just 8 days left to raise an additional $940, and we know that with your help we can get there. Our travel team will still be traveling in the future, so please join us in sharing our campaign online, in person, and on social media with the URL spark.ucla.edu/ewb_uganda.
Thank you so much for your donation, and let's keep the momentum rolling to reach $5,000! GO BRUINS!
