On Sunday, 11 October, the Lincoln University Future Leader Scholars will be co-hosting the "Walk with a Purpose" a 10km walk along Banks Peninsula to fundraise and raise awareness for the Fountain of Peace Children's Foundation NZ.
With schools still closed in Uganda due to the COVID-19 crisis, the Fountain of Peace feeding programme at the Rwenjaza Hillside School is not permitted to restart.
Families in this very impoverished rural area totally relied on the feeding programme to provide for their children and are now struggling to survive.
Money raised through Walk with a Purpose will go towards relief packs for these families as part of the Lincoln Future Leaders Scholars "Lend a Hand" project. The goal is to raise $2750 which will provide 50 families with much needed food for survival.
The scholars are inviting people to join in on the day and show their support for Walk with a Purpose by registering at register athttps://bit.ly/3jJB7GJ
