Have you ever thought you could help build a school in Africa?

On June 1st, 2019 I have the unique challenge of hiking or cycling to support a Primary School in the village of Kumi, Uganda. Born from the dreams of a visionary young man named Silver Omakenyi, this amazing school was realized through a partnership with Chinese Community United Methodist Church (CCUMC) of Oakland. The school opened in 2014, and seven classrooms now serve over 350 students, many of them orphans who would otherwise not have access to a quality education. The villagers are mainly subsistence farmers trying to live on $1-2/day.

I will be part of a group of hikers and cyclists who are fundraising for Kumi Christian Visionary School (KCVS).  The school has a long list of capital needs that continues to grow: running water, electricity, tree planting, playground equipment, water well repair, entrance road, textbooks, desks, soccer balls, window panes - the list goes on.  I’m hoping you will want to join me in this effort. Any amount you donate goes a long way to helping the school realize its goals. Learn more at the website: www.ycvm.org. I hope you will consider supporting the Kumi Benefit Hike/Ride and making a difference for the children of Kumi!

As an added incentive, all donations received by event day will be matched dollar-for-dollar!
