About

Help me to raise €3000 for my 30th Birthday!

I'm turning 30 on the 10th April. And I feel incredibly lucky. I have so much goodness in my life, so many opportunities, so much support from family and church and friends.

Not everyone has it so easy.

I would love to use this milestone birthday to give back. I don't need more stuff, a big party, endless bottles of cremant (although that is always nice!).

I do need to see this world become a little bit fairer, a little bit brighter, a little bit stronger.

This is my idea...

Event details

100 x €30 for my 30th Birthday!

It would be the best gift to me, if you'd consider donating €30 to River of Life's Leadership Academy program.

Together, we can enable two gifted young Ugandan woman to finish this year of University. Robinah is studying Social Work. Sharon is studying Adult Community-Based Education. Both of these women come from poor communities and have the potential to make a huge difference with this education and their own passion.

My aim is to raise €3000 for the Leadership Academy Program. It will first go to pay the fees for these two women, and any extra will enable even more young Ugandans to continue their education.

€3000 is £2489 or US$4141. I think we can do it! Join me? Donate €30 (which is £25 or $40) or whatever you feel led to give, and make my 30th a birthday to remember.
