Welcome to blog number 1! We hope this will become a great platform for anyone and everyone to share in our successes, to learn from our challenges, and to offer ideas and suggestions about our work in the UK and Uganda. Central to our organisational philosophy is collaborative working and co-production, and we value advice and input from anybody who is willing to talk to us, in order to work together to achieve positive outcomes through our work in Uganda.
I’m not going to go into too much detail about what we do – we’ve covered that on our website – http://www.zuriprojectuganda.org (for those of you who have’t seen it).
We are aiming to write blogs that will contain updates about our fundraising progress in the UK, as well as exciting project updates from our team in Uganda, with the odd philosophical rambling about theoretical development and where we (think) we exist within that sphere! We will also ask volunteers, fundraisers, partners and pretty much any one else who has anything interesting to say about Uganda/charities/funding/impact/football/development to tell us their story (preferably in less than 500 words and with some glorious pictures), and we would be delighted to share it on this blog.
We will also upload photos and videos from our projects in Uganda, so you are able to see what your time, money and efforts are contributing towards. We will be posting monthly blogs and sharing them on social media, so whether you’re a budding young author or a seasoned pro, it’s a great opportunity to get your thoughts and opinions out there for people to engage with and learn from, or occasionally criticise!
That’s enough for now, if you have something to say, then drop us a line 🙂 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Oh, and follow us on Twitter @Zuri Project and like our FB page to get regular updates about our daily trials and tribulations.
