One week remains before our volunteer and cyclist Peter Lund begins his long journey around Lake Victoria on his bicycle. We are bust looking for sponsors and donors in Uganda to help us make this project successful, and to raise initiation money for the Tweyambe Micro Save program.
We have found lots of local support for both the Ring Around Victoria project and the Tweyambe program. Two local radio stations, Kindom FM (93) and Tiger FM (102.5) have helped us with air time to talk about the organization and spread the word. SWICO insurance has pledged to donate 500,000 shillings to help. Kampala Cycling Club has tuned up Peter's bicycle and donated some useful parts, such as new tubes, to keep him rolling smoothly. we really appreciate the support! We hope to continue getting local companies and donors involved in our organization.
