On the 26th of September , Seeds' team hosted our annual fundraising event in Geneva in Cave Sa with a wine tasting theme. The event started with a wine tasting competition were the attendants enjoyed different authentic wines. After that Angela, Seeds founder presented Seeds and then contacted Damien our field volunteer who provided more details about our VSLA projects in Uganda. During the event, the attendants were able to share their thoughts and opinions and directly ask Damian any questions accordingly.
The funds collected by this event will support the creation of a new round of village savings and loans groups (VSLAs) in the Bududa District, located in the North East of Uganda. This area is particularly remote, quite high in the mountains, and affected by regular landslides; thus one of the poorest districts of the area. The plan is to create additional 10 groups, providing therefore financial ressources to more than 350 people.
We thank everyone who supported the event and made it a memorable one!
