For the past two years we have been incredibly lucky to have supporters of AVS run the Ugandan Marathon and raise funds for AVS. The marathon has been featured in The Guardian, BBC, Bloomberg, Runners World and the London Evening Standard. The Ugandan Marathon recently won "Best International Event" at the UK Running Awards and Red Bull named it one of the "9 Best Marathons in the World" in 2018. Madeline Lewis and Suzie Fullagar (one of our Trustees) have set up JustGiving pages should you want to donate and help motivate our runners to do their best on behalf of AVS.

Education can be a way out of poverty and in to independence. We always have students with potential and given an opportunity they would thrive in school and given an education they could make something of their lives.

The new school term in Uganda starts back again in February and this year we have some promising students who are looking for sponsors. Student sponsorship can be as little as £10 a month, which enables us to send these young people to school. You can also sponsor individuals through their education and help them go on on to higher education as well as contributing to our overall education budget.

For more details on how you can sponsor a student and make a difference to a persons life for the long term please contact Trish Lewis on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
