St. Josephs has donated a total of €31,350 to Aidlink as a result of all of our fundraising efforts earlier this year.
Thanks to everyone who helped out and took part in the various fundraising events. This is a tremendous amount of money that Aidlink can use to help some of the most underprivileged parts of Uganda.
Ireland's Uganda Embassy in Kampala welcomed students and teachers of St.Joseph's and Aidlink members to Uganda.

We visited Eco Brixs along with some students from Archbishop Kiwanuka. Eco Brixs is focused on creating green jobs for vulnerable members of the community through a closed loop recycling system in Masaka, Uganda. It was a great opportunity to learn about their closed-loop recycling programme to help tackle the issue of plastic waste and unemployment in Uganda. https://www.ecobrixs.org/
