The Great Projects' Sponsorship Promise

The Great Projects' Sponsorship Promise

Posted by Michael Starbuck on 16th Aug 2012

Book a wildlife volunteer placement with The Great Projects between September 1st and November 30th and through us help change the life of a deaf/blind child in Uganda or help save an endangered orangutan in Indonesia.

For the next three months, for every booking that we receive The Great Projects will either sponsor a child from the Kisoro Demonstration School in Uganda or an orangutan at the International Animal Rescue Centre in Indonesia for a whole year. This sponsorship program is in addition to the donation elements that already exist within all of our projects.

We have chosen the Kisoro Demo School because volunteers on The Great Gorilla Project visit here twice a year and from this we have been made aware that the children are in desperate need of help. At a school with very little funding; we know that this sponsorship will make a huge impact on the childrens' future. Therefore, each child we sponsor will be able to attend school and have all of their food provided for the entire year!

To start with every person from within The Great Projects' team has sponsored a child from the Kisoro Demonstration School

For those volunteers who opt for us to sponsor an orangutan; we will be doing this through IAR as they are a charity partner with whom we work so closely on our IAR Orangutan Project. The orangutan sponsorship money will be spent on things from food for the animals, an increase of staff to help with rehabilitation and materials for the construction of the new centre.

So when you book this month you will be asked whether you would like us to sponsor a child or adopt an orangutan for a year on your behalf. During the next year we will get continual updates on the children/orangutans progress which will be uploaded to the website for all to see. So please join our facebook group to learn more and to see how things are going.

This is our promise
