Jack Searson (Year 13 student at Hautlieu School 2019) made an application to The Hautlieu Trust to fund a charitable journey to Uganda with The Kafunjo Community Project. The plan was to build a 52 bedroom dormitory for the orphans of the village. The village itself is situated in the South West of Uganda in the district of Ibanda.

The Project itself has been running since 2014, making this the fourth trip out to Kafunjo from the UK. Work done in previous years has meant that the village currently has had seven classrooms built, employs 13 staff including teachers, cooks and supporting staff. But most importantly, 350 kids have the opportunity to receive free education up to primary 6 level as well as one free meal per day.

Jack’s application was successful and meant that he could fly out to Uganda on the 20th of November. The 2 week trip was life changing for Jack, and as a result he filmed, edited and produced this film.
