Thank you for supporting the Christmas Camp 2017/18

We camped, we played, we feasted and we made friends and we won !

One week of football, a week with 2.100 kids from all over Uganda. 

This was the 6th edition of the Christmas Camp, and we had it in Mityana.

We would like to thank you all for the support we received before and during the organisation of the camp week.

We would like to thank all the 120 coaches who brought the kids to the camp; we would like to thank the kids too. You are the biggest reason we do this. We had a great tine time together, and we look forward to the next camp with as much eagerness.

We would like to thank Royal Giant High School, Mityana. Thank you for hosting us and for ensuring we had such a great week.

We would like to thank every single individual who volunteered their time during the camp week. You, volunteers, are the heartbeat of the camp. You woke up earliest and slept latest all in the name of ensuring the camp goes well. And it did!
