Thank you to all who have been supporting the Paul Mutamba Education Fund. (To find out more about Paul's story and how I got involved go here.) It has been a busy several months as he completed his Diploma in Law with first class distinction at the Law Development Centre in Kampala and successfully applied for the Bachelor in Law degree course at Uganda Christian University in Mukono commencing this September. It's a truly amazing achievement to come from cancer recovery and a dead end degree to first class marks in such a competitive field as Law within one year. We are seriously proud of Paul's achievement and dedication and all of you who have come alongside to support him in this. 

Once Paul was accepted into the Law degree we then had the task of raising the £3000+ required to fund his tuition, accommodation and living expenses for this next academic year.

As part of this fundraising we held a sponsored walk in Scotland in July with about a dozen participants. This was a great encouragement and added new supporters to the cause as well as boosting the online fundraising at youcaring.com/paulmutambafund which will have passed £2000 once sponsor money still to be deposited is included. 

At this time I am delighted to be able to say that we have paid the bill for Paul's first term fees in full so he will be commencing in September. God is good. Thank you all so much!

We are well over half way to covering the costs for his entire year so keep sharing and let's see how far we can get!
