Here I am with Irene at Lady Valeria College in 2019. Upon graduation, Irene accepted a teaching position with Fields of Dreams and is a living, breathing role model for so many young girls. I couldn't be more proud of her!
The purpose of the FoDU 5K for hope is to raise funds for the Hope Empowerment Center in Bbanda that will provide sustainable programming for generations to come in the areas of technology, sports, youth development and education.
fields of dreams empowers the orphaned and vulnerable children of Uganda through the vehicles of soccer and education.
hope is a basic need.
Fields of Dreams Uganda believes that the power of sports in a child’s life can make a lasting impact, and often a quality education is the only thing that can lift a child out of poverty.
Our ultimate objective is to help increase the opportunities for the children we serve — and we think the best way to do that is through education.
All of our programming, therefore, is aimed with this objective in mind. Our soccer and girl empowerment initiatives directly contribute to an increase in enrollment and a decrease in dropout rates at each of our partners schools.
We envision communities in Uganda where orphaned and vulnerable children can reach their full potential as compassionate human beings.
I am honored to serve on the Board of Directors of this remarkable organization.
