Where does the money from our blog go?

Our revenue from Birds on the Blog is quite low, too low to split between the contributers. So we put it to good use, we pay for the education of twin girls in Uganda.

A worthwhile cause.

If you visit our blog you can read more, if you subscribe to our newsletter you will get in just in time for our free Christmas gift to you.

With that out of the way we headed to the school. The children put on a song and dance for the parents and it was heart warming to see. We had drinks and bites courtesy of Hastoe Housing Association staff who selected this community as their overseas project

I sneaked off and had a meeting with the Head Teacher to see how he was settling (only been with us for 3 weeks) and also met the Girls’ teacher. She gave me a sneak preview of their end of year class reports. Although they are only 5 they had to do exams, Perfect was 5th out of 80 and Princess was 12th, whilst their older sister Cycline was 5th out of 30. Their best subjects are English and Maths. I can’t tell you how proud that made me feel. I also learned that our contributions were enough to cover Cycline’s fees last year so we have have sponsoring all 3 girls!
