Awarded to Deirdre Howard
The Uganda Relief Club is a club at the Saratoga Springs High School that holds fund raisers to donate to the organization, Invisible Children, Inc. which helps to build schools and positive safe havens for children in the war torn area of Northern Uganda. Deirdre has a passion to help third world countries and to be able to make a difference with helping peers take action. This project both helps others get involved in community action and teaches others about the issues children have to face in other countries. The money raised will go directly to build radio towers in the Congo to alert villagers in Uganda and surrounding areas where the rebel army is and where to take cover. We are very creative in planning events, movie nights, dances, concerts and bake sales to make this happen.
