International Literacy Day Fundraiser

Reaching Beyond Globally Celebrates International Literacy Day With A Video Shorts Festival & Fundraiser

Reaching Beyond Globally celebrates International Literacy Day on September 8 with our Video Shorts Festival Fundraiser. We invite the RBG community in Uganda and worldwide to create video shorts highlighting favorite or original poetry, songs, dance, writings, storytelling or dramatic performances around the theme of Peace. This theme was chosen by the 15 students supported by Reaching Beyond Globally.  


A film with the submitted videos will debut on RBG’s YouTube channel on September 8. 


We will host a fundraising event on September 30 showcasing the compiled videos and celebrating Reaching Beyond Globally’s 5 year anniversary.
