Members, alumni and friends of Darwin College are warmly invited to dust off your glad rags this weekend and join us for a charity ball to support the work of Tusome Africa.
Founded by current Darwin PhD student in Education Bea Simpson, the charity provides crucial support to allow children in Uganda to access education.
The black tie event will include dinner in the Darwin Dining Hall, as well as music from student societies and the opportunity to celebrate both Uganda’s cultural richness and the transformative power of education.
Last year, Bea talked to the Darwinian magazine about how her studies at Cambridge and the creation of the charity were two sides of the same coin.
“The courage to set up the charity came the minute I was accepted at Cambridge,” she said. “I knew that it had to do more than just get me a degree – it had to have a wider impact. Cambridge has really shaped my understanding of education, and Darwin has been at the centre of that. Seeing our volunteers in action gives me an incredible joy which fuels me.”
Full details and booking information for the ball are available here.
