Summary

Help us to empower families in Uganda in 2023! Our mission is to empower families in Uganda to rise above poverty. We use an integrated approach and focus on the development of economic, social, natural, human, and cultural capital. 22STARS collaborates with communities in Acholi Quarter in the capital Kampala and Danida in Jinja, who live in extreme poverty after having fled conflict zones in Northern Uganda and neighbouring countries. With your donation we pay for meals and school fees.

Challenge

Illiteracy is the sad truth for many parents and children at our project side. Twenty years of civil war took a heavy toll on the Ugandan people. The parents of the 22STARS children fled from northern Uganda to Kampala, where they sought refuge from the war. They settled in "Acholi Quarter" and ended up living in an area centred around several stone quarries. Even children as young as 3 years old, have to work, crushing stones, to earn money for food. The battle against poverty continues.

Solution

Our mission is to empower families in Uganda to rise above poverty. We use an integrated approach and focus on the development of economic, social, natural, human, and cultural capital. 22STARS collaborates with communities in Acholi Quarter in the capital Kampala and Danida in Jinja, who live in extreme poverty after having fled conflict zones in Northern Uganda and neighbouring countries. Our main program is our Child-sponsorship program, were we enable 500 kids to go to school.

Long-Term Impact

When a child receives an education, their future is brighter and their dreams become a possibility. When a child goes to school, he will no longer need to beg in the streets for food. An educated child will be better able to find employment to secure a future for them and their family; helping them to break the poverty cycle. An education child can be informed much earlier about their health and wellbeing thus, reducing the chances of child marriage, early pregnancies and HIV/AIDS contraction.
