• Supporting 259 children and their families in Uganda

    FOUNDATION 22STARS

  • "Education is the KEY to fight poverty and disease!"

    The 22STARS foundation is based in the Netherlands, but carries out all their projects in Uganda. We use education and entrepreneurship to empower children and their families to rise above poverty. We create long-term sponsorships for 259 children in Uganda, and also run several community development initiatives including a nutrition program, basic needs program, small business training and micro loans program and our holistic educational program with extra-curricular activities.
     
    How you can help? Become a monthly sponsor for our social projects, sponsor a specific child long-term, make a one time donation and/or visit us in Uganda and share our story!

    Susan Laker is together with Stella Airoldi in Europe (1 April - 7 May)

    Our Ugandan project manager Susan Laker is together with 22STARS founder Stella Airoldi in Europe (1 April - 7 May) to kick of their #EducationIsTheKey campaign! Susan and Stella are talking at different events during their Social Impact Trip in Europe. Susan shares with the public the many challenges she faced in her life, and how being creative saved her family. Once she got access to an education her future and that of her children changed completely. Susan makes the impossible possible! Stella talks about why she started 22STARS, the projects they do in Uganda and why they changed from a product based model to a sponsor focused model, supporting now more than 250 kids in Uganda, and around 60 families!

     

    Watch Susan's inspirational talk below! If you like to meet up with us: next event will take place 29 APRIL in AMSTERDAM!

  • These 12 children need a longterm sponsor from term 2 2018 onwards

    ----------------

    We will add new kids to the list very soon. Let us know if you like to support several and we add more

    Estimated costs to send a child to school start with 0.50 euro a day for the primary school!

     

    The idea is to support a child at least a few years until they finish their primary education (baby class, middle class, top class an then P-1 till P-7) and/or their Secondary education (till S-7). You will receive updates, school reports and pictures and will be in our secret FB group where we post weekly updates. You can also make a general donation, which we will use for the children without a sponsor to make sure that they still go to school till we find them a sponsor.
