Why do the kids need you
Educate a child, and you potentially educate the whole nation!
The 22STARS KIDS projects are located in the Acholi Quarter slum in Kampala and the Danida slum in Jinja, Uganda. Twenty years of civil war took a heavy toll on children. The parents of the 22STARS KIDS in the Acholi Quarter slum fled during the war with the LRA and Joseph Kony from Northern Uganda to Kampala to seek refuge. They ended up living in a slum area centered around several stone quarries. Even kids as young as 3 years old are crashing stones to earn money for food. Although there is peace now in Uganda, the battle against poverty in the Acholi Quarters continues.
22STARS enlarged their project to the Danida slum, one of the poorest areas of Jinja in Eastern Uganda, which has been affected a lot by drought and food scarcity and addition is the home base of many internally displaced people from Uganda. The parents of most of our kids in the Danida slum and Acholi Quarter slum are illiterate, traumatized, HIV positive, became pregnant at a very young age, and have to care for a large family.
Many of the kids lost one of their parents or even both and are taken care of by an aunt or uncle. We want a better future for those children and their communities and for that they need education. Once they are doctors, engineers, teachers and so forth they will become change-makers and able to give back to their community.
