Help us to empower families in Uganda!
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 in Danida in Jinja, who live in extreme poverty after having fled conflict zones in Northern Uganda and neighbouring countries.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
"The thrill of taking lasts a day. The thrill of giving lasts a lifetime."
Sponsor a child and change a life!
At 22STARS we believe education is the key to fight poverty and disease. Therefore, a sponsorship is a long-term commitment and happens through a recurring payment plan.
Help us to keep our programs running!
We focus on a holistic approach to education. Besides sponsoring a child, we run additional programs throughout the year benefitting all children and the community they live in. Make a recurring or one-time donation to a program of your choice.
Support our emergency needs!
Life does not always go as planned. We do whatever it takes to be there for children in emergencies and for specific causes.These emergencies vary from food supply, mosquito nets, mattresses and life threatening medical care. Fight with us against extreme poverty and support our most urgent program needs.
With us your donation goes where it is meant to be. Let`s increase these numbers together!
22STARS is run by Susan Laker, Aidah Wafula (Ugandan) and Stella Airoldi (Dutch/German). The trio met for the first time in Uganda in 2009. Witnessing over years how much entrepreneurship and education impacted the life of Susan, was the biggest inspiration and motivation for them to align their powers and start 22STARS. The Foundation is registered in the Netherlands as an ANBI (Public Benefit Organisation), and in Uganda as a Grassroot / Community Based Organisation.
