  • Education Is The Key To Fight Poverty And Disease!

    The 22STARS foundation is started by Stella Romana Airoldi and registered in the Netherlands, but we carry out all our projects in Uganda. We use education and entrepreneurship to empower children and their families to rise above poverty. We created within our sponsorship program long-term sponsorship for 300 children in Uganda and also run several community development initiatives including a nutrition program, small business training and micro loans program for 57 families, livelihood program, and our holistic after school program with extra-curricular activities.

    Our Five Programs represent an integrated approach to community development focused on the development of economic, social, natural, human, and cultural capital. We believe economic development and education combined with a strong sense of communal belonging will empower and position our communities to protect and preserve their culture, environment, and communities.

  • How It Works To Sponsor A Child Long-Term

    The idea is to support a child for at least a few years until they finish their primary education and/or their secondary education. Hence prices can increase once the child switches from kindergarten to primary school and secondary school, of which we will inform you in advance. If you like to stop your sponsorship, please let us know at least 4 months in advance, so that we are able to find a new sponsor. You will receive updates, school reports, pictures and you will be in our secret Facebook group where we post weekly updates and you can ask questions. Send us the name of the child(ren) you like to support and we will send you all the necessary information.

     

    The fees are an average as per term the exact amount can differ per child/ school. Therefore some kids costs more and others less, hence we combine the donations of all sponsors so we can make sure that all school costs of the kids are covered. In previous years our fees covered school fees and one uniform, however as we grew, we started to pay also for development and registration fees and for sportswear and exam fees: that is why we had to increase the fee price accordingly to cover all costs. If you like to pay for your child per month, please pay one term in advance, so that we can be sure that we have the full amount at the beginning of the term.

•	if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your donation if required by tax law; and
•	as necessary for the purpose of our legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as providing and improving our services. We use your information to provide the services you requested and in our legitimate interest to improve our services. 
	

3. The third parties with whom we share personal information
