    A BIG THANKS TO ALL SPONSORS

  • Background Information About The Children

    By sending 300 children to school, 30.000 lives are being impacted! Twenty years of civil war took a heavy toll on children. The parents from 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. The parents of most of our kids are illiterate, traumatized, HIV positive, became pregnant at a very young age, and have to care for a large family.

     

    In addition, 22STARS enlarged their project to the Danida slum, one of the poorest areas of Jinja in Eastern Uganda. The conditions in which the people are living there is very similar to the ones to be found in Acholli Quarter. The Danida slum has been affected a lot by food scarcity, a lack of business opportunities, and is the home base of internally displaced people from all over Uganda, including also Acholi people. Many of the kids of both Acholi Quarter and Danida slum lost one of their parents or even both and are taken care of by an aunt or uncle. We want a better future for these children and their communities and for that they need education. Once the children are doctors, engineers, teachers and so forth they will become change-makers and will be able to give back to their community.

     

     

  • These 292 kids found a longterm sponsor!

    We would like to thank all persons below for their kind heart! 15 of our kids go to boarding school, 10 to an international school, 40 to secondary school, 67 to kindergarten and the others to primary school!

You are able to enjoy our blog posts, and visit many areas of our websites without providing us with any personal information.

1. Personal information 22STARS FOUNDATION collects

Information We Collect


To sponsor a specific child long-term, you must provide us with certain information, such as your name, email address, payment information, and the name of the child that you like to sponsor. This is necessary as we will send you regular updates with regards to the child that you sponsor and or our ongoing project. You may also choose to provide us with additional personal information if you contact us directly. 

We treat your information very confidential. If you like to be an anonymous sponsor of a child, or make an anonymous donation to one of our causes, we will not publish your name related to the cause or specific child anywhere. 

If you like to sponsor a child publicly we will put your name on our website and social media in relation to the specific child you sponsor or cause you made a donation to. We don’t publish any other details of you and don’t give your contact details to anyone outside of our organization, neither the child that you sponsor will receive your contact details.  

To make a general donation, you do not have to provide us with any data and hence can send us money which we treat as an absolute anonymous donation. 

2. The legal bases we rely on to collect, use, and share personal information

Why We Need Your Information and How We Use It

We rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

•	when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
•	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
