  • Help us to empower families in Uganda in 2023!

     

    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 Danida in Jinja, who live in extreme poverty after having fled conflict zones in Northern Uganda and neighbouring countries.

  • HOW CAN YOU 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 fighting poverty and disease. Therefore, a sponsorship is a long-term commitment which occurs through a recurring payment plan. With only 25 euro a month, you can have a big impact on a child`s future and community!

    Help us keep our programs running!

     

    We focus on a holistic approach to education. Next to sponsoring a child, we run additional programs throughout the year benefitting all the children and the community in which they live. Make a recurring or on-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 for specific causes and in emergencies. These emergencies vary from a need of food supplies, mosquito nets, mattresses to life-saving medical care. Join us to fight against extreme poverty by supporting our most urgent program needs.

  • About us

    22STARS is run by Susan Laker, Aidah Wafula (Ugandan) and Stella Airoldi (Dutch/German). The trio first met in Uganda in 2009. Years of witnessing how entrepreneurship and education impacted Susan’s life, was the inspiration and motivation for the three to align their powers and start 22STARS. First they founded the 22STARS jewellery business in 2013; that sells beautiful products handmade from recycled paper by the women in Uganda. Then in 2017, the 22STARS foundation was registered in the Netherlands as an ANBI (Public Benefit Organization), and in Uganda as a Grassroot/Community Based Organization.

  • Sponsorship vs Donations

    Our recommendation: sponsor 1-3 children long-term and make extra donations to our programs and emergencies.
