MAKE A DONATION FOR OUR 2023 PROJECTS
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 in Danida in Jinja, who live in extreme poverty after having fled conflict zones in Northern Uganda and neighbouring countries.
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.
