Our Goal: Quality of Life for Children in Uganda 

Stream of Life is a private aid organization, which is dedicated to the support of underprivileged, disabled and orphaned children in Uganda.

 

Our Concerns are:

  • A home, food and school for children
  • Establishment of schools with good education
  • Donations that arrive are used 1:1 among the needy
  • Assumption of training costs
  • Building a livelihood from the ground up
  • Help for self-help, enabling career plans

Create living space

We support orphanages to provide children in Kampala with food, accommodation and a home.

Build schools

We finance and support the organization and construction of schools on site, to build a foundation for a better future with sustainable education.

Allow training

With a sponsorship you provide the children with the possibility to go to school and therefore with the chance for a self-determined future through education.

Provide clean drinking water

Having clean drinking water for everyday use is one of the most important things for development 

Showers and Bathroom Hygiene

Innovative Toilets improve hygiene and provide invaluable fertilizer for the community. 

Support Local Businesses

We help children and select entrepreneurs to start small businesses such as start ups and learn sustainable employment skills.

“We wish that the voices of these children will be heard by all, as clearly as we have heard them. Let us not talk, let us act!”

Monika Koczi | Founder Stream of Life

We are

Four socially engaged friends who have created a professional aid organization from a personal cause: Monika Koczi (Project Management and Entrepreneur in the IT sector), Sigrid Reymaier (Working in Telecommunications), Marco Villard (Artist) and Stephanie Langer (Photographer).

Monika went to Uganda in the summer of 2017 with the aim of completing a school build. The result was much more. The trip caused such inspiration that the Organization “Stream of Life” was founded. With the goal to help children in the slums of Kampala directly on sight, sustainably.

Current Projects

Our vision is to give hope to the Country and the people, that live locally, and to invest sustainably in the environment, education and training our overall principle is help for self-help.

Afrinena Orphanage – Afrinena Gospel Choir

Frank Mwesigwa is a music teacher and director of the Afrinena Children’s Voices Gospel Choir. He teaches children in the slum to sing and dance. In addition, Frank is a dedicated founder of the Afrinena orphanage, where over 50 children have now found a home.

With our help, food, schooling and medical care are ensured and the living situation is constantly improving.

Newday – kindergarten and school center

Our project partner Joshua Magezi implemented the construction of the Newday kindergarten with his own resources. Together with him, we would now like to build a school center for the sustainable education of needy children.

Joshua already has a lot of experience in setting up and running schools. Stream of Life supports him entrepreneurially, as well as with donations.

Bowa – education and medicine for Bowa children

Only 30 km from Kampala is Bowa, accessible via narrow paths. There is water from the well but no electricity. Doctors and schools are far away. The inhabitants are mainly subsistence farmers.

We want to support the families in Bowa so that the children can attend school and secure their future.

Banura Safaris Uganda – Tourist Guide

We are currently supporting our project partner John Banura in establishing himself as a local tourist guide in Uganda.

In addition to equipping him with an adequate vehicle, he is supported in construction and organization, as well as administration. Help for self-help is also the declared goal here. For a safari in Uganda he is highly recommended!

Firefly – Environmental Protection and Education

The Firefly project focuses on the region around Ssese Islands – an archipelago in Africa’s largest lake, Lake Victoria, where approximately 100,000 people live.

Currently we support Firefly in the development of an environmentally sustainable infrastructure and a school on Bugaba Island, as well as the construction of a water treatment plant for the resident orphans there. 

Bugaba – a home for orphans

Emily Nalukwago realized early on that the number of parentless and homeless children in the Ssese Islands is growing steadily. She has created a home for orphans from her own resources on Bugaba.

We want to help Emily develop the orphanage and to ensure the primary care, education and medical care of the children.

“The people of Uganda have impressed me deeply. The children exude a gratefulness, which I have never felt before.”

Sigrid Reymaier | Sponsorship Manager
