Newday Academy – 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.
Rafiki – Defining Destiny
The project Rafiki focuses on the empowerment and support of women. Through individual self-help projects, mainly in the Mpigi region, women and their families are to benefit from targeted help.
First measures included investments in various sales stands that are now run by the families and a workshop on the subject of soap production. Further workshops on health and hygiene are planned.
Bubembe Island Kids
Together with our cooperation partner Bbanga Project we want to create better living conditions on Bubembe Island, an island in Lake Victoria. The focus is on sustainability, education and long-term help for self-help.
In a first step, a school garden was created and interim dormitories for boarders were set up. In the future, the infrastructure is to be further renovated and expanded, with the vision of an eco-village in mind.
Ssese Islands Food Gardens
The effects of climate change and dependence on imports from the remote mainland are having a massive impact on the inhabitants of the Ssese Islands. In cooperation with Bbanga Project, we want to secure the livelihoods of the population and make them fit for the future through local, organic agriculture.
Together with local pupils, teachers and parents, we are building school and community gardens and holding workshops and training sessions. In this way, we want to enable long-term food security and self-sufficiency for the local people.
“I have always wanted to do more than just provide financial help. Stream of Life supports the local people individually on their way into their future, and I am very happy to be part of it!”
