Stream of Life is an organization that is dedicated to supporting underprivileged, disabled and orphaned children in Uganda.​

Our focus is to initiate sustainable change processes and to positively change the lives of children through sound education, healthy nutrition, adequate medical care and loving support. In the long term we strive to change the socio-economic environment by building schools, training centers, orphanages, day cares and clinics.
 
We always are looking to bring an economic upswing in the areas our projects are based. Our philosophy has always been to help people to help themselves. We achieve this goal by working with local partners in Uganda, who lead on site projects independently and generate local solutions for local problems.​

Our Vision

Our vision is to give hope to needy people in Uganda by investing sustainably in their environment, their education and their know-how. We refuse to simply donate money, buy food or build schools: The sustainable transfer of knowledge is an integral part of our initiative.

We also want to teach people how to successfully manage their own projects or small businesses and how to take care of their own well-being. In the long run, Uganda can thrive on the initiatives of its citizens and positive change can be ignited. And maybe, just maybe through this commitment we can make this world a better place.

Our Goal

Following the spirit of helping them to help themselves, Stream of Life only supports partners and projects that stand financially on their own after completion. In addition to financial support, the transfer of organizational and management know-how in is our credo. This means a lot of work and daily coordination, but that is where our skills, experience and empathy come in handy.

Our work focuses primarily on helping needy children in Uganda, who often are abandoned or orphaned. We supply education, healthy nutrition, medical care and sustainable safe housing.

Our focus:
Schools, nutrition, medical care, sustainability and improved living.

”I never wanted to only donate money, it was always my approach to make it personal. It was never the big NGOs and their large organizations that appealed to me – I wanted to create change as a pioneer and on my own terms. There is no better feeling than putting a smile on a child’s face.”
