Meet the team!
Our kindergarten has been open for a bit over 3 months now and we are more than happy with our team - individually they are all having an impact on the daily work at the kindergarten.
The team includes Lukas, Doreen and Josephine as our tutors and mentors. We have Emma and Alan who take care of all matters 🪴 and security. Our cook Noel making sure everyone’s bellies are full and happy. And Josephine, who takes care of the overall state of the buildings and housekeeping.
WE ARE READY TO OPEN - After many months of uncertainty, we are officially set to open our education center on the 21st of February! Take a look at those pictures - and welcome our first class of children. In the past weeks, they‘ve come to visit our kindergarten with their families. Everyone is more than excited to start this new journey.

The local ceramic artist Susanne started a project for us by having 20 artists paint ceramic cups with motives inspired by their daily works in painting or photography.
The cups were auctioned in September and we are more than moved by the social engagement and the amazing outcome of this great project!
Thank you to Susanne and all the amazing artists as well as bidders and donors.
Art truly brings people together - in our case, for the children of Uganda
With the idea of combining art and social commitment, a collection of unique pieces has been created since the beginning of the year and is now finally available to see and purchase. The artist
Susanne Schäfer has persuaded 20 "artists", who work artistically both professionally and in their free time, to design individual mugs and they all make them available for a good cause. Through
the different design possibilities of painting and photography, a series with great diversity and individuality has been created.
From 03.09.2021 to 30.09.2021, the cups can be admired in the entrance area of the Mia-Münster-Haus in St. Wendel (opening hours: https://bibliothek.sankt-wendel.de).
Up to and including 25.09.2021, everyone has the opportunity to place a bid for one or more cups. There is a minimum bid for each work of art; if there are several equal bids, the lottery will decide.
Enquiries and bids are welcome by e-mail to: email@example.com
All proceeds of the auction will go to our association.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the initiator Susanne Schäfer and all the artists who made the campaign possible!
We would like to sincerely thank the Hasborn year group for their donation of 241€ from the remainder of their year group fund!
We would like to take this opportunity to thank a number of donations in favour of our association:
- We would like to thank the company Elektro Jäckel for financing our solar system in Uganda and thus also for their many years of support!
- To the bakery Conrad, Parkett Henkes and the municipality of Tholey for their continuous support!
- To the Kugel company from the Black Forest and the Bad und WellnessIdeen company from Hesse!
- And to all the individual donors of the last weeks!

#flattenthecurve and of course follow national measurements to prevent further spread!
We, the board of Kisoboka, want to take this moment to say thank you to our incredible team and to all our supporters through the last months.

"Round and round for a better education"
Orgateam of Solilauf decides the kindergarten project in Uganda as a new aid project
The orgateam of the parish of St. Pirmin and St. Michael of the parish of St. Ingobertus has decided on a new aid project of the Solilauf: "Round by round for a better education! Kindergarten construction in Uganda - we make it possible", this is the motto and at the same time the call to do their rounds again on 12 and 13 September 2020 in the Mühlwaldstadion in St. Ingbert. The 15th Solilauf thus supports the project of the Saarland association KISOBOKA e. V., which is run on a purely voluntary basis and financed exclusively by donations.
In Uganda, nine out of ten children of the corresponding age never attend a pre-school education and care facility. As a result, considerable deficits develop in the areas of motoric, cognitive and social skills. In the kindergarten, orphans and disadvantaged children are to be prepared in the best possible way for their further stages of life and the foundation stone for their later development is to be laid. KISOBOKA e. V. wants to accompany children beyond the kindergarten period and ensure that they continue their development in the best possible way.
"We didn't make the decision easy for ourselves after we shortlisted some excellent projects," reports Gabi Strobel from the organization team. "All the more reason for us to now be able to make a significant contribution to kindergarten construction and thus to convey to children in Uganda, a poor country in the global south, that they are valuable and unique and deserve opportunities for the best possible development.
24 hours in a unique atmosphere
From Saturday, 12 September, 3 p.m., to Sunday, 13 September, 3 p.m., rounds can be made in daylight or floodlight. Once again, a unique atmosphere awaits the participants: whether wheelchair users, mothers with prams, walkers, marathon runners, kindergarten children or pensioners, whether fast or slow, young or old - everyone takes part according to their abilities.
An extensive supporting programme with an open-air service and music bands will make it easier to do the rounds. Food and drinks for runners and visitors are also provided for.
All detailed and current information, registration (from August) and donation cards can be found at www.solilauf.org
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions:

We would like to thank the Brühllerchen very much for their donation. The group raised a total of € 3,000 at the two charity events in Hasborn and donated half of it to us! We were very pleased!
We would like to thank you for the donation that resulted from the sale of the schnapps bottles at the Christmas market in St.Wendel! Lovely that you have supported us again.
The Kisobokas and the Ornament choir wanna say THANK YOU! We're happy that many came and donated so much.
A package filled with 160 glasses in different visual acuities has been sent from "Rotary-Hilfe-Tholey-Bostalsee e.V." and its cooperation partner Gudd-Zweck UG and the so-called WIAF glasses recycling center to our community Kasanje, where we build a kindergarten. To increase our support, we called for a gathering together with the resident community representative which invited everyone in need of glasses. Both old and young came by to get advice on which glasses are needed. Thus, in this successful distribution all glasses were given to our parishioners who were very grateful.
We are very happy that we are mobile on our own because we have purchased our own car. It was donated specifically for this purpose and we would like say thank you very much for that!
We would like say thanks for the donation in the name of the late Kurt Backes. His relatives have given us a part of the money donations on the occasion of his bereavement.
