We had the great opportunity to visit the WIAF-Brillenverwertungsstelle in St.Wendel together with Mrs. and Mr. Roos from the Gudd-Zweck UG and Dr. med. Andrea Werner-Hauth (Rotary Club Tholey-Bostalsee). It was a chance to get to know their important work, to present our own vision for Uganda and to come up with the decision to also distribute glasses in our Ugandan community.

We would like to thank all the altar servers and young people from the Schaumberg, who collected a total of 360 Euro for our project within the scope of the 72h action of the BDKJ! The proceeds come from sales at the opening of the new meeting place on the Schaumberg, which the group has realized itself and another sale following a church service. We thank all involved children, adolescents and adults for their commitment and support!
A story that makes our hearts dance! About 20 rattling children from Habach/Eppelborn have donated their collected money from 2 years of rattling. The children (some missing in the photo) are in kindergarten, elementary school or fifth grade (4 to 11 years old). The amount was increased by the Sportfreunde H1 (Astrid Diwersy)! We say THANK YOU for 760 €!
Throwback: At the school ‘Gems Eppelborn’ we have been talking about the country Uganda and our work there with students during their project week. At the school festival, Ugandan products were sold at this wonderfully creative Uganda booth! We thank you for your interest and your commitment!
We thank the family and company Henkes for the generous donation of 5,000 € on the occasion of the death of Barbara Henkes.
We are very happy about the 500€ donation from our local Karate club! At their last general meeting the decision was made to donate the profits from their past catamarathon to our NGO! Our chairman Lukas visited the club and informed about the social situation in Uganda and the planned kindergarten. We are very thankful for the local cooperation! Thank you very much for your trust!
Thanks to everyone who came to the market on this winterlike day and made sure our day could turn out that successful! We sold a lot of beautiful Ugandan crafts as well as our yummy panini and gained a lot of donations and had wonderful conversations with interested peoople. Big thanks to all the Kisobokas that have been helping and to the organisers of the market! We are especially touched by the effort of Josef Haupert who has been since the very beginning selling products or did entertainment for kids on the market to donate his proceeds to us! THANK YOU!

We'd like to thank the Junge Union Neunkirchen/Nahe for their support and donation of 500€! As part of the cheque handover we also gave a speech in the community center in Neunkirchen/Nahe talking all about our experiences in Uganda, the realities of life there and of course our project.
We are happy about the great initiative at the last Christmas party of our village tennis club. The raffle was organized in favor of our association Kisoboka and a donation check in the amount of 550 € could be handed over to us! Many many thanks!
We`re having the First International Day of Education on 24th of January! The UN`s general assembly adopted a resolution back in December 2018 which agreed that 24th of January shall be dedicated to education from now on. The UN sends a strong message with this day, recognizing the fundamental role of education for peace and development! Education is not only a human right, but also a path to sustainable development! Education for all poses enormous challenges for us: education opens up a path out of poverty into a promising future for children. BUT: Worldwide, 265 million children and adolescents do not attend school or do not graduate! Of these, more than 20% are in elementary school age! Poverty, discrimination, armed conflicts or the effects of climate change prevent their education.
We are happy about the 750€ donation from KIZER Drinks as a result from their special sale deal in November: 5€ per bottle were donated to us!
We wish you glittery days with lots of love, extra warmth, gratitude and true relaxation! Because Christmas is only once a year! We`re also taking a little break!
We are so happy that we managed to complete this big step! Our NGO is registration is successfully finished.
We have been at our partner school and have presented our work and vision to the teaching team! That was nice and we are looking forward to everything that comes! The school hosted a little Christmas Bazaar for the new fifth graders. They were selling Ugandan crafts like angels and stars, but also homemade Christmas cookies for our project. We simply love this spirit of togetherness. Children supporting children! Look how proud they are! Thank you so much!
