Covid-19 consequences

March 2020:

It is with a heavy heart that we have to tell you that by decision of last nights press conference, Uganda is in a total lockdown. We can not keep the construction going as we all want to #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.
We hope to get back on the site as soon as the situation gets better.
Until then: stay safe, healthy and take your responsibility on not spreading this virus.
Webale nyo 🖤

Press release for Solilauf 2020 - 12. & 13. September

March 2020:

"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 .

Distribution of 160 glasses in Uganda

November 2019:

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.
