In case you know me personally, you probably already got a snap from an over-excited me talking about my Uganda trip. In case you don’t know me, I’m glad you somehow made it here. For everyone that is not just interested in the project, but also wants to know who I am, I wrote a little introduction.
I’m 27 (28 by the time I leave in January), talk a little too much, laugh a lot and would love to drop everything right now to go and save the world. I usually spend my holidays traveling with my church doing humanitarian missions, go out with my friends, swim in public pools, try to get a tan and end up gaining around 5 pounds, from all the ice cream I eat.
As much as I love my spending time with friends and family, I really wanted to be the change for 2024.
Actually do something meaningful. “Be the change I wanna see in the world.”
So I decided I wanna go overseas and volunteer in another project. Looking for volunteer options is almost a little like scrolling through tinder, there are so many options at some point I just hoped for that “this is it / “I’ll marry him” kinda moment.
That’s when I stumbled over the Child Care Project – Uganda. It was love at first sight!
The Child Care Project offers children of all age groups, ranging from the really little ones to those that are almost out of school, a safe place to be. Around 30-50 kids come here from Mondays to Fridays to laugh, learn, play and eat. They really get to be a child, free of all worries.
The daycare is open all day and provides a meal for every child. For many of the children this is the only meal they get a day.The daycare is not only important for the children, but their parents, especially their mothers. Knowing their kids are safe allows many women to go to work (KALiARE Frauen-Projekt) and earn money to provide food for their families.
Karmalaya has many other projects in Central Uganda that all tie together so if you want to know a little more about the project or organization here is the link to the website, or my email in case you want to ask me directly: [email protected].
I am grateful for every dollar you decide to donate, in order to allow me to help out in the Child Care Centre in Uganda for four weeks as my new year resolution, and who knows - maybe it is your dollar that provides a hot meal for one of the kids.
