This morning I trained a small group of Congolese women in making beads jewelry. We learn how to make christmas tree earrings which they will try to sell in the local market before the holiday.

Yesterday we started working with a new group of Congolese refugees in Makindye. The group consists of 40 children that due the economic constraints of their family, do not get the chance to attend school. From now on they will be learning English and writing 5 times a week. Our volunteers will be visiting the group every Monday to make sure they get enough fun and play.

I also started working with a small group of women from the same area, and had the first bead jewelry lesson with them. The women made a beautiful, simple bead earrings which they will try to sell before the next leson.

Since the beginning of our activities we have been teaching English, handicraft, soap making and other skills with adults of five different refugee communities in Kampala. We have also run weekly learning and playing activities with children of four different communities. All our activities are very inclusive and integrate children and adults from the neighboring Ugandan communities. We have already provided more than 150 hours of teaching activities in total reaching around 200 Ugandan, South Sudanese, Sudanese and Congolese adults and children.

This is a great opportunity to introduce the group of activists that will lead this organization:

Muhtar Awadalla is a Sudanese law student at Cavendish University and a human rights activist, advocating for refugees in Uganda. His life experience starting from war-torn Darfur, and passing through Chad, Libya, Egypt, Israel and now Uganda has made him intimately understand the struggles of refugees and he is determined to help them receive equal opportunities. Mukhtar will be in charge of our legal advocacy department.

Olinga Gilbert is a Ugandan social activist who holds NGO Management degree from Cavendish University. He is the founder and executive director of another organization – Testimony Africa (http://testimonyafrica.org/) a children and women centered charity organization. He is driven by a passion to ensure that all humans are dignified, respected and afforded equal opportunity in life. Gilbert will be in charge of many of our planned projects with refugee children as well as the administrative work of running of the NGO.

Tuamzghi Teame, an Eritrean activist who passed through many countries in his search for safety. He has been a leader of Eritrean asylum seekers in Israel, helping them to organize and mobilize in demand of their legal rights. He also helped refugee community at different facilities and organized demonstrations for the Eritrean community. Tuamzghi is interested in helping refugees and asylum seekers to get status and help organizing the Eritrean refugee community in Uganda.

and me, Dr. Noga Shanee was born in Israel but chose to leave as a result of the many human rights violations taking place in her country. She has PhD in Political Ecology and has years of conservation and social activism experience. She lived in Peru for ten years as the founder of Neotropical Primate Conservation, focused on supporting community led conservation initiatives in South America. She is also the founder of the UK based organization Reclaim Conservation (www.reclaimconservation.org). Noga is the executive director of Aniye and will be in charge of overseeing all our projects and develop new initiatives.

I guess you are all very interested to see this new house I rent, and especially the sofa!

So here it is, not a fancy house and only half furnished, but nice and cozy :)

The new super fancy mosquito net I got today, might be the solution for my sleeping problems and maybe, just maybe save me from malaria. You can see that there is still no bed or storage places. Sitting on my royal bed and thinking on shelves....

The sofa!!! I also own 2 glasses of wine, and soon I will be rich and can fill them with wine :)

Look, I can cook!

Washing clothes in my super modern shower/toilet/hole in the ground/washing room.

First, Aniye is now formally registered as a non-profit company.

The registration process was swift and extremely efficient and it is a great first step on our way to becoming an NGO!

Second, we are in the midst of a 2-day grant writing workshop for local, social and environmental NGOs in Lira, Northern Uganda. We learnt that there are very complicated social issues in this area caused by years of insecurity in the past, and resulting in very high rates of child marriage. It is a great privilege to be able to help these small organizations to become more efficient in their struggle to make a change.

Third and probably most important, donations are still coming in, both here and in other means, which is a great great help! There is still a long way to go before I have enough to secure the next few months of my activities here in Uganda so please, keep sharing this campaign.

Here are some photos from the last few days. Thank you so much everyone and I will keep updating :)

The first week of the campaign is over and I am really thankful to everyone donating, 22% is not a bad start!!!

Here are some photos from my last working week with the refugee communities in Kampala and from a two-day workshop we ran for small local organizations, teaching them how to apply for grants for their own important causes.
