22Stars is on a mission to empower families in Uganda to rise above poverty through local leadership, education and entrepreneurship. We believe that economic development and education, along with fostering a strong sense of community, are key to help communities break free of poverty. The 22STARS Foundation originated as the social business 22STARS Jewellery in 2013. While a product-based model is a great way to help people out of poverty by making sure they become more self-sustainable, the sales are also insecure. This is why we switched to a more holistic model that provides the communities in Uganda with a more stable and consistent income, allowing us to focus on Education, Entrepreneurship, and Local Leadership.
We have come this far that we can call ourselves a professional Non-Profit. Our projects use an integrated approach to community development – focusing on the development of economic, social, natural, human, and cultural capital. Empowered Ugandan people to preserve their culture, environment, and society is a proven result that makes us vey proud.
