Carefree to school

We are pleased to announce that our schoolgirls have received their new reusable cloth pads. Girls in Uganda often can not afford sanitary pads. As a result they are ashamed during menstruation and often miss school. As a last solution some girls even use chicken feathers! This campaign greatly helps our girls to go to school freely and without fear during their menstruation. We would like to thank Bettina Steinbrugger and Team from erdbeerwoche GmbH who donated the sanitary pads for their wonderful support.

2 new classrooms

And again we are happy to announce that 2 new classrooms are finished and our school shines beautifully now ;-)! Many thanks to "Ein Herz für Kinder" for the wonderful support. The new appearance of the school shows the importance of the study environment for the learning conditions of children. It is a necessary foundation for a successful and qualitative school education. The girls and boys of the Deseret Community School are of course very happy about their new classrooms.

Christmas party for our elders in the school

Through donations we were able to buy 50 blankets for Christmas for our elders of the community. They were very happy because even in Uganda it can get cold at night and many of them do not even have the money for a blanket, so they cover themselves with old clothes or something like that and sleep quite uncomfortable. Therefore the Christmas party for our elders at school was a very joyful event! We from Deseret Foundation e.V. wish you all a Merry Christmas and a happy new year!

Volleyball and Netball

We did set up a volleyball and netball court with nets and baskets. Since then the breaktimes are much more alive and the kids love these games. Ball games promote coordination skills, they awaken the team spirit in children and improve their physical and motor qualities. But the most important thing is: They are fun! Netball is a basketball-style game that is mostly played by girls and women and mainly in English-speaking countries like Australia, Great Britain and Africa.

Water tank for our school

We bought a water tank for the school. Although we do have a water pipe, the costs for water are always incredibly high. Water for washing hands, cleaning, construction and the garden can now be used from the water tank. This saves us a lot of money, which we now can use elsewhere for more important things.

Completion of classrooms

We are very happy - the 2 new classrooms are ready! Our 2nd and 3rd grades are now very proud of their new classrooms. Thanks to all supporters. The learning environment is crucial and in the new classrooms the children will be able to concentrate better and therefore learn with more joy, inspiration and motivation. Thanks again especially to the Stiftung Nord-Süd-Brücken in Berlin.

Dear friends, we are very happy to announce that we received the Town & Country Foundation Prize handed over by Mrs. Isabell Bellmont at the Town & Country Foundation House in Leipzig.

With the money we were able to renovate half of the school. As you can see now, there is an African (left) and a German (right) side. :-) We also bought a tabltennis table, which made the children very happy!

Dear friends, we are very happy to announce that with your support, we could finish the cementation of one of our classrooms.
I myself have been at school during the process in Feb. 2017 and here are some pictures I made during the work proceedings:

Work goes on uninterruptedly and there are many more things that need to be fixed. Please continue to support our vision. The gratitude of the children is immeasurable and with every donation you make, you change the life of these children for the better.

Doing handicrafts was fun!

During my last Ugandajourney in february I was able to bring along with me some craft materials. And doing handicrafts and painting was really fun for the children. They loved it! Children in Africa rarely have the opportunity to express their creativity, therefore it was something very special for all of them and in the pictures you can see their enthusiasm!
