Our NGO is involved with diverse projects, ranging from rebuilding schools, supporting children to attend school or graduating from an apprenticeship. In the following you can read about each current project and the community.
Since 2009 Students for Children supports a group of children with special needs who suffer from the effects of leprosys. The community is in the South East of Kenya and currently the children receive education on a regular basis at the local elementary school, namely Msingi Bora Academy.
The Sona Pushkar project in India focuses on the families in need. The project near by the city Pushkar began with a construction of a blue house, thus providing more space and improving the quality of living of some families. The founder of the project, called Jaira, aims to build a supportive community including improved education and living standards.
Starting in September 2017, we have financed the tuition fees, unifroms and other school materials for a group of children from the slum, namely Nagwa that is located in Varansi (India). Together we collaborate with the local foundation and partner – Duniya.
The Green Butterfly project is located in Uganda where we support children through financing their school materials as they have lost their parents due to the consequences of AIDS. Despite attending classes at the Kabukye Senior Secondary School, the children are also educated in hygiene and food related matters.
The program for the Well-being of Children, also known as Pwc, enables children in Johannesburg to attend primary. Thereby, we sponsor their uniforms, which are required to wear in South African schools. Mostly the children of the community have experienced difficulties in domestic situations involving the negative effects of AIDS.
This project in Uganda enables several teenage boys to finalize their apprenticeship in becoming a professional carpenter. They get lessons in carpentry, manufacturing furniture, and metal- and woodworking. Particulalry, the school concerns the consequences of AIDS as most of their students have been orphans as they have lost their parents to this illness.
This project aims to build two libraries in the rural areas in Honduras. The specific-related community projects amongst building the library, strive for sustainable progress. Therefore, the children attending school in these communities have access to enhance their knowledge and improve their reading skills.
The second Pwc proejct is located in the Congo near by the Rwandan border in a village, called Lulenge. The area has been destroyed by armed groups during the riots. So we support the community to rebuild the school and enable 300 children to attend school again. With this cooperzaion, we aspire to increase the number od children receiving education, but also developing sustainable teaching methods.
Kayenje CU Primary School is located in Butambala district in Central Uganda. The school has a population of 758 children (405 boys and 352 girls), all of whom were using one toilet, including teaching staff and workers. This greatly affected the learning abilities of the girl children, as they used share the only toilet facility with the boys and teachers.

Pwc (Ituri, Congo)
This project is another collaboration with the program for the well-being of Children (Pwc) in Congo. The aim is to build a primary school in the village of Bunia, which lies in the province of Ituri. This area used to be a conflict zone of the Congo, which is why many buildings have been demolished.
