STIR has done a relatively modest donation to these two small cries for help. Maybe you like to support too? Just read their stories.
STIR prefers to develop local communities around developing Sustainocratic values. We tend to help with shared knowledge, inspiration, methodology, etc. Sometime we define projects together and try to attract international funding for it, either through donation to our own STIR fund, or through support channels. But sometimes we help out also directly, like in these cases….
Irrigation system for food for the poor in Uganda
There are increasingly good initiatives in Africa that engage people in their own self support. A young man in Uganda, named Nashif Achmed, is developing an area of ground in Uganda to develop food for the local orphans. Due to the onholding drought he has difficulties in sourcing enough water for his crops. He therefore wants to install an irrigation pump. This costs about 3500€ which they are trying to collect through crowdfunding. The project also engages young locals into learning dynamics. His work is important to avoid migration and to help locals sustain themselves. It is in the benefit of everyone that we support such great initiatives.
Education for orphans in Indonesia in covid time
Covid regulations have had a huge impact on everyone in the world, especially young people. Tourism has collapsed and taken away the income of many parents. This endangers the education for many young children, especially those who are already in a difficult situation, such as orphans. These people rely on the support and helping hand of other. A Dutch friend is helping this community in Indonesia and they made a little film…below the film you find the QR code for a possible small contribution.
