Starchild Loves Science

Over 40 Microscopes and various prepared slides were distributed to help with science classes.

Starchild is committed to encouraging girls to become scientists and hopes to work alongside St Andrew’s University to develop a Science Bridge Project to empower women in science in  Uganda . We also know that science is highly creative and encourage interdisciplinary arts and science. We are now making links with Lab 13 by Ignite and welcome their visit to our school next year.

Mama Wa Mit Women’s Project in the Rwanda  district,  Jinja, Uganda

Starchild has helped to develop horticultural, poultry and tailoring projects for a group of over 60 vulnerable women and their children. This is part of our sustainable development goals. We are delighted at the progress these women have made. We purchased bags of seeds for them, including, kale, peppers, maize, beans and spinach. The harvest is distributed amongst the women’s group and helps to keeps their families fed. The surplus they sell at the markets or to local people. Starchild provided the women with fabric and sewing machines. This enabled the women to learn a skill. By making and mending garments, they can keep a roof over their heads. With surplus funds the ladies bought piglets. They are now breeding them. This is helping the women’s group work towards self-sufficiency and develop small businesses. We encourage more interdisciplinary collaboration and partnership on this project.
