Cunina in Uganda
Haiti was the first partner country of Cunina, but Brazil, the Philippines, Nepal and South Africa quickly became partner countries too. Cunina operated in Congo from 1996 until 1998. We had to put our activities in this country on hold due to the constant political instability.
In 2013, Cunina returned to ‘black Africa’ and chose Uganda as their sixth partner country. Sophie, the founder of Cunina, was deeply touched by the stories of Els De Temmerman about the child soldiers in the north of Uganda. She decided to travel to the ‘Pearl of Africa’ to visit different schools and educational organizations. We selected two partner schools in the inland to cooperate with on child sponsorships and educational projects.
Uganda, as opposed to their neighboring country Congo, transformed immensely over the last ten years. At first, it was a country affected by war, but it is now a stable country with a growing economy. The Ugandan people want to progress and you can feel that. We are incredibly happy that we can give you some more information on this amazing country and show you our plans for the future.
