Help Rising Stars, established in 2019, is a Non-Governmental Organization registered in Spain aiming to improve access and quality of education in sub-Saharan Africa. Our first project is described under the ON-GOING PROJECTS “Uganda initiative”.

Our Mission

Mission

  • Our mission is to organize initiatives to improve the access and quality of education for children in need in sub-Saharan Africa.

Help Rising Stars supports and promotes improved education in two ways:
– by supporting and implementing training programs for teachers.
– by improving the learning environment for the children, either by supporting the construction of new schools or by improving the conditions of already existing schools and its environment.

Help Rising Stars will direct its actions to geographical areas lacking acceptable public solutions, both on the African countryside and in urban slum areas.

When supporting specific schools Rising Stars will always require and secure the involvement and commitment from the local communities, not the least from the parents of the children. We believe that enduring impacts require local engagement, local efforts and local leadership. Unless this local contribution is secured Rising Stars will not engage in projects.

Furthermore, Help Rising Star will always make sure that supported projects fulfill basic values such as honesty, respect, gender equality and environmental sustainability.
