We have talked to Peter: The construction of the ECDE class rooms and the cultivation of the school garden continue. The zucchinis and pumpkins have been growing fine and can already be transplanted. A personal challenge for the organic farmer from Germany: the simple tools and the heat. Thanks a lot again for your hard work and commitment!
Our UVF family is growing and growing: we are currently 175 members – let’s make it 200! So get on board and become a member if you aren’t already, and maybe you can think of someone who would like to spend 10€ to support our engagement in Uhola.

The new year starts off well: phase 1 of the school’s construction could be completed, which means the foundation has been done last week. Next steps: the walls for the classrooms.

One of our members – carpenter master and organic farmer – sets out today from Megesheim via Munich and Nairobi on the way to Uhola. In his time on the ground, he will support the construction of the school garden as well as the production of tables, chairs and shelves for the new classrooms. We are incredibly excited about your commitment and wish you a good flight!
We are looking forward to 2019 and hope that it will start how 2018 ended with successful fundraising and an on-going school construction project!
Construction is taking place for the classrooms of 2- to 6-year-old students at Uhola Primary School. We welcome the regular on-site report by Deputy Headmaster Charles Opondo. Thanks for the photos!
We have a meaningful, social and above all fitting 5 days before Christmas Eve a “last minute” gift idea: How about a UVF-membership or donation, so you do something good on behalf of your loved ones? Just click here.
The construction of the pre-school classrooms began with a ground breaking ceremony with the local priest of the local Anglican Church. Subsequently, measurement work took place. We are very excited and wish you all a nice 3rd Advent!
Well, were the boots and plates well filled this morning?
Nikolaus (commissioned by the Holger Maack Foundation and the Rieser Bauernmuseums- and Mühlenverein e.V.) has paid a lot of attention to UVF this year and has donated over € 2,250. You are fantastic! Let’s see what else will happen during Advent season.
