Get Involved with Home Sweet Home

Various initiatives were launched previously to raise funds for Home Sweet Home, e.g. art auctions, sponsored charity runs, “garage sales”, selling of old cell phones, cycling for a good cause – to only mention a few.

Would you like to launch an initiative for Home Sweet Home and you would like your initiative to be mentioned on our website? Then please contact us via e-mail to info@homesweethomeuganda.nl. You can also obtain information sheets/booklets from us.

How Can You Help Us Even More?

Share information about Home Sweet Home with your family, friends and acquaintances
– please always indicate our website address:  http://homesweethomeuganda.nl/

Provide us your old telephones/cell phones and ink cartridges/toners – we are reimbursed for these.

Nothing like cleaning up your house and selling your unnecessary items on a “garage sale” – we’d gladly receive the profits from this.

Is there a celebration coming up, e.g. wedding, anniversary, etc.? Maybe you can request your guests to, as gift ideas, contribute towards Home   Sweet Home.

Request your school, business, neighbour or church to assist with fundraising.

Your company’s logo can be displayed on our website should your company wish to contribute.

Recent Fund Raising Activities:

SMDB De Wegwijzer Primary (and Pre-primary) SchoolSMDB De Wegwijzer

From the Autumn to the Christmas school holidays SMDB De Wegwijzer from Nieuw-Lekkerland saved money for the Social Farm of Home Sweet Home. In each class there were initiatives organised (per group and/or individually) to collect extra funds. The children were truly inspired and enthusiastic to assist. They performed tasks like washing cars, recycling (e.g. turning in empty bottles), working in gardens, baking cakes/cupcakes and making armbands and cards.

Pupils, parents and teachers of De Wegwijzer – we thank you for your contribution and the mentionable amount received. We are planning to use this to build new animal shelters.

Christine and Piet Linders are Married for 25 Years and Donate to Home Sweet HomeChristine / Piet

Christine is a physiotherapist and worked for a few months in 2016 as a volunteer at Day Care Vincent. On her return to the Netherlands, she and her husband Peter celebrated their 25-year anniversary. Instead of gifts, they requested their guests to contribute to Home Sweet Home. A mentionable amount of €1,288 was received from this initiative. We used this money for amongst others to pave at the front of Home Sweet Home and to provide potted plants. It’s quite a relief that we don’t have to deal with mud-issues in front of our front door during the rainy season anymore.

Christine and Piet, we are very thankful for your contribution!

The Five Friends “Les Cinq” Celebrate their 60th Birthdays and Collected €3,000 for Day Care VincentCinq

Five good friends - Dirk, René, Paul, Roeland and Bob – turned 60 years old recently and celebrated their birthdays together. Since their 40th birthday, it is custom for them to celebrate their birthdays together every five years. This time around they requested their family and friends to contribute to Day Care Vincent instead of giving them birthday gifts. The guests were overwhelmingly generous and we were surprised with an amount of €3,000.

We would like to thank “Les Cinq” and all the generous givers for choosing Day Care Vincent and for the amount received!
