The Child Care Project consists of two active teams. One directly on the ground in Uganda and one in Heidelberg, Germany.
The team in Germany tries to collect the financial means for the various projects and to win new supporters by organizing flea markets, having an information booth at the Africa-Days and participating in choral events.
The CCP’s board of directors runs the Child Care Project from Germany and is in constant contact with Ester, the headmistress of the CCP school in Inganga.
With the Child Care Project, the two siblings Jim and Ester have realized their vision to continue the work of their grandmother in Iganga!
The project’s founder
Jimmy Godfrey Mpungu founded the individual projects of the Child Care Project e.V. in October 2013 in the regions of Iganga and Buwama, with help from his sister Ester. These are small scale projects under development, driven by Jim and Ester’s longstanding vision of helping the community of their early childhood.
Short biography of the founder
Jimmy Godfrey Mpungu, *1968 in Uganda
His childhood and adolescence were strongly influenced by the social work of his grandmother and mother, who cared for, among other things, homeless and orphaned children and took them unconditionally
When Jim went to the United States to study there, he was always aware of the poverty of his country of origin and supported his grandmother’s work financially
After her death, he and his sister Ester decided to continue the work of his grandmother in their community Iganga
In 2010, the idea of the Child Care Project was born
The team in Heidelberg, Germany
The team in Heidelberg tries to sell the garments and donations collected, through regular flea market events, and thus, in addition to the monthly donations, to take money. Another concern of the group is to promote the Child Care Project and to find additional sponsors and supporters. For example, the Child Care Project was represented again this year on the Africa Days and was able to take a large amount of money and win new supporters. The Heidelberg team meets regularly to exchange ideas, develop concepts and plan events. The project is a matter of the heart of all members and has welded the team together.
