CSR – Foodstep Uganda

Flemish couple Nathalie and Werner and Dutch lady Mariska have made it their mission to take children from the children’s prison in the Ugandan capital of Kampala and bring them into their own refuge: the Foodstep Home. In addition, they do everything in their power to improve living conditions in the children’s prison and offer all kids a bright future.

Upgraded even visited non-profit project Foodstep Uganda itself and was able to see with its own eyes all the things that the project has already been able to achieve. The impact of this project’s sponsors is undeniable.

Upgraded is therefore happy to make its own contribution to help out the organisers with the further expansion of a warm home. That is why we give our customers the choice of gifting €1 per trip or m+eating participant. We double that amount and are happy to donate it to this fantastic project.
