1 Euro Campaign

Even with the smallest amounts you can effect great change. As of the day I’m updating this post, we have only 46 followers on Twitter, but if each of them had donated just one euro per month to one of our projects, the aggregate amount could already buy all the bricks and timber needed to build the guest house of the Safe Project orphanage.

One euro is only slightly over one dollar. Not everyone can afford it, but if you can, please set up a subscription to donate one euro (or optionally more) per month to one of our projects.

Here are a few simple ways to do so.


Once more, Betterplace is a great help. Just go to the Your Siblings donation page, enter the amount, and select “monthly” instead of “once” before completing the donation.


If for some reason you cannot use Betterplace but you have a Flattr account, then you can set up a Flattr subscription for us. Just open the Flattr page of our website (or scroll to the bottom of this page), and after flattring us, select “Subscribe.”

Bank transfer

Finally, you can also, of course, set up an ordinary standing order ...

Report: Another Hope, Uganda, January 2011

In January this year, I visited the orphanage Another Hope again. We had been in contact ever since I visited them last year. I wanted to make some videos and finish the concept of how Your Siblings could support Another Hope, considering our criteria. In the beginning we had the plan to expand the existing chicken farm, so they could make enough profit to cover the monthly costs of the orphanage.

After reflecting over the expansion, Ruth (the founder of Another Hope) realized that this plan was not going to work out. The farm had to be big enough to take care not only of school fees for the kids, but food for them and rent as well. This is a lot of money and the plan was not well thought out. A much better solution would be to build a house owned by Another Hope itself, to take off the biggest cost factor. A slightly smaller chicken farm would still take care of the basic needs. The property on which the farm was built and where the new house is going to be build already belongs to Another Hope. The detailed plan for this lasting project can be viewed ...
