For Digital Nomads, Entrepreneurs, Artists and Change-makers
3 WEEKS OF A LIFETIME
Reconnect with nature, connect with local communities and make a difference! Uganda has many talented people, learn from each other and grow together. With this trip, you will not only leave Uganda having made an impact on many people’s life, but it will also be a positive life changing experience for you.
You spend two weeks in buzzling Kampala and one week in Jinja, the adventure town for adrenaline junkies and nature freaks. Our first weekend trip will be OFFLINE camping in Murchison Falls National Park, spotting wild animals and hiking around the waterfall.
Every week we will have two mastermind sessions according to the FLAKS model to which Ugandan entrepreneurs and start-ups are invited for free. Each session will offer you a combination of brainstorming, education, peer accountability and support to sharpen your business and personal skills.
Twice a week we will visit the 22STARS projects in the field and show you how you can make an impact. Besides city tours and fun stuff, you will have free time to get your own work done!
With the Workation we support the 22STARS families with food.
We raise money for the 22STARS KIDS foundation for medicine, food, clothes and school fees.
We exchange skills with local entrepreneurs during the mastermind sessions and project visits, to get our businesses to the next level.

Digital Nomad empowering families in Uganda through fashion and design!
Stella is the founder of 22STARS and wants to inspire others to think about the impact they can make with their business. Stella has a master degree in International Law and Human Rights and Democratization. Her studies brought her to Africa where she interviewed refugees in Kampala, Uganda. Some of these women, mainly widows and HIV positive, made jewelry out of recycled paper. In order to have an impact, Stella started to buy this jewelry to sell it to her friends in the Netherlands. The project evolved: there is now a professional brand, 2 production units and a sponsor project for school fees of the children. Stella started making the designs herself and incorporates elements from different cultures in her collections. When Stella is not in Uganda, she travels the world, alone or with her friends from the digital nomad community.
