Julie Solberg. The Courageous Lady
Julie Solberg’s dream about helping children in Africa became the reality and today is the NGO Child Africa. Julie grew up in Norway, where she met her husband Rino Solberg. After sponsoring about 10 children in Uganda for some time Julie and Rino Solberg decided to include their family and friends, in order to make a greater impact and help more children
In 1991, the couple started “Solberg Children Help Organization”, a private entity. All donations given by sponsors went directly to the children to pay for school fees and books. There was no money for administration, so the Solberg’s worked together with Julie’s family and friends in Uganda; everybody’s time was given on voluntarily.
All work was dependant on the people’s good hearts and will to help.
In 2002, Child Africa’s first university student graduated from Makerere University in Kampala. Aisha Kugunda was sponsored through Child Africa for almost 10 years before she graduated. In 2011, three more Child Africa children graduated from Universities in Uganda. The Child Africa sponsorship program helps children from kindergarten until a qualification is obtained, be it at university or vocational college. Thus, giving a child a future and the ability to help their family and fellow countrymen.
