Isaac was one of the first children who had the opportunity to get their schooling funded by Julie and Rino Solberg, the founder of Better Globe. A couple of days ago, he married his Deborah and it was planned to coincide with the arrival of our visitors.

When Rino turned fifty over 25 years ago, he and his wife Julie thought about what they wanted to do for the rest of their lives. Julie was absolutely convinced that she wanted to spend her time helping the children in her homeland, Uganda, and give them a better start in life. Together they started the charity organization Child Africa, a registered NGO (non-governmental organization). Over the years, it has helped thousands of children with education and a whole new future.

When you as a customer buy a donation package with trees, a small part of the money goes to construction, renovation and purchase of school buildings, in which Child Africa runs its business. Their activities are financed through grants from both their own sponsors but also through our donation packages. Isaac had the opportunity to benefit from Child Africa already as a young child, and is now an adult with an education, and he wants to pursue a political career in order to have a positive influence on his country.
