Pastor David Wafula is 38 years old and is one of the prime movers of 22STARS. He has been helping Stella developing the idea of a company since 2009, after they met during a church session in Kampala. David is our ambassador in Uganda and with his help we were able to visit the women in the Acholi Quarters at their homes and listen to their stories. Thanks to David the first group of eleven high-spirited and motivated designers was selected. The group exists of strong women with a lot of positive energy and creativity in them. They are all different and that adds a little extra to the group to keep it in balance. David is the connection between Uganda and the Netherlands and Uganda. He makes sure that the orders get to the designers and monitors their general life to see if they are doing okay. He overviews the production and quality of the jewellery and sends them to the Netherlands.David’s first profession was actually teaching. He also holds a Bachelor degree in Theology and a masters degree in Organizational Leadership and Management. For 22STARS project David visits the designers and gives them support and counselling and manages the activities, such as Income Generating Activities (IGA), Music Dance and Drama classes (MDD), training and education. Each Sunday you can find David and his wife Aida, their three little daughters and son in the church, where David preaches. In his spare time David loves to sing and dance and telling jokes making other people laugh.
