SAVE Foundation
Surf & Skate

WINGS Foundation have supported SAVE Foundation with 50,856 SEK ($6,100* USD) to their Surf & Skate charity programs. The goal is to give the children from the township Dunoon a better alternative after school than a dangerous & violent community. 

"My name is Rowen and I'm from the township called Dunoon. It's not good growing up there because it can turn kids like us into gangsters. Surfing is important to me because it gives me a great experience in life."

Imagine sitting at home in a dangerous township, where after 19.00, things get really ugly. Knives and drugs are common. You live in a shack with no real way to lock your door and sometimes you hear the sound of gunshots through the night. All of the sudden, someone sets your house on fire. This is what happened to Kyle, pictured below. He is 12 years old. His home burned to the ground and he lost everything. A bed to sleep in, identification, school uniform, underwear; the list goes on. Nothing left. His family asked the principal of his school to reach out for help but no one answered. Except WINGS and SAVE. We joined forces and prepared a big care-package consisting of everything that the family needed to get back on their feet. A new school uniform for Kyle, clothes and blankets. New beds and accessories as they were all sleeping on the chilling ground.

Fort Portal, Uganda
WINGS Water Station

WINGS Foundation have donated 42.236 SEK (6.501 AUD) to African Development Aid & ASTCF in order to build a water station that filtrates dirty water into clean, drinkable water for 4.000~ people. A natural spring of water comes into a 5.000 liter tank where we have put several layers of different materials to filtrate the water from the bottom and up. All of the materials are natural, meaning no chemicals added and it still takes away 99,9% of the bacteria. There is one tap for normal use and one outlet releases water in case the tank gets full. As the water is heavy to carry, we built a staircase for the locals to utilize. We also hosted our first volunteer team for more than 53.724 SEK (over 6.500 USD). For our efforts, we have been honored and endorsed by the government of Uganda.

Education & Sports

At one of our partner schools in Sweden, Tibble Gymnasium, a youth company named WINGS Youth fundraised 8.750 SEK (1.000~ USD) during a school year and donated all towards our cause in Rio de Janeiro. For these funds, we have utilized the power of education and football to keep children off the violent streets in the favela Cantagalo through a football program. We purchased 45 backpacks for the youngest 45 kids, each containing: 10 pencils, 1 notebook, 1 pencil case, 1 pencil sharpener, 3 erasers and 1 pen. We also donated 7 footballs, 50 water bottles and a football net to the entire team of 95.

WINGS Foundation
Sports & IT

We have established Pia & Michael’s Sportstation and Eric’s IT-Department, while enhancing the already built ”David’s Library”, with new carpets and books. The sporting station is a playground for everyone and we have used the power of sports to battle gender inequality. Amongst other initiatives, we started WINGS Wednesday for Women as a rule in the school and now the football court is reserved only for women to utilize between 13.20 and 14.00 on Wednesdays. The 15 iPads brings them years forward in this modern world and we have provided 100~ lessons to the teachers and the upper grades. Both the Sportstation and IT-department was made possible due to a fundraiser from Kevingeskolan who engaged their entire school in this initiative.
