How Whisper began

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a simple step. Veronika Cejpkova & Antonio Genco began their epic journey in 2009 traveling extensively through eight countries in Africa integrating with local communities, meeting families, children, elderly people, witnessing how they lived. In order to truly understand what these people were going through. They immersed themselves into their world often traveling on the same shoddy transport to get from one destination to the next. They stayed in a remote village without access to water, electricity, kitchen and bathroom facilities.


Whisper in the media

Whisper's work has been extensively recognised in Uganda. Only for the year of 2013, Whisper appeared on international Ugandan TV WBS, where the documentary focused on the jigger flea problem, highlighting the help we offer in rural villages.

The widest sold New Vision newspapers also got attracted to write about two different stories from our work, that deeply touched hundreds of people's hearts.


The country

Uganda is described as a green land with its beautiful valleys and hills mostly in the south-west at the source of the Nile - the world's longest river which flows northwards to Egypt.


Daily life

Bellow is a description of typical day to day life in the commu-nities we serve in Uganda.
