Single Spark

Countless men and women living in Northern Uganda have been mutilated and traumatised in the war. Besides their aching scars, they suffer from lack of self-esteem and don’t have the means to support themselves. To tackle these problems, Luc van Hoeckel developed ‘Single Spark’ a starter kit for the production of ointment – not only to ease the pain, but also as an economic impulse. Starting up a small scale operation to make and market this cream will generate an income and increase autonomy. The concept has multiple applications, says Luc: “It could also work for other products, like bread, baskets, juices and honey.”
