In cooperation with the British NGO Alongside Africa, a group of students from the Faculty of Architecture and the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geodesy designed the Amasiko-transit home for children from the streets. The building has two bedrooms for a total of 16 children, an administrative space, sanitary facilities and a separate kitchen, which will provide users with daily food. With the mentors a group of students went to Uganda to build a building planned throughout the year. They were accompanied by local workers, who helped with physically demanding tasks on the construction site.
