Child Sponsorship: Change a Life Forever

You can make a difference. Most of the younger children needing sponsors are children of our women’s group members in Agwata in northern Uganda. The women themselves have helped build the school for these children since the school is one of a handful of “parent supported” primary schools in northern Uganda. It is the most successful such school in Lamwo district of Uganda.  Most families at this school live on less than $1 per day. They can barely feed their families so it is a struggle to pay the required costs to keep the school running and to keep their students in school. Help from our Child Sponsorship program makes all the difference!

Your Child Sponsorship Means a Child Can Go to school!

Your child sponsorship payment helps pay the teachers at the school, buy curriculum materials, school supplies and equipment, required uniforms, and provide some supplemental food for the child. At your option, you may also correspond via letters with your sponsored child to encourage them in their studies, and help them to become successful students.  Besides letters, you can send additional paper items such as photos, postcards, stickers and coloring pages. As part of the child sponsorship program, your sponsored child will keep you updated by writing to you three times per year.

Sponoring a Child is Easy

Older girls, especially need sponsors.

Nancy was fortunate to find a sponsor in 2014 so that she can continue her schooling. We currently have 8 older girls who urgently need sponsors in order to stay in school.

Just choose one of  our children awaiting sponsors, and add them to your shopping cart. You can choose annual, term or monthly payment options. Within ten days, you will receive your sponsorship packet in the mail. You can exchange letters with your child, and also send them your photo and other paper items. If you prefer a child of a specific age that you do not see listed, please call or email us as we do have additional students needing sponsors.

For older children, especially girls, sponsorship is especially important.  Secondary school (7th to 12th grades) is much more costly than primary school because students must board at the schools. If a family can afford to send only one child to secondary school, then they usually will choose a boy child.  We have promised the girls in our Girls’ Education Initiative program, that if they successfully complete primary school, we will find sponsors for as many of them as possible.  Please help us make that a reality for as many girls as possible.
