SPONSOR A CHILD

Sponsoring a child is one of the most incredible gifts you can give. Due to poverty, many chidren are denied an education, limiting their futures and perpetuating a cycle of poverty. Providing a child with access to an education opens up options for their future and empowers them with options and knowledge. We have many options for sponsorship and we encourage sponsors to know the children they are helping. Sponsorship starts at $2 a day.

IN NEED OF SPONSORS

We have many children in need of sponsors currently, please contact us for more information on each of the children and how you can get involved.

MDU BOYS HOME

These boys are all part of our boys home in Mutungo. They all have different circumstances but many have run away from home due to poverty, abuse or death of family. They have been living on the streets but are now safe in a house where they are receiving basic education, food, medical care and lots of love!

They are all anxious to get sponsors so the can go to school, some of them for the first time. Please contact us for more information on the individual children. 

Update: All of the boys have sponsors!! There are still many children who need sponsors. Please contact us or more information.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

HOW LONG CAN I SPONSOR A CHILD FOR?


There is no set time as it depends on what you are able to offer and the age of the child and what level of school they are in. We do encourage people to think seriously about sponsorship with the aim to make it a long term commitment.




HOW DOES THE CHILD BENEFIT FROM SPONSORSHIP?


Without sponsorhsip the child may not be able to attend school. This limits their future prospects. When you sponsor a child they are able to receive food, education, social interaction and they are given the gift of a future. For these children the relationship to a sponsor also provides them with hope and confidence in themselves and engrains the importance of education.




WHAT ARE THE COSTS INVOLVED?


With our child sponsorship program 100% of the money goes to the child's education, this money is for the school fees, cost of boarding where relevant and their uniform and requirements. We do not make any money off child sponsorship and provide receipts for all money spent. In Uganda even children only attending school during the day are required to provide things like sugar, toilet paper and school supplies. These costs will be clearly outlined.




HOW DO I KNOW THE MONEY IS REALLY GOING TO THE CHILD I SPONSOR?


We provide you with receipts, photos and consistent updates. Many sponsors enjoy seeing the children's reports and progress at school which we are happy to share with you also. All the children we support through sponsorship are known to us and sponsorship is done in conjunction with the family of the child.




CAN I GET TO KNOW MY SPONSOR CHILD?


We encourage sponsors to know their sponsor child if they choose to. Often the child and family want to share with the sponsor about the child's progress and milestones.




CAN I SHARE THE COST ON SPONSORSHIP WITH SOMEONE?


Yes, of course! Some people find the cost of sponsorship a barrier, but you can easily share the cost with family or friends whatever way you choose.




CAN I CHOOSE WHERE THE CHILD GOES TO SCHOOL?


Usually we work with the child, the family and locals who know the best school for the child to attend. Where they have previously been at school and stopped due to money we prioritise them returning to a school they are familiar with. Boarding school is very common here, and due to distance it is often preferred for children in the later years of primary and secondary school.
