Why Kids Need Sponsors



10:31 am   Dec 19, 2012

Kids who have sponsors have more confidence. You may be the only person who encourages them.
They know if they have a sponsor they can't be sent away from school because no one
pays their fees, so they worry less. They also meals at schools so they have to go hungry like some
do at home. They are so happy to have a sponsor and they remember their sponsor by name and pray for them daily.


Below are stories about a few of the kids in our sponsorship program. You can see they all
are like most kids their age but they really enjoy school and the work hard at everything they do.
Sponsor a child today by clicking on our Donate button to give with pay pal.

Joan N.

What an amazing and highly entertaining, kind and fun young girl she is. She is one of the most talkative, chipper little people ever. She's a typical 12 year old who loves Justin Bieber,  Nicki Minaj & Harry Potter. One thing that is different about her is that she lives in a modest home in a slum in Uganda. Her mom does not care about her and appears to have abandoned the family. Her dad does not help her and she is living with her grandma who tries hard to provide for Joan, and her siblings/cousins. She has a step-mom that she really likes which is rare in Uganda, typically step parents are mean or abusive to kids who aren't their own.  




Charity  Another wonderful little girl. She's 9 years old.I  sponsor her brother. Her family lives in a 1 room home. They moved out of their previous home which wasn't any bigger because rent was too high.Typical rent costs $20-$25 a month in their area. Her mom does simple work like working in other people's gardens. She even sent her kids to an orphanage a few years ago because she thought they would be cared for there, but they weren't. They suffered a lot a few years ago before Charity got a sponsor and a chance to attend school. She has many friends now. 



Oliver!
She is one of the happiest, kindest little girls ever. She has no parents and lives her grandma who takes care of as many as 9-10 other orphaned kids depending on the time of year. The grandma lives in a habitat for humanity house and can't pay rent so they may evict her soon. Oliver told me she didn't even have a plate so she would not be able to eat lunch unless she shares a plate/bowl with another student. Her family doesn't have much at all. She is in grade 5 and is such an amazing dancer and singer and is so lucky to be sponsored.


Jolly Paul
This wonderful little boy lost his parents in 2009 and 2010. He lives with uncle most of the time in 1 tiny room. He said his grandma is the only one who cares about him. He wrote his 1st letter to me almost 2 years ago which said "I am crying while writing this" I asked him a few weeks ago why he was sad then and he said it was because he had just lost his parents at that time. He's real shy but 3rd in his class of 23 " 7th  graders".   With his intelligence he can do whatever he chooses with the help of kind donors like his sponsor. 


Umar  is a 13 year old boy who has the highest cutest voice I've ever heard. He was #1 in grade 7 and got to give a good but loooong graduation speech. He basically thanked every single person in the room. He is one of the most polite, sweet and kind kids ever.
 He has qualities that I've never seen in boys in America. Also in his speech he told all his classmates to "Put God first" and everything else will come. Also something I've never heard a teen boy in my area say.  I've never seen Umar get mad at anyone.
 He smiles ALL the time and the other kids nicknamed him "Smile Machine" because he's so happy. He has a mom who works far away from their village so he lives most of the time with his aunt in a small 2 room home.

The Most Needy , Help change a life.

6:53pm 9/8/16

We have registered new kids into our program and we've

 been able to 
take food to this large group when I visit twice a year,
but its clear THEY NEED SO MUCH MORE! 
 You can clearly see the need in the video It seems to be one large family and a few neighbors (30 or so people in total) . All these people fit into just 3-4 small homes. So 20 kids will be needing a sponsor for school (those who are old enough to join school ) this typically age 3 and above. Lots of them are staying at home because their relatives can't afford to pay anything for them to attend school, they have a time affording even food and clothing .
Sharing this blog post will be of great help . Anyone is welcome to make a 1 time donation to help with food and clothes for this very desperate group of people. Their clothes are 
only rags. Any assistance given is greatly appreciated . See their happy faces below for simple gifts.











WE NEED AN EMERGENCY FUND!

April 2, 2017 4:33 pm

We've had so many illness within our org recently.
Kids getting sick , parents being injured on motorbikes, many people getting malaria from the
rainy season. One child with HIV is very sick right now and needs to be hospitalized but
we've always tried to use $100 of a child's school fee for that certain student. Funds can't be prioritized for other more urgent things If a family loses a house (and typical rent for our families per month is $10-$50) and we could help them for a month or 2 to get settled. Some families have emergency food needs
So if anyone would like to donate to this fund this would be great. The needs are so vast and can't be covered through monthly sponsorship (which is tuition and meals only)

If someone doesn't want to help a child monthly why not give an occasional gift of $10 or $20
Typical hospital costs range from $20-$100 this is far from what a poor Ugandan family can afford. With our help this can save a life.

Very Needy Village help for $15 a month!

9:53 am This area is called Kiwolera

a small village in Kamuli , Uganda where we serve 6 or 7 families and nearly 30 kids live there.
Only about 5 have a sponsor at this time.
Most homes have a dirt floor and many kids were sleeping on straw mats or tiny pieces of old foam as you see below. That's their tiny bed. LETS GET A FEW MORE SPONSORED SINCE
School begins this week and there is a drought and high food prices. $15 a month helps 1 student stay in school. These families are all simple farmers raising greens or sweet potatoes.
The harvests are small because of the intense daily heat and nearly 6 weeks with no rain .
