Summary

This project will provide sponsorships to over 40 children living in poverty in rural Uganda.

Challenge

Every year, thousands of Ugandan children do not have access to schools or are not able to attend due to high school fees. Without access to an education, children are more vulnerable to the effects of poverty including childhood marriage, teenage pregnancies, inadequate healthcare, malnutrition, and low paying jobs.

Solution

Mountains of Hope seeks sponsorships to provide an education for 40 children living in single-parent impoverished households. Education is a fundamental component of breaking the cycle of poverty because it provides children with opportunities and access to resources in the future. With the constant support of Mountains of Hope, each child has the option to continue on to university, find well-paying jobs, obtain better healthcare, and provide for themselves and their families.

Long-Term Impact

We will ensure that 40 children receive a well-rounded and strong education so they can grow up to be knowledgeable and prepared contributors to their communities and our world. Mountains of Hope also knows that no child can be successful on their own. That's why we support the whole community by distributing water filters, healthy food, and other services so that they can support the child all throughout their education. Through the holistic approach, we will create lasting change.
