Moris has always been an exceptional student. Hard-working, focused, Moris knew he wanted a life that was different from his parents. Without a formal education, his mom labors in a stone quarry while his father does carpentry work. His parnts lacked the funds to pay his school fees, so Project Have Hope stepped in.
A graduate of our scholastic sponsorship program, Moris is now attending Uganda Technical College in Lira, in Northern Uganda, where he is studying water engineering. He is hoping to learn practical skills which will enable him to improve the water quality and availability for his fellow Ugandans. We're so proud of his accomplishments and his tenacity at striving to make his dreams a reality. For just $25, you can help a young scholar fulfill his dreams.
My name is Cecilia. I am 14 years old and the youngest in my family. I have one sister and one brother, neither of them go to school. I do not like missing lessons, so I am eager to go to school every day. It is important to me to go to a school where the teachers are good and they have time for the students. When you have knowledge, you can excel in life. I hope to become an accountant. It’s easy to get a job if you know how to manage business. I have a dream of finishing my studies and getting a god job. Then I will construct a house for my mother. And once I have a good job, I also want to help the needy, so I can support someone like someone has supported me.
Help Cecilia and children like her reach their full potential by becoming a sponsor for just $25 a month.
"I am the middle child and I have an older and a younger brother. My mother is a widow and cares for our family herself. I am in secondary school and attend St. Kizito. I like the school very much because they have all the equipment and books needed to study well. They are morally upright. I am Acholi, but I have many friends at school from different backgrounds and tribes. I am committed to my studies and hope to complete well. I have hope of becoming an accountant."
For just $25 a month, you can sponsor Teddy's tuition and give a young scholar a chance for a brighter future.
I am 7 years old. My mother left me with my grandmother. She is old, but she tries her best to care for me. I like playing football (American soccer) with my friends. My favorite food is beans and rice. And pink is my favorite color.
For just $25 a month, you can sponsor Albert's tuition at Creamland Primary School.
For 12 years, with your help, we have been giving the gift of education to children in Uganda's Acholi Quarter. Many of our "children" aren't exactly kids anymore and are choosing to switch to vocational training programs which give them skills and greater opportunities for their futures.
We are proud to have students pursuing auto mechanics, catering, tailoring, painting & design, and travel & tourism.
We dream about a better tomorrow, and with your help, we're making dreams come true.
As we complete our 12th year of dream-making in Uganda's Acholi Quarter, here at Project Have Hope, we're feeling pretty proud. Specifically, proud of Jotham, a graduate of our sponsorship program, who always dreamed of becoming a doctor. He wanted to help those in his community. He wanted to make a difference. He is currently in his third year of medical school and is interning at a health clinic in the Acholi Quarter.
Jotham's success would not be possible without donors, like you, who believe in the power of education to transform one's life and provide the tools to build a better world.
We ask you to help us to continue to make a difference in the lives of the young scholars we sponsor.
