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.
My name, Ayesigu, means trust in God. I live with my mom and dad and have seven siblings. Life at home is difficult. Because we lack money, we have only one meal a day and if one of us becomes sick, it’s a challenge to have enough money to seek treatment. But, like my name means, I trust in God, and hope that with an education, my life will become better. I am entering senior 3. I love my school because the teachers care about us and teach very well. And most of my friends go there. I have always dreamed of becoming an engineer.
Help Ayesigu reach her full potential by sponsoring her schooling for just $25 a month.
I am 16 years old and attend boarding school at Bishop Cypriano. I’m happy to be in boarding school because I am encouraged to study. During my breaks, I join in discussions with other students. My toughest challenge has been understanding everything and maintaining my grades. I overcome these challenges by consulting teachers for help and by developing a spirit of competition. This helps me pull up and improves my grades.
If I wasn't at school, I would be a miserable child who doesn't know how to write or speak English. I would end up being a street child. Someone might be surprised to know that I have hope of becoming an engineer. I want to accomplish my studies and help my parents the way they help me and other people.

"I am 13 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."
For just $25 a month, you can give a young scholar the education needed to empower her to dream and build a better life.
I am 14 years old. I have eight siblings and live with my mother and father and one cousin. I am lucky to attend boarding school where I have more time to pursue my vision. Biology is my favorite subject because I understand it best. I enjoy learning about the animal kingdom and finding out more about animals. I hope to become a veterinarian when I get older so that I can help animals live. I have a pet cat, Jason, who likes to cuddle and catch mice. When I get older, I would like to marry, have two kids, and one cat.
Just $20 a month gives Jane the opportunity to attend boarding school and build a strong future.
