Our sponsorship program will support children through school in Uganda. Sponsored children are from the poorest families, who are in most need, without sponsorship for school, these children would drop out of school. They, and their families would continue in the cycle of poverty. Sponsorships enable them to change that. Sponsorships give these children a way to escape poverty through education.
Costs are the biggest barrier to children completing basic education in Uganda, costs include school entry fees, building fees, teacher fees, extra class fees, materials, equipment, uniforms and shoes. In Uganda, fees vary depending on area, lessons and school. We ask for $40 USD a month to support each child through school, administered and monitored through our staff.
Escaping poverty through education is what we mean, we focus on providing education to children so they can grow up to break the cycle of poverty in their family. Just sponsoring one child and helping them complete school can be a change that impacts the same family for generations.
The cycle of poverty offers only bleak future of dropping out of school, meaning children simply compete for jobs against graduates. Giving a child the opportunity to access education means their future is in their hands. They can compete with other high school graduates and carve out their own futures with something that is essential in finding work - a graduation certificate.
