SPONSORING 40 CHILDREN TO GIVE NEW LIFE IN UGANDA

The SCOEN children are very proud to be sponsored. It inspires them to perform well at school, take part in the SCOEN programmes and to be role models in their community. We know from experience that our sponsored children and their family feel protected and valued. Our Child Sponsorship co-ordinator was raised and still lives in slums of soroti and was fortunate to be sponsored as a child by one of our partner organization. Her own experience makes her ideally placed to identify the most vulnerable kids. She runs the programme sensitively and efficiently and it is largely due to her hard work the programme continues to go from strength to strength, but with over 100 children, we do urgently need more sponsors! 

 This program is a vital part of the SCOEN fundraising campaign and throughout the Covid-19 pandemic has become even more important. Regular donors create the sustainability SCOEN needs to confidently plan for the future and to develop and expand the programmes. Throughout 2020 and 2021, the families of sponsored children have received regular food rations. During the strict lockdown the team communicated via WhatsApp, providing educational, physical and recreational content. It was wonderful to see so many children, siblings and even parents joining in.

Child Sponsorship is a proven long-term solution to the systemic problem of children from deprived communities not attending school. Schools remain closed in Uganda todate, so it is even more important to ensure the boys and girls use the development centre and keep up with their education. In particular we are focussing on our girls, who due to the financial hardships created by the pandemic are more at risk of dropping out. 

 

We are immensely proud of all SCOEN children, who are eager to learn, to perform well and make you proud.

Education is vital to breaking the cycle of poverty but school in Uganda is not free. As a Child Sponsor, you will make a huge difference in the life of vulnerable child by giving them the gift of education. 

The cost for sponsoring a child is £25 a month. This is equivalent to £100 per term and there are 3 school terms in per year. This cost covers not only the school fees but also other necessities that the child requires in order to attend school. This includes shoes, uniform, school books, pencils, medical care, school meals and anything else they may need to fully participate in their education. We allocate children to sponsors depending on the needs and family situation of the child, starting with the neediest child first. 

By helping a child to go to school, you are enabling them to break the cycle of poverty and giving them hope for a bright future. If you would like to help make a difference in a child’s life by giving them the gift of education, then we would love you to become a Child Sponsor with us.

Schools I Uganda are back after almost a year. The children in our communities saw their parents lose their livelihoods when the country went into lockdown. A father who cycled a rickshaw or a rag-picker mother were unable to go onto the streets to earn a daily wage. Desperate and hungry the children saw their parents queuing for food parcels and struggling to stretch their meagre rations to feed the family. In March The Pollination Project helped us reach 40 children with food and saitation items

We have a very special cohort of about 50 children who are ambitious to remain in education and to reach for a different life - beyond the slums and squatter camps. These teenagers are particularly vulnerable to dropping out, largely because of social pressures to work or to marry. They need extra support and we are delighted that a number of donors have come forward to sponsor them. Thanks to our sponsors, we have been able to provide additional tuition, books, smartphones, English and computer classes. These children attend Evening Classes in our centres every day after the smaller children have gone home.

Throughout all of this you, our donors, have continued to support these children. When we couldn’t run classes, we were able to provide food parcels. When the centres opened again we were able to bring the children back and help them resume their education. You helped us purchase smartphones for the older children so they could access their classes online and just last week you stepped up again and provided funds so that we can give the children a healthy snack 5 days a week when they attend our classes.

Thank you so much for your continued support. It is needed now more than ever.

Schools closed after the organisation had paid the first installment of school fees and all school requirements. After the closure of schools management decided to continue supporting children with food to help them through the covid 19 as most of the supported children were getting nutritious food from schools.
