Currently we are running two programs on the ground in Uganda.
Child Sponsorship Program
Started in November 2014 this program matches donors from around the world with children in the village of Musima who desperately want to go to school and get an education. Currently there are 250 children in our program. Education is a precious gift to the children of Uganda, unlike schools in the United States, schools in Uganda are not free and families have to make the decision between food and education for their children. No parent should have to make that decision. By becoming a sponsor parent, you have the amazing opportunity to build a relationship with your child through letters and photos. You receive your child’s report card each school term where you are able to see how they are doing in school. For more information on this program click here
Acholi Quarter Feeding Program
Started in June 2014. Numerous studies in the US show that children perform better in school when they have breakfast, however, many children in Uganda go to school hungry. We started this program with only 50 children, that number increased to 100 by the end of the first week, we are currently feeding over 350 children a hot porridge breakfast each weekday. For some, this is the only meal they have.
