Sponsor a Child
Children in Uganda are orphaned for many reasons. Some are abandoned because their families cannot support them or do not want to care for them, some have had parents pass away, and others have been apart of or witnessed tragic events and are taken from their families for their safety. God calls us to care for one another; even more so, to look after the orphaned and widowed. Your tax-deductible contribution of just $40 a month will provide an abandoned child with a safe, loving, Christian-based place in which to thrive.
WHAT DOES MY SUPPORT PROVIDE?
Housing – Our orphanage provides a safe, secure place for orphans to live – a place to belong.
Nutritious food and baby formula.
Medical checkups, which often save lives.
Clothing, including diapers, for ever-growing children.
Staff – Caring Christian staff members who are committed to loving, guiding, and raising children. In addition to caretakers, we employ cooks, grounds-keepers, security, maintenance, and administrative assistants.
HOW LONG DOES MY SUPPORT LAST?
When you choose to care for a child, your support lasts as long as you choose or until the child leaves the orphanage. Some orphans are adopted. Some orphans are united with family members who take them in and some will leave when they come of age. You will be notified if and when your child leaves so you may decide how you want to proceed.
DOES MY MONTHLY DONATION GO DIRECTLY TO THE CHILD I SUPPORT?
Your donation ensures that all of the needs mentioned above are met for your child. However, because the orphanage is a community organization, there are expenses that are not at the individual-only level. For example, we purchase groceries all at one time which requires that we pool donations together to meet the collective needs of all the children in the orphanage.
