Here is what some of our existing sponsors have to say when posed the question, “What would you say to someone considering sponsorship?”
This is the estimate of the total number of orphans around the world today. This number does not include an estimated 2-8+ million orphans in institutions, living on the streets, exploited for labor, victims of trafficking, or manipulated into participating in armed groups.
In Uganda alone, a small country of 46 million people, estimates put the orphan population at over 2 million. Over 2 million children without basic provision, uncertain of their future, without hope.
Child sponsorship will send a child to school where they will receive food, shelter, and a great education.
The school terms in Uganda function on a trimester basis:
Throughout the sponsorship you can talk first hand to your child through the use of letters, and you will be amazed at how these kids will love you and end up encouraging you as much as you encourage them!
You can sponsor a child monthly ($35), per term ($140), or yearly ($420).
To join our family as a sponsor, click below to submit the sponsorship inquiry form. Our leadership team will reach out to establish a dialogue with you and explain the options for sponsorship as well as review the process in more detail.
If paying monthly, the $35 is due by the 10th of every month. The money for term payments ($140.00 each term) needs to be received by the 10th of each month due: January 10, May 10, and September 10. If you would like to pay the $420.00 annually, the leadership team will work with you to coordinate the yearly payment date. Funds can be sent via postal mail service or using the online giving portal at V127.org/give.
A school report will be emailed each trimester with an update of the student’s progress in the school in which he/she is currently enrolled. The sponsor can write to the sponsored child at any time and it will be forwarded via email once the leadership team receives the correspondence. Email communication is being utilized as much as possible to keep administrative costs to a minimum.
Your sponsorship is an ongoing commitment that helps your sponsored child throughout their educational journey. We would ask you to not take this commitment lightly. Pray about it. Search your heart and see if this is where the Lord would have you honor Him with a portion of your income. If two consecutive monthly payments are not received and there is no form of communication regarding the reasons or circumstances, then it will be considered a hardship for the sponsor. At this point, another sponsor will be pursued to ensure that the child in Uganda receives consistent food, shelter, and education. If at any time you are unable to continue your sponsorship, please email/contact us and let us know. God always provides for His children!
All of your sponsorship fees go directly to Uganda to support your sponsored child’s future. We work hard to keep our administrative costs as low as possible and support the administrative functions of our organization through donors that choose to donate specifically to that purpose.
