Student Sponsorship Program
Give a child a chance for a quality education!
One of the many plights facing the nation of Uganda is the enormous amount of children who lack opportunity to get an education. There is a great population of children and youth who are orphaned or in vulnerable situations due to the HIV/AIDS epidemic, internal conflicts and extreme poverty.
If you ask the average child in Uganda what his greatest desires are, immediately that child will say that his greatest desire is to go to school. Most of the children attending our church live in the urban slums of Bukasa in Kampala. Because of the extreme poverty most parents are unable to pay the school fees and purchase the scholastic materials that are required for their children to attend school. As we all know, education is essential for literacy, empowerment and economic growth. It is also a key to child survival and the healthy development of the next generation. In Uganda, and around the world, every child has the right to get an education. However, many stay at home because their families cannot afford school fees.
We believe CHILDREN DESERVE A CHANCE! Project Chance Uganda is our ministry to vulnerable children and youth. One of our ministry projects through Project Chance is to offer education through the payment of school fees for orphaned and disadvantaged children within the Muyenga- Bukasa community where we work as an organization. We seek to find partners and donors who will be willing to sponsor one of our children through the payment of school fees. We are currently seeking sponsorship for fifty children and youth. The student’s eligible for sponsorship are children currently attending our village church (Agape Christian Church International) in Bukasa. For $150 - $250 a year, you can send a child to school for a year. Cost varies per child because some of the children attend government schools which are over populated, and others attend church schools which are a bit more expensive. School fees for our secondary age students range from $300 - $450 per year. These costs include the required school uniforms and administrative fees.
The school year in Uganda begins in February and they have three terms within the year. We are trusting God, to have school fees for all of our children so that they are able to go to school in 2013. CHILDREN NEED TO GO TO SCHOOL! Let’s make it happen! Contact us today to learn more about sponsoring a child and help to Rescue the Next Generation!
