SPONSOR A CHILD

Why children need sponsoring:
Many of the children in our program have lost one or both parents, others have parents who are ill and unable to work.  In Uganda it is not the usual practice for families to send children to orphanages if grandparents, aunts, uncles, or family friends can take them in. These family units are the ones we serve.  In these homes resources are stretched just to provide food and shelter.  Paying school fees is beyond their ability.


What is the cost of sponsoring a child?
$455 per year pays tuition, daily meals at school, and a uniform.  We collect tuition in September and October each year.  We also like to have sponsors send a little extra for a small gift, or to buy school supplies. 


How are children selected?  
Deacons of partner churches in Uganda identify the neediest children in their communities. 

Sponsored children receive  school uniforms, daily meals and education in a Christian school, the involvement and love of the local church community, mentoring from a local representative, and help from our full-time Ugandan director for any problems.  And they are so grateful to know that someone cares enough to provide funds to make this possible.  

Older Children:  We sometimes have children who have been unable to start school when they were young, others whose sponsors had to stop and they need a sponsor to continue, and a few with special needs who need more than one sponsor to meet those needs. These children will have priority over beginning students, but you will be given a choice for your preference when signing up as a sponsor.

Your commitment and involvement:  Sponsoring is a year to year commitment, renewal forms are mailed every September.  We but of course we hope that sponsors will build a long term relationship with students, sending photos and letters from your family to get to know one another.   

About our organization:  UCSP is a Christian ministry,  We have one employee, our Ugandan director.  All others, the U.S. team members and director, and representatives from partnering churches in Uganda are volunteers in this ministry. 

Our commitment to you:  Each year we will send you an update on your child's progress at home and at school, You will receive a letter and photos from your sponsored child as well.  

Accountability:  Each year our director goes to Uganda to visit with students, parents, guardians and the field director and program volunteers. Often she will take a team and sponsors are invited.

If you would like to become a sponsor, please email us and provide your name and phone number so we can contact you.  Our Director, Sue, will call to discuss assignment of a child and our payment options.
