Uganda has one of the youngest and most rapidly growing populations in the world. Almost half of the entire population is age 14 years old and under. In addition, the country faces widespread deprivation in the areas of improved sanitation, access to electricity, education (completion and progression) and child malnutrition. It is estimated that 20% of the children in Uganda are orphans. Many of these end up on the streets where they turn to theft, prostitution and drugs to survive.
No one in Uganda can advance economically without an education. It is the key to breaking the cycle of hopelessness so many children become victims of. This is where you have an opportunity to exact change!
Engage Hope’s Sponsor-a-Child program is designed to come alongside these impoverished and abandoned children to help them break through the darkness they live in by providing spiritual guidance and an education. A sponsor’s monthly donation of $35 for a Primary student or $50 for a Secondary student, provides tuition, food and minor medical care as needed. Without a sponsor, most of these children would never be able to attend school.
Engage Hope sponsors have the opportunity to actually form a relationship with their sponsored child. Sponsors receive pictures, letters and report cards from their sponsored child and are encouraged to write and send pictures in return. Sponsors also have the opportunity to meet their child face-to-face on one of the Engage Hope trips. Please see our Short Term Mission Trip section for a calendar of upcoming trips.
For as little as $35 a month, you can give HOPE to a child in need.
It is that easy!!
Thank you for joining us as we seek to provide HOPE and a future for these precious children. On behalf of all of our Ministry Partners, thank you for your support!
