Thank you for choosing to join our SPONSORSHIP TEAM and stepping into the life of a vulnerable child, here in Uganda.

Each child has a different story to tell, but one thing they all have in common is the need for unconditional love, education, and mentorship. You can sponsor one of these children with as low as $25 a month (for those in primary school); $50 a month (for those in high school), and $125 a month (for those in college). You can also make a one-time donation of any amount to the sponsorship fund. Your donation will help support their school costs (fees, stationaries, uniforms, etc), clothing, feeding, and healthcare, among others.

When you sponsor a child, you will receive regular progress reports and have an opportunity to exchange letters and share other goodies with them. Best of all, you will foster a lasting connection across borders.

If you and not able to sponsor a child right now, you may as well support our cause by sharing this info with your networks. Connecting a child with a sponsor is a combined effort that requires the input of every loving soul. You too can join us in this cause by making sure this info reaches the people who can step in, to change the lives of these children as SPONSORS.

If you have any questions, please CONTACT us via our email address; info@ecfug.org, We will be glad to help.
