With your help, Ruth will know she’ll always be able to attend school.
Ruth is determined to overcome heartbreaking tragedy and poverty. After both of her parents died from AIDS, Ruth came to live with her grandmother, who sells charcoal to help support a full house of seven children who are now under her care. But her grandmother often cannot afford school fees, which means Ruth’s school attendance has been interrupted often until fees can be found.

“I am working hard so that I get a first grade in my final exams.”
Dan is determined. When he first entered Children of Uganda’s sponsorship program, academics was not his strong suit. He loved to play sports. But Dan decided his dream of being a teacher would happen only if he worked hard. So he turned around and poured his efforts into school. Dan is currently in Primary 7, which means he will take his Primary Leaving Examinations this year. He is performing well in all subjects and his goal is to graduate with top marks. No pressure. You can help.
We help you give a hand UP to Ugandan children and women in need + share the joy.
Each child who is educated, fed and safe is a strong foundation for peace.
Each self-supporting woman makes a community thrive. Each beat of music carries the joy of a nation.
