Sponsor a Secondary School Child - £25 per month

The children at our schools are very poor, many cannot afford school fees, or uniforms, or even the books to write in. Please help us to help them by sponsoring one of our young people. By sponsoring a child through Love In Action you are paying for the education of a child in Uganda. This sponsorship covers school fees, uniform, school requirements and pays for a school lunch every day.

Before you choose a child you need to know 3 things!

1. When you have chosen a child and sent in a form, within a few days you will receive a picture of your child with up to date information.
2. As the child will be dependant on your sponsorship we ask that you are faithful in your commitment, and regular in your payments. This is a serious commitment as each child appreciates his/her sponsor very much.
3. We will ensure that the money that you give will be delivered into the hands of people that we trust, and will be used for the benefit of the sponsored children.

We provide letters, photos, and school reports on our web site for you to look at and print out. For each child you sponsor approx. 10% goes towards Administration costs in Uganda the rest is spent on Child Sponsorship. Currently the administration work in the UK occurs very little costs and is covered by volunteers. Copies of our accounts are available on request.


Please note: While you have a named sponsored child all sponsorship money (including Gift Aid) is pooled in order to provide education for children in Uganda,  this ensures that all the children in our care are provided for and benefit from your support.

These children are all in Secondary School, sponsorship is £25 per month (or more).
Please note: We accept multiple sponsors for these young people up to £25 per month to enable them to go to school. Sometime their guardians are able to help a little.

School: LIA Christian Secondary School
Class: S3
Gender: Female
Age: 17 Years Old
Ambitions:


Child's situation: Edith is sixteen years old in senior one, she lives at makonzi with her aunt Namayanja mabel. Her father is called Musoke Godfrey and her mother is not known to her, both parents died when she was very young leaving her in the care of her aunt. Edith has never got a chance of experiencing parental love due to the fact that she grew up as an orphan. Her aunt has other children of her own she takes care of, making it difficult to give Edith all the necessary requirements she may need. This family earns a living through a small restaurant which cooks basically local food, but the income got out of this is not fit to sustain this whole family. Edith wants to study so much because she wants to be an important person in future but she is not so sure about her future because her aunt is very poor to help her achieve her dream of becoming a teacher some day.

2017
School: Other School
Class: S6
Gender: Female
Age: 20 Years Old
Ambitions: Not know yet


Child's situation: Feb 09 She now well compared to the last few months where she had developed chicken pox and its effect was really big. A number of children around her home had also been infected, but she is now ok. Nusiifa’s mother looked a little bit weak as she said she had just recovered from malaria. The rest of the children are ok, her step father Mr. Sunday is still riding bodaboda ( motocycles hired to carry people) She has grown taller and more responsible. Her mother says that she encourages her to do all the tasks assigned to her by her mother daily with out waiting to be asked. She loves to take care of all her young ones and her mum added; if she goes out, she feels very safe to leave the young ones with the care of Nusifa. As communicated before that the mother had given birth to twins, one of them died after having suffered from consistent malaria , yet they hadn’t sufficient medical care. But otherwise, she is well and we hope they will get on well through out this year. 02/12/2016 Nayiga is getting done with her final Examinations this month. When secondary school has been completed, there is always a thought of University. Since she is going to have this long holiday, She was advised to wisely think of something else to do to add value to her university studies according to our Counseling if she wishes to join and also help her mother during this long holiday.

Age: 20 Years Old
Ambitions: Wants to become a business man


Child's situation: Feb 09 They are all ok, they are very greatful for the sponsorship rendered to their son and they really appreciate the education that Ziwa is attaining at school. They (parents) trust that Ziwa would be of a great help as an elder son to their family when he grows older and especially through being responsible for his young ones. At the time of our visitation in their home (social workers) he was just on his way from the garden, with 2 jackfruits, cassava and beans, loaded on the bicycle. He is such a hard working boy. He has a great attachment to his father, they very often walk together and work together in the garden and he is a free boy. Last year in August was 12 years, his young sister whom he goes with at the same school- Josephine is 10,Melidah is now 8 and Immaculate is 3 now. She can now run and make noise all around the place. The mother says, she is a great joy to the whole family. 02/12/2016 Ziwa is finally done with his A' Level Examinations. When secondary school has been completed, students are sent to national training camp before going to either college, or military training but he has been given good confidential discussion counseling with the (LIA) social worker team we hope our Counseling will help him through. During this long holiday Ziwa and the family we hopefully think of something else to do to add value to his university studies if he wishes to join.

25 Najjemba Annet


2016
School: Kijjabwemi secondary
Class: S4
Gender: Female
Age: 19 Years Old
Ambitions: She wants to become a lawyer.


Child's situation: March 09 She lives with an Aunt and her husband. She is being cared for very well and she looks healthy. Her aunt had 12 children all of them are still alive though she lives with only 4 of them, others live with their relatives and others live on their own as they were married off at a very early age due to the hard circumstances that they were going through. This Auntie has no source of income but entirely depends on farming and her husband. Annet lost her mother at the age of 8 and these memories are still very fresh in her life. In fact, a couple of days ago, we (social workers) were doing home visits around Kyetume when we realized that some one had died in the area. Traditionally, it's respectful for local people to attend a burial ceremony regardless of whether you know the deceased or not, as long as they reside in that same locality. So we had to go up for burial with Annet, since we work with in the same area. As the young girl over the death of her dear mother, covered in tears, Annet took my hand-looked in my eyes and said, I was exactly like that when my mother died, people were all around me, trying to stop me from screaming, I could not believe that I was not to see my mother again, but now I feel sorry for that girl too, because she is now like me. I was so thrilled by her narration, we encouraged her, she became cheerful again and I trust that God is helping her get over it as time goes on. However, she has a good relationship with her Auntie. Some of her jobs at home are, fetching water and tiding the compound. 05/12/2016 Najjemba is done with her O’ Level Examinations and she is very happy that she is done. When senior four is completed, there is always a thought of A’ level and then University. But we hope that Najjemba and her grandmother plus other family members will help her to choose wisely and according to our Counseling, we hope she will be able to do something better. Annet was advised to stay home, to avoid bad peers that can lead her into temptations and also to obey her grandmother by helping her around with domestic work since it is a long holiday.

Gender: Female
Age: 18 Years Old
Ambitions: She wants to become a health worker.


Child's situation: Feb 09 A week before we visited her home, she was ill with malaria and was rushed to the hospital but now she’s ok. Slyvia’s dad is called Mugisha Edward and the mother is Kayitesi. They live in Kyetume, which is of a great help to Sylvia. Sylvia is the first child, followed by Caesar, then Irene and Stella. They are all nice looking and lovely children. They have 1 cow at home. March 09 Currently Sylvia is well unlike in the past few days when she was so sick, suffering from malaria. The rest of her family is well and healthy. Both parents are still alive and stay together. They still do the farming and carry on with their small shop to sustain their family. Sylvia is growing taller and she has become more assertive. She loves asking lots and lots of questions-and she will never leave without being answered appropriately. As the big girl, she assumes a lot of responsibility over her young siblings, and one could easily see this especially at school since she goes to the same school as them. She belongs to a culture which is well known for cattle keeping in Uganda (Banyankole) they normally keep herds of cattle, although her parents can't afford to have all these, they only have one cow which was given to them by a friend. But Sylvia says, when she grows up, she wants to be a rich lady, owning heads and heads of cattle so that her family will always have enough to give away especially for her young brother's dowry. 'I enjoyed her story as we had a chat over this in the presence of her mum'. 02/12/2016 Sylvia is done with her O’ Level Examinations. When senior four is completed, there is always a thought of A’ level and then University. But we hope that Sylvia and the family members will help her to choose wisely and according to our Counseling, we hope she will be able to choose something better. Since it is a long holiday, she was told to help her parents.
