Child Sponsorship: Bugiri

Three boys ate jackfruit and watched curiously from the roadside as we interviewed the first family about the school-age children and their needs. Visiting no fewer than seven homes, we collected information about more than a dozen children.

Our hope is to find school sponsorship for all of these children. Less than $500 annually provides three semesters of education (a full year), requirements (books, uniforms, etc.), and a small savings for occasional needs such as malaria medicine, mosquito nets, or pocket money (used for lunch at school). If you find your heart being tugged by one of these children, let me know or contact Mercy Uganda to get more information and to offer the suprise of hope to their families.
