Sponsorship

Sponsoring a child through Yofafo is a truly unique, life changing experience; not only for you as a sponsor, but also for the life of the child you are supporting. For many children in Uganda, a proper education is just a dream. With your help and support, Yofafo can make these dreams a reality for children who would otherwise fall through the gaps.

The unique thing about supporting a child through Yofafo is that we ensure that there is a strong line of communication maintained between the sponsor and their student. The level of involvement is entirely up to you: we will happily send you school reports, photo albums and letters from the child you are sponsoring, so that you can share in their life changing experiences. You can see their progress as they grow and develop, as a direct result of your ongoing support.

How does sponsorship work?

A monthly sponsorship of $30 will directly enable your sponsored child to receive: Education, Counselling and Career Guidance, Educational Materials, School Uniforms, Medical Care, and Meals (porridge at breakfast and a lunchtime meal). Sponsorship can be either arranged as a monthly recurring amount, or a single donation for a school year.

The following students need the assistance of a sponsor to complete their education successfully. To apply for sponsorship, or simply for further information, please go to our sponsorship application page.
