What is sponsorship?
The young people in Hosanna Youth Project are provided with a home and education, your sponsorship helps with all the costs of food, clothes, medical care and education. Some of these young people are placed with us as a 'place of safety' and some are complete orphans. It costs about £50 per month per child to provide for them so we accept 2 or 3 sponsors sharing the costs for each young person up to this value.
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.
Choose a child to sponsor NOW!!
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.
321 Elijah Balayira
School: LIA Christian Secondary School|
Age: 18 Years Old
Ambitions: Wants to become a doctor
Child's situation: Elijah belongs to a family of 6 children with a single mother following the death of the father last year. He is the eldest son. They comprise of 3 boys and 3 girls. Their ages are as follows. Elijah Balayira 9, Wasswa 6, Nakato Monica 6, Babirye Margaret 3,Nakato Eva3 and Frank Kizza 10 months old. The mother-Specioza Mukalukwiza isnt sure how old she is, but looks to be in her late 50s and says that she married late in life to an old man whom she assumes was in his late 60s. Amazingly, this lady had 3 sets of twins although the first twins died shortly after birth, the other twins are still alive. The mother says- she was quiet nervous that the same could happen to these other twins since she did not know the cause of the death of her first children. Specioza says that soon after the husband's death, the deceased's relatives came and grabbed all her belongings including the animals (cows) they owned. They began to feel insecure and decided to flee for their lives. They currently stay in Kyetume where they don't have any relatives but only friends and well wishers who many times play the relatives' role. Her job is to dig for other people to get food for her children. They sleep on old rugs which are shared amongst the children and the mother as well. The situation here is very sad and alarming and calls for an assistance. Elijah and the twins following him are in primary one. And the rest aren't attending school yet. Aug 2010 Its now time for 2nd term holidays. The kids might not really enjoy it because its very short- 2 weeks only.
