Information for Sponsors

Project Have Hope currently sponsors over 100 children and teenagers ranging from age 5 to 21. Project Have Hope enrolls children in day schools and boarding schools in order to best suit the individual needs of children and their families. The two day schools, Good Daddy and Kireka Hill, are among the best-performing schools in the country. The two boarding schools, St. Kizito and St. John Bosco, are high quality Catholic schools in the area. Project Have Hope has no religious affiliation nor does it promote particular religious beliefs; all of the schools we work with have been chosen for the quality of education they provide. All four schools encourage academic excellence and have a diverse student body.

Ideally, children attend school for 11 to 13 years at a minimum. You may choose to sponsor your child for one year, several years at a time, or for the entirety of his/her education from nursery school or primary school through secondary school. By sponsoring a child you dramatically change the course of his/her life. Your continued sponsorship will eventually lead to your child’s ability to care for himself/herself and others in the community. In addition, sponsoring one child’s education will create a unique bond between you and your child. No matter how long you are able to support your child financially, this is a bond that will last forever.

100% of your sponsorship will go toward funding your child’s education. Your contribution will cover tuition fees, room and board (when applicable), uniforms, and other necessary supplies. The three different sponsorship levels are listed below.

School Programs

Children initially attend nursery school (similar to kindergarten in the United States), then proceed to the primary level for seven years (P1 through P7), then proceed to the secondary level typically for six years (S1 through S6).

At the primary level, children study English, Math, Science, and Social Studies. Social Studies consists of History, Geography, Civics, and Current Affairs. The secondary school program is split into two sections: the standard four-year program and the advanced two-year program. At this level, students study English, Math, Science (Biology, Chemistry, Physics), Geography, History, and French. Some schools also offer German, Italian, Arabic, Kiswahili, or Luganda and a number of additional courses such as English Literature, Fine Art, Technical Drawing, Music, Religion, Entrepreneurship, Accounting, Commerce, and Agricultural Studies. In the first two years of the standard secondary school program, students study a wide range of courses. As they progress, students begin designing their course programs toward graduate degrees and future career goals. After completing secondary school, students continue their education at the university, pursuing careers in such fields as Engineering, Medicine, Law, and Mass Communication. Others enter vocational training programs.

Meet Other Sponsors

 

When you sponsor a child, you make the difference of a lifetime for that child and his or her family. Once you sign up, you will receive a welcome kit with a photo and information about your child by mail.

You'll receive updated photos, yearly progress reports and personal letters or drawings from your child. If you'd like, you can exchange gifts and letters and even travel to Uganda to meet your child and his or her family. Read what some of our current sponsors have to say about how sponsoring a child has changed their lives.

Sponsorship ensures that your child will be able to attend school, and even have all the necessary school supplies that we take for granted. Sponsors provide children with the knowledge that there is somebody out there who truly cares. With your encouragement, these children will be able to go on to become the doctors, teachers, lawyers, and even leaders of a brighter Uganda.
