SPONSOR A CHILD
Sponsor a Child Today and Transform Their Future for Life
Friends for Hope believes that every child deserves the chance for a better future. Unfortunately, for many children in Uganda, their future is hindered by poverty. We are looking for sponsors to partner with Friends for Hope in providing a quality education for the most marginalized children in Uganda, so they may have a fighting chance to end their family’s cycle of poverty and truly have hope for a greater future.
We have two levels of sponsorship in our program.
Level 1: Students in Nursery through P5 is $45 a month.
Level 2: Students in P6-S6 is $45 a month for partial sponsorship or $90 for full sponsorship.
Children in Need of Sponsors Now
Zubeeda is one of our first high school graduates and wants to go to college! She needs a Level 2 sponsor at $90 a month or two Level 1 sponsors at $45 each a month.
The following children will promote to Junior High next year and will need co-sponsors who donate $45 a month.

HOW SPONSORSHIP WORKS
The goal of Friends for Hope is to find sponsors who are committed to helping Ugandan children realize their dreams of a quality education. Our sponsors are committed to seeing their children through primary, secondary, and even university level education.

WHAT DO SPONSORSHIP DONATIONS COVER
Your sponsor fees cover everything from school tuition, supplies, and uniforms to boarding supplies for students in boarding school. You can view a more complete list by viewing our Sponsorship Coverage document.
No more than 9% of your donation helps to cover operating expenses, including the Ugandan office rental and office supplies.
Staff salaries, medical care, and emergencies are not covered in sponsorship donations. Each of our staff has sponsors, but additional donations can be made to our Children's Fund to help cover medical and emergency needs.
WILL MY SPONSOR FEES INCREASE?
Our Sponsorship Levels as of 2020 are:
Level 1: Students in Nursery- P5*
$45 a month.
Level 2: Students in P6 - University**
$45 for partial sponsorship/$90 for full sponsorship
*In extreme circumstances, some Level 1 students will require boarding, which will bump them to Level 2.
**Our goal is to have students P6-S6 in boarding school to ensure they can fully be focused on their education. We will contact you when their student reaches P5 to see if you would like to partially sponsor your child or if you want to continue fully sponsoring your child come P6. If you want to partially sponsor, we will work together to find a co-sponsor.
*** What do the grade levels mean in Uganda? Nursey through P5 is equivalent to Preschool through Elementary. P6 & P7 are 6th & 7th grade. S1-S6 is 8th grade - 12th grade.
FULLY SPONSORED CHILDREN
We are thankful to have more than 70 students currently being sponsored through Friends for Hope. Your partnership is making a life-long impact on these children's lives and their families as well.
"What I learned during my time in Uganda was that I'm not just sponsoring a child. That child and I are now family."
