Together, we can make a difference

“It is easy to build strong children that to repair broken men” ~Fredrick Douglas

Millions of children worldwide have no access to vital resources such as food, clothing, education and shelter. Education is one of the best ways to help disadvantaged children have a better future. Every child has the right to education, but unfortunately many of them are trapped in the circle of poverty without education that can turn their lives into success.

So when children find out they’ve been sponsored, the joy and relief they feel are indescribable. Sponsoring a child is a personal way to show God’s love to a child in need. Just knowing that someone across the globe cares for them means more than you can imagine. Just knowing that someone across the globe cares for them means more than you can imagine. Sponsoring a child in need will profoundly change the future for your child, and will change your own life as well. For a small amount, you’ll help that child and their community, and when you sponsor a child, you’ll receive your child’s photo, personal story and a child sponsorship packet by mail in approximately two weeks.

What is student sponsorship?

Giving to Ugali youth by sponsoring a student is a wonderful way to help change the life of a youth in need and bring hope to their entire community. Being a sponsor will give you the chance to build a new relationship with one special student who will know you by name as you correspond and share your lives with each other. Creating a strong bond that brings two people from different continents together.

With the help of committed supporters like you, we can continue our work and keep the promise to provide education for under-privileged youth. This will give one child access to tuition, stationery, food, school uniform for one year.

How does sponsorship work?

Ugali Youth sponsorship program operates on a community-based care model which keeps the student in the homes of their caregivers where they learn good family values and develop everyday necessary skills.This model ensures that they receive the best personal care and proper education.

Through sponsorships, we improve lives. One student at a time through primary, secondary, as well as continuing education youth programs. We bring hope to an entire generation.

Our sponsorship pairs a student with an individual who wants to make a difference in that student’s life. The donor’s gift provides for the well-being of Ugali Youth. As a sponsor, you are  able to communicate and interact with the student. Ugali will keep you updated on their progress and well-being.

Sponsoring a youth means changing a LIFE! When you partner with us to make a difference, you enable a youth to create a better future for themselves and generations to come. A youth with a sponsor is one with hope.

Can I send my sponsored student mail?

Yes!

Why is sponsorship needed?

Sponsorship is needed because Education changes lives. With 200 million people aged between 15 and 24 (the youth bracket), Africa has the youngest population in the world. The current trend indicates that this figure will double by 2045, according to the 2012 African Economic Outlook report prepared by experts from the African Development Bank. And with the average adult in Kenya making less than $2 a day while education is not free for all students – most parents cannot afford to send their children to school. Ugali works with youths in major poverty-stricken areas in Kenya. If not given the opportunity for education, boys will be forced to enter the labor force early, turn to drugs or stealing to make a living. Girls are usually forced into early marriage, bearing children by the age of 13. Education helps bring hope, breaking the vicious cycle of hopelessness.

Ugali Youth believe education is important, and sponsorship allows Ugali Youth to enhance the quality of life for the youth and their community.

Can I adopt a child through Ugali Youth?

We are grateful for your compassion to care for the youth in need around the world. However, Ugali Youth is not an adoption agency. Ugali has multiple programs to care for vulnerable youth, but we do not process adoptions. The best way to make a difference is through our student sponsorship project. Visit ugaliyouth.org

Does full donation go directly to my sponsored student?

No one has yet realized the wealth of sympathy, the kindness, and generosity hidden in the soul of a child. The effort of every true education should be to unlock that treasure ~ Emma Goldman
