At Africa Renewal, children are a core part of our mission. The children in Uganda today will be our next generation of leaders, and they also make up some of the most vulnerable members of our communities. Through our many development programs and sponsorship opportunities, we are able to meet the needs of vulnerable children who would otherwise not have access to education and healthcare. We have programs designed for different age groups, serving children ages 2 through 20-years old. Learn about how you can partner with us to show the love of Christ to these children.
How is sponsorship helping vulnerable children in Uganda during the pandemic?
During this challenging season, your commitment to your sponsored child is more vital than ever and is allowing Africa Renewal to continue making an impact on the lives of thousands of children in Uganda. Our staff at each Child Development Program (CDP) location is doing more frequent home visits to share the love of Jesus and check on the children during this time. Due to the generous relief donations from our sponsors and donors, we’ve been able to provide a relief pack with food and basic necessities to each sponsored child’s family.
We’ve printed educational materials for the children so that they will not fall behind in school and we’ve even hired teachers to tutor the children while they are out of school. This has not only helped the sponsored children, but has given work to many teachers in Uganda so that they can continue to provide for their own families during this time. Your pledge contributions also help each CDP prepare to pay school tuition as soon as the schools are allowed to re-open. And as always, the children continue to have access to basic medical care should they have need of it, and they are being discipled and pointed to Jesus as their Savior and Provider.
We currently have over 400 registered children who do not have a sponsor and would love one. If you or friend would like to sponsor one of these children, please click on the Sponsor link above. You can also send a gift and letter to your sponsored child, which I know they would appreciate it. Thanks again for sponsoring children in Uganda!
LEARN ABOUT OUR PROGRAMS
Loving Hearts Babies Home
Loving Hearts Babies Home was founded in 2004 by Africa Renewal Ministries in Kampala, Uganda. We currently serve as temporary care-giver to 30 children, fulfilling the scriptural mandate to carry for orphans in their distress(James 1:27). They are provided holistic care that insures a safe place to live, medical and nutritional care, growth monitoring in a Christian environment, and reintegration with their family or other loving caregivers.
Early Childhood Development Program
Through this program, Africa Renewal nurtures, disciples, feeds and clothes the most vulnerable toddlers in the slum areas of Uganda’s capital city of Kampala, while also providing mentorship and guidance to their parents and families. Through our sponsorship program we match toddlers, who have been identified and admitted to the program, with sponsors from partner countries. For $40 a month, you can sponsor one of our toddlers today, and give them access to healthcare, education and hope.
Child Development Program
Through local churches across Uganda, the Child Development Programs aid children between 4 and 20-years old, connecting them with sponsors around the world and providing access to education and basic medical care. We currently have 30 Child Development Programs, that strive to develop character, competence and vocation for thousands of children through Christian discipleship and leadership training. For $40 a month, you can sponsor a child today, giving them access to healthcare, education and hope.
Bethany Children’s Village
Bethany Children’s Village is a unique orphanage that places orphaned and abandoned children in family-style homes. These homes of children and caretakers make up the “village” which optimally provides a seamless transition for abandoned children into regular family life. There are care-takers in each home that nurture and care for a certain number of children, providing them with a loving environment until the children are able to be reunited with family members or placed in permanent homes.
Being able to visit Uganda multiple times has truly been one of the biggest blessings in my life. Meeting our children in their homes and partnering with the local village has been one of the most rewarding things I have ever been able to do.
