Lugacraft Uganda Primary Student Sponsorship

At It Takes A Village, we believe that primary education is a Universal Right. In much of the developed world, it is a guaranteed civil liberty to all citizens.

Women like Namufumba (25) often work from sun-up to sun-down to provide for their families, so that their children have better opportunitiesHowever, in some areas of the world, even those with universal primary education, parents living on less than $1 per day in income are often forced to make impossible decisions. While attempting to balance the health and nutrition of their families, they scrape together whatever is left to pay for uniforms and school supplies, so that their children might realize a better future. Quite often there is not enough to go around, and many children are forced to drop out before receiving this basic opportunity. This cycle continues into the next generation, and the poverty trap continues.

We don't think that's ok - and we're enlisting your help.

We're proud to once again partner with Lugacraft Uganda, a Ugandan led community-based organization with over 8 years experience teaching life changing skills and forming women-led community groups, to ensure that no child goes without his or her primary education.

Agnes (37) works incredibly hard so that she can afford school fees and necessary medical care for her 8 childrenFor just $10 per month, you'll be able cover primary school expenses for a young child who deserves an education. Hard-working mothers like Namufumba and Agnes will have one less checklist item to worry about while raising their families.

Over the course of your sponsorship, you'll have the chance to communicate in writing with your student(s) and his or her family, sending notes of encouragement and learning about each others lives. It's our goal to bridge the gap between their culture and ours (which aren't so different, but are each beautiful in their own way), making the world a more strongly connected place. 

Thus far we've sponsored over 200 children in the villages of Buyenje, Kiteza, and Kawuku in the Buikwe District. 

Together, we can show that all anyone needs to show what they can do, is an appropriate opportunity.
