Child Scholarship Program
The Alliance for African Assistance is working to make a hopeful change in the lives of Ugandan children with our Child Scholarship Program. For 23 years, northern Uganda had been traumatized by a vicious war that caused brutal acts of violence and injustice to be taken against the Ugandan people. Through years of conflict, many children have been abducted, orphaned, and separated from their families.
Understanding your contribution. Your generous monthly gift of $35 provides a scholarship for a child’s tuition, school uniform, and supplies. In addition, with the remaining funds from this donation, we can help the child’s family with food and medical costs. Your contributions are 100% tax deductible. You may pay by credit card or check. Many sponsors choose to send their donation quarterly, semi-annually, or yearly.
Understanding our program. Our program is unique in that when you choose a child to sponsor, your gift is directly benefiting that child. Our staff in Uganda travels to the schools and homes of sponsored children to distribute your donations. Your connection to this child will also grow through the letters, pictures, and report cards that our Ugandan staff collects to share with you. And of course, you are encouraged to write as often as you like, sharing pictures and stories of your own family and life in America.
We need your help! There are still many Ugandan children in great need of assistance to complete their education. Without sufficient support, these children risk being expelled because of an inability to pay tuition while others will never have the chance to attend school. Can you help us empower children with scarce resources to change their circumstances through education?
