But we are also committed with working with your sponsored child’s household to ensure the family unit is strengthened through skills based training, and supported through our various programs.
Our child sponsorship program has given hundreds of children not only a hope and future and also has helped to reduce the vicious cycle of poverty, as the majority of children that graduate from our sponsorship program gain employment and begin to support their household.
Operation Uganda’s aim is to break the cycle of poverty by providing support to children on four levels: Spiritual, Intellectual, Physical and Emotional.
We are Christ-centred. Every sponsored child hears the gospel and is encouraged to develop a lifelong relationship with God. By being church based, all children sponsored are encouraged to attend a local church. Our hope is that all children know God and follow Him.Intellectual
All sponsored children are given a full primary and secondary scholarship which includes full school fees, school uniforms, text books, lunch allowance, and examination fees.
We ensure that through sponsorship, children are healthy and have access to medical care when needed and have regular health checkups by professional medical staff.
