Student Sponsorship

A child’s life is changed forever.


Students in our sponsorship program have been orphaned by AIDS or live in socially vulnerable situations. We need your sponsorship help. Currently there are more children than sponsors.

$50 a month is enough to support one child in school and it covers tuition, uniforms, books, and other necessities for a child to attend school. In addition, sponsored students benefit from the knowledge that someone cares about their future and is helping with their success.

Please consider sponsoring one of these children.

If you have any questions about the children or sponsoring a child, please contact Keith Weber at keithpweber@gmail.com.
