Your monthly support of $42 (or $500 per year) per child allows an orphaned child to get the help they need. Education, clothing, emergency health care and additional “safety nets” as well as being connected into a family environment are all provided with your gift. In return, you will be building a relationship with a child who will be forever grateful.

Family History: Blessing lives with his grandparents who are peasant farmers and are raising 6 other grandchildren besides Blessing and cannot afford his school tuition.

Blessing lived with his parents and his brother up until 2 years ago when his father abandoned them. His mother Glorious brought her boys to live with their grandparents who are peasant farmers while she found work in another district of Kabale as a nurse assistant. After a year she returned and was able to take Blessing’s brother but not Blessing. The father’s whereabouts remain unknown and he does not contribute anything to the family.
