Education Sponsorship Project
Our Education Sponsorship Project is focused on providing an opportunity for children in the Lugazi area to receive education and school nutrition that would otherwise not be available to them.
The burden of school fees is one that many parents and guardians in Uganda face. Many parents opt to leave their children home to learn how to take care of a family even at a tender age. In Lugazi, some parents drop their children off at orphanages – not because they were orphans, but because there they would be promised to attend school, eat three meals a day and receive medical care. The boys are given the opportunity to attend school leaving out the girl child at home.
Hence we believe sponsorship allows us to help these families care for their children, while still allowing the children to stay in their families! We believe helping these children will also give an opportunity to the girl child to attend school like other children. This conviction, along with our understanding of the importance of family and the burden of school fees, led Hope4smiles Global Foundation to start our Education Sponsorship project. If these children could not receive an education, they would grow up to live the same kind of lives their parents lived like unable to understand the value of education and unable to send their own children to school, thus continuing the cycle of poverty. We agree that Hope4smiles alone would not change this village, but educated children could.
Most importantly, we love to share Gods love with these children in a hurting world.
