No Child should Choose between Education and Food

Sponsor a child top image 3

No child should have to choose between finding something to eat for the day or going to school. Yet this is the reality of so many children in the village surrounding our project in Lira. In response to this great need, PHW has opened up a sponsorship program for the orphans in the community who are not currently living with us at our Children’s Home, which is at maximum capacity.  With your sponsorship of $38 per month, you will be able to give holistic care for a child in desperate need.  They will be enrolled in our school, given one meal a day, access to medical care, have a trained social worker begin developmental and counseling services with them and their guardians, and enter into a spiritual mentorship program.  This is a tremendous way to develop a life long relationship with a child and change their life.  Would you take the step today to leverage your life for another?

Visit our donation page and choose the $38/month option under the child sponsorship option.

Meet some of the orphans below:

Morris and Inno – 8 and 9 years old. Their father passed away last year at the hands of a witch doctor and left behind 28 children. He is actually the man who sold us our initial 15 acres.
