Sponsoring a child
will change their life forever
There will always be a great need for sponsorship in Africa. Education is not free in Uganda or Kenya. Even though you may read online that education is free, children are not allowed to attend without a school uniform, backpack, shoes, socks, money for books or school examines.
When you sponsor a child, the money includes everything necessary for them to attend school, plus lunch, which is usually their first meal of the day.
The children below are part of the Green Valley orphanage, or family members of Christ Vision Churches, or Stars of Hope. Most we have taught in our Children's Workshops and see on a regular basis. The orphans at Green Valley Orphanage are allowed to go free to Green Valley Primary School, but after that their education will end without a sponsor. Most pastors and teachers struggle to be able to send their children to school, as the average salary for teachers is $40.00 per month, and pastors around the same if, that.
Sponsorship for the very young ranges around $200-$400 per year, depending on where they attend.
Sponsorship for Secondary School is around $1000-$1200 per year, depending on where they attend.
Sponsorship for University is around $1000 - $2000 per year, depending on where they attend.

This is Christopher who wants to join a vocational school and train in welding and metal fabrication. Today we went there and they told us that the training takes one year and you pay at once 1,500,000 ugx ($425.) for the whole year. On this amount, they will give him the following: heavy workshop shoes and helmet. They told us that if he becomes a good student, after his training they can retain him to continue working with them in their workshop. They also said that he can start training anytime as soon as money is available.
Everything that we accomplish through Equipped For More Ministries is through donations. Janis and Larry, and anyone else who may join them in the future, pay for ALL of their expenses. This includes airfare, hotels, food, drivers, and all personal needs. All donations stay in Africa.
If you would like to make a donation to help in any area, you can do so through Cloud9 Worship Center, where you will receive a 501(c)3 donation receipt at the end of the year for your taxes. If you would like your donation to go to a specific project, just let us know @ email@example.com and we will see that that happens. Also, if you have any questions, just email us.
When making a donation, please put UGANDA in the notes, and it will go into our account to be used specifically for missionary work in Africa
