Sponsor a Child

Education is the key to a brighter future for Uganda, yet there are an estimated one million children in the region who are unable to attend school. You can make a difference by directly sponsoring the education and other basic necessities of a child in Northern Uganda.

For $40 per month ($480 per year), you can provide an education and a better life to a child in need. You’ll receive updates on your child’s progress and follow them as they work toward success.

Long-term Support

Sponsor a Child

The ideal sponsor will commit to supporting a child continuously until they have completed secondary school. If there is a significant development in the child’s life, such as the loss of a guardian or placement in an advanced school, TCAF will inform you and we will work together to address the changing needs of the child.

If you are ready to commit to sponsoring a specific child (such as those listed below), fill out this form. TCAF will contact you to discuss arrangements.
