How Sponsorship Works
Sponsoring a child is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself. Sharing a little goes a long way in a country like Uganda. For the same cost of dinner and movie for two in the United States, you can feed, clothe and educate a Ugandan child for a month. It may seem like a cliché these days, but you can indeed change a child's life.
How does it work?
- You will be paired with a child on our priority care list, or
- You can ask to individually sponsor a boy or girl in the description box on the next page after you click the "I'm ready to sponsor" button down below!
- Once you have been paired with a child and set up your recurring or annual donation, the child's photo and bio are emailed to you. That email will also contain pertinent information about your sponsorship and how to correspond with your sponsored child. At that point, we ask of you to write to your sponsored child and introduce yourself through stories and photographs.
*You will automatically be paired with the next child on our priority care list. If you would like to sponsor multiple children, please state that in the "Description" section after you click the button below.
It can take as long as six weeks for a letter to be delivered to your student and just as long to receive a message back, so please be patient. As you can imagine, the communication infrastructure in Uganda is not as advanced as the U. S.
The relationship you establish with your student is potentially just as valuable as the life-changing educational opportunity you are giving the child. Most of the students in our program have lost at least one parent and many are orphans. Those who have not been orphaned come from single parent or impoverished families. Learning about you and family life in another country may be the spark that ignites their fire or the platform that catapults them into action and greatness. That is the exciting part - anything is possible!
If you are interested in sponsoring a trade school or university student, please contact us on the Contact Us page.
Please note that E3 Africa does not share your personal information with third parties, and your donations qualify as IRS charitable tax deductions. Please consult with a tax professional for information on tax-deductible donations and planned giving.
By clicking the "I'm Ready to Sponsor" button below and submitting payment information, you are authorizing E3 Africa to automatically set up a monthly or annual recurring donation on your debit/credit card or bank account and will remain in effect until a written request for cancelation is received.

Want to bless your child in addition to your sponsorship? Whether it’s their birthday, graduation, a holiday or you just want to send a surprise, you can specify any monetary donation to your student or you can donate to the general student fund which will help give every student a gift for Christmas.
