Uganda Karimojong, Peter Lakabwa 1019 A Project of Child Sponsorship

This Project requires 2 Sponsors because the children are in a boarding school. This is necessary in order to remove them from street life.

They are the most hated children in Uganda--the Karimojongbeggar children of Kampala. Some were brought to the city by adults in search of a better life. Many were trafficked and put on the streets to beg for the benefit of a master. From proud families, experts from time immemorial in all things relating to cattle, they have ended up homeless, hungry, abused, outcast, and hated. Unschooled, unskilled, and with no future. If they don't beg, they will starve. If they don't bring in enough cash, they will be beaten, if they do beg they may be rounded up by police and sent away from their families. Caught in the middle of forces beyond their understanding, it's hard for them to win no matter what they do. No wonder the Lord has laid the Karimojong beggar children on our hearts at ECM!

How can you help?

Your sponsorship removes your child from the street and provides for all the child's educational needs at a boarding school. (The boarding school is necessary because the children were formerly street beggars which is unsafe and illegal.) We seek extra donations to enable the child to remain at the school even during vacation times, because if they return to the streets, they may be rounded up by police and taken off to prison. Your sponsorship also provides for a weekly Saturday club which includes help with schoolwork, Bible teaching, exercise, developmental activities the children enjoy, and a hot, nutritious meal. Medical care is also provided
