We thankfully achieved our goal of giving a Christmas party to our children and local children. Thank you to all of you who have contributed to our Uganda Orphanage! You can see from our photos what has been accomplished since our Christmas party and how your money has helped. January 1st was also a Big Day: celebrating our Director Rogers’ 26th birthday!
We still have a lot to do and to make your support more personal to both you and the children, we’ve created our own sponsor a child program.
Diep Ark Sponsor a Child Programme
Start Sponsoring a Child and raise them out of poverty today!
Your contribution each month can provide a child with:
- Medical checkups, which often save lives
- Nutritious food
- Health and hygiene training
- Educational assistance
- Mentoring to help children discover their incredible value and potential
When you sponsor a child in Uganda through Diep Ark Ministries International Program, you’ll receive your child’s photo, personal story and you can send mail to your sponsored child if you wish.
When children find out they’ve been sponsored, the joy they feel is indescribable. Just knowing that someone across the globe cares means more than you can imagine. Sponsoring a child in need will profoundly change the future for your child, and will change your own life as well. We will make sure every child is sponsored. So if one child is already sponsored, we’ll remove them as an option. We’re conscious of not making any children feel unwanted for not being chosen.
Introducing our children
The orphanage has 12 permanent residents. Our children are introduced below. We are looking to support each child by providing them with all their needs, a safe and loving place to live, regular nutritional meals, access to healthcare, recreational activities and education.
Angella is a semi-orphan who was living with her mom. Her mom was really struggling and unable to take care of her.
Bowazi is a semi-orphan with a poor background. He lost his dad in an accident and has been raised by a single mom who cannot support him anymore.
Ericxander is a semi-orphan. His dad died and his mom was not in a position to help him anymore.
Jimy lost both parents and has been raised by his aunt, who couldn't support him anymore.
Minate lost both parents due to AIDS and became an orphan at a young age, but she is HIV negative thank goodness.
Moses was born in a disabled family (both parents). His mom passed away and his dad is unable to care for Moses and his sister, although she has been sponsored.
Prety’s family was killed in a war in the northern part of Uganda. She has been living with her grand-mother but the situation became too difficult.
Rehana is a complete orphan. Both her parents died on a boat as they were crossing from one island to another.
Riyara lost her dad. Her mom has some medical complications which make it very hard for her to continue caring for Riyara.
Roset lost her dad, and her mother has cancer. Her situation was really hopeless.
Sharon lost both parents and has been part of our care program in the past.
Umaru is a semi-orphan. He lost his dad. His mom is still alive but living in very poor conditions. He now sees the light in our orphanage home.
How a child benefits from your sponsorship
Through our sponsorship program we look to address every major aspect of a child’s wellbeing, every element that he or she needs to survive, develop and thrive. We work to address each child’s spiritual, economic, social and physical needs.
Basic Support ($30 pcm)
If you’re able to help us by donating per month at the basic level, you’ll be providing a child with shelter, a bed, washing facilities, nutritional food and the care of our dedicated staff.
That unlocks the potential within their heart and kindness within.
Our orphanage provides each child a safe place to live, with a bed and washing facilities.
Look to protect against malnutrition for their better growth.
Each child is provided with three meals a day, an essential part of their development.
To protect the kids from crime, violence, and danger out of the world.
Full Support ($50 pcm)
By committing to our full support option for a child in our care, you’ll not only be providing them with everything offered within the basic support, but you’ll also be helping them with transport to school, access to education and healthcare.
To defeat illiteracy and provide critical skills for every child.
To fight back against diseases and sicknesses that would end their life at an early age.
Each child needs stationery, a uniform, a bag, shoes and books
TRANSPORT TO SCHOOL
Walking to school can take 2 hours, a school van will allow them more time for their homework and play
