Orphanage Support Project (OSP)
Here we generally focus on Vulnerable and Orphans Children whose Parents have died of HIV/AIDS. Currently, the choir hopes to reache more than 170 needy orphans in the rural districts of Uganda. Each year, desperate children have continued to receive facilitation. However, due to the wide spread of HIV/AIDS, many orphans have been left without traceable relatives. Therefore, the choir has created a Foster Family Initiative (FFI), run by the local communities to provide a loving, nurturing home for these desperate orphans. We provide these families with the facilitation support like school fees, clothing’s, scholastic materials to support the orphans.
- 2 Our Saturday educational programme "IAM A PERSON WHO MATTERS " (IPWM), has encouraged many orphaned children to grow into good citizens of the country.
- we encourage you to join our children sponsorship team today. You can support us with clothing’s, food ,scholastic materials like books, pens and even with funds to support these children.
To sponsor a child
All sponsors receive full details of the sponsored child, including name, postal address, family status, name and address of school and present class. Sponsors can of course contact the child as and when they wish to.
You will receive annual school reports to see how your child is getting on at school and will be updated on any changes in their circumstances. (In case where sponsorship should be terminated e.g. has left school, we will immediately contact you and offer you the choice of continuing sponsorship or switching to another orphan).
