Over the past 15 years we have been working with a group of young people, mostly orphans, from an area in South Sudan where there is currently less than a quarter of children are in education, in some villages one local leader told us it is as little as 1 child in 10 that are receiving education. The scheme sponsors children through primary education and for some of them this continues onto secondary education too. The programme has been so eagerly received by the locals in that area of South Sudan have gathered together what funds they can to send a further 20 children along to the school. Life Bridging Works would like to expand this sponsorship programme alongside the development of Kuleu Lights Primary School enabling more child to access quality education.
Over the past few years, some of our sponsorship students have moved on to higher education which has been a blessing to see. Some of this year group are now returning to their home town, involved in local NGO’s and in the new health clinic that is being built.
One of the newest areas that the charity has been growing in the past few months has been the launch of a new Sponsorship Programme in Northern Uganda. The children are all part of Blessed Hope school, a school we have supported over the past 10 years in its development, building, and growth. We see education sponsorship as a really important step, as it helps to give each child a hand up in life and this will further impact their families and communities as they are taught valuable life skills.
Each of the students have been chosen by the teachers in the school, who know the families within the area and have chosen those most in need. We now have almost 30 children being sponsored but would love to have more young people being touched by this great scheme.

For just £20 a month a child can receive a quality education. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org today stating “you would like to sponsor a child,” to find out more.
