Educational sponsorships

The Lifeline Uganda Initiative enables from lower socio-economic backgrounds to obtain a high-quality education by covering the costs of their school fees, school uniforms and other necessary materials. The children are supported throughout their entire school career at the lifeline schools, from kindergarten through to the completion of high school.

The sponsored children will have better employment chances thanks to quality education and furthermore they can lead more satisfying and self-determined lives.

We currently support 43 children through 36 private sponsorships.

If you are interested in helping a child through an educational sponsorship, contributing to our work through a donation or have further questions, our project coordinator Julia Buchholz sincerely looks forward to hearing from you (E-mail or telephone)!

Selection process

Our partners, the Bukedea Lifeline Schools are among the best schools in the entire region and are responsible for the selection and education of the sponsored children. A committee, comprised of church and school representatives from the community, is responsible for announcing the availability of educational sponsorships. This committee assesses the financial and social situation of the families of potential sponsorship candidates and selects the most needy and vulnerable children for the lifeline Uganda initiative.

 

School fees

190 Euro a year are enough to enable a child to attend school. A detailed breakdown of what the sponsorship provides to a child can be found in the table below:

Educational sponsorship: the process

Once you have decided to sponsor the educational career of a child, we communicate this directly to our project counterpart Julius and the Lifeline Schools. In November each year eligible children are then selected in Uganda (by our partners). Once a child has been selected, we will send you a short profile summary including a photo and a description of the child’s current situation.

The new school year in Uganda begins at the end of January. Thus at this time you will receive an invoice which details the school fees. If you have been sponsoring the child for a longer period of time, you will also receive an overview of the child’s grades along with a report on all of Lifeline Uganda’s activities throughout the previous year.

Our strengths

Glocal LifeLearn places a lot of emphasis on transparency and equal and strong partnership with the lifeline schools. The initiative is based on voluntary work; both in Europe as well as in Uganda, which means that the overwhelming majority of each donation directly goes to financing the education of each child.
