15 Years of Empowering Vulnerable Children
Uganda has the highest number of AIDS orphans of any country in the world. Childern of Uganda currently serves 600 orphans and vulnerable children who would otherwise not be in school.
Due to the rise in unemployment, recent world disasters and an unsteady economy - we have lost longtime child sponsors. We have 56 unsponsored children - many of whom are older and have nearly completed our program. With the power of Razoo, we can raise urgently needed funds to ensure that our children stay in our program and receive the one thing that all Ugandan children want - an education!
We need your support now more than ever! Our donors truly create miracles in the lives of our children every day. Allow one of our recent high school graduates, Bob Sebandeke, to explain how the love and kindness of his sponsors turned his entire world around 13 years ago when he lost his father. Bob is actually featured in the YouTube video above when he was only 6 years old and performing in the United States helping to raise money for Children of Uganda. He is now 18 years old and about to apply to medical school in Uganda. This excerpt comes from a recent note Bob sent to our US office expressing how much his life has changed since joining our program.
"Children of Uganda has turned my dreams and hopes into a tangible reality. You have made me realize that the sun can truly shine after a storm. This is all because of you. My broken hopes have turned in to a bright tomorrow. You've given life its true meaning and you've not only rebuilt my life - you've helped rebuild a torn nation. God bless you, Children of Uganda!"
Thanks to our friends and supporters - nearly 600 other children (who have the same hopes and dreams as Bob) are also pursuing an invaluable education and believing they have a bright future ahead of them. 2010 marks our 15th year of service. Thank you for helping us give the gift of hope to our "extended family" in Uganda for the last 15 years. Although you may not know the names of all the children you've empowered, you have made so many dreams come true.
