Take My Hand Uganda
Opening our hands and hearts to vulnerable families in Uganda. Isaiah 58:10
​When you take the hand of one of these children through sponsorship, you will be directly impacting their heart and mind as well as their now, hope-filled future. The cost is $38.00 a month and each child will have two sponsors. Your support will pay for their boarding and school fees, medical care, meals, uniform, class wear, a sweater, letter writing materials, postage, transportation to and from school during the holidays, care and keeping during the holiday breaks, small administrative costs and more. The staff at TMHU are all volunteers. We do recognize that we are a new organization. But you can be confident in the knowledge that we are working with and through two very well established NGO's in Uganda. 

   The boarding school we have chosen is a Christian School located about 80 minutes from Kampala. There is a church within the school and the children attend morning devotions, evening prayers and Sunday services. Sports will be played on their large playing field. The kids will be able to write their sponsors at least four times a year and can receive letters from you when we travel over there or mail letters to Uganda from our office..  Mail your letters to Take My Hand Uganda: 380H Knollwood St., Ste. 200, Winston Salem, NC 27103

LETTERS are a very important part of this ministry. Your child will take great joy in getting a personal letter from you! PLease note that younger children will need helpfrom and older student, teacher or other adult  when writing to you. You can send photos, stickers and other flat, lightweight items like bookmarks, postcards, coloring pages, maps and mazes. Tell them about yourself, your family, pets, jobs, favorites, or adventures. PLease be sensitive to their situation where having their basic needs met is a cause for celebration for them. Encourage your child. Ask them questions. Tell them you believe in them! Support them in their growing relationship with Christ. And let them know they are loved. Having a sponsor is life changing for these children and can alter the course of their lives forever.

   The kids all have different backgrounds and stories. Many are totally without parents or relatives to support them. Some have a living aunt or grandmother who are unable to provide even the basic necessities for them. The children have been under the dedicated care of a pastor and his wife who live very humbly themselves.  They cannot possibly afford to educate these kids as education in Uganda is not free. They live as a family on the Pastor's small compound complete with grass-roofed huts and an open fire "kitchen. Their days are spent tending  a garden for food, drawing water from a filthy water source that is used by cows and humans alike, and they sleep four and five to a mattress or on the dirt floor. Everyone works together to bring in wood for cooking , keep the compound swept clean and make the long trek for water. They've been together for years and their bond with each other is strong. They are a family.

   During the school holidays (three separate months out of the year) your child will return to their beloved Pastor and family and will also be able to visit with any existing relatives. Our intent is to keep families together and simply join hands with them in the care and keeping of their beautiful children. 

The new school year has just begun in Uganda. We need at least one sponsor for every child before we can go ahead and begin to pay their school fees up front and transport them all at once. A two hour+ journey.
We hope and pray that you will choose a child to love and support. Use the papypal button below their name on the I Choose You!  page to begin your sponsorship. Thank you!
