Godparent Project

You can make a wonderful difference in the life of a child by becoming a godparent to a child supported by Ssamba Foundation. For just $360 per year you can sponsor a child and help break the cycle of poverty.  We will send you a sponsor package with photos, information and a letter from your child. And, if you wish, you can correspond directly with your child.  Godparent Sponsorship provides:

  • Two nutritious meals per day
  • The chance for a brighter future
  • Skills training that goes beyond the classroom
  • Quality education from caring and attentive teachers
  • Small class sizes (many schools in Uganda have student teacher ratios 1:100 or more)


Scholastic Materials Support Project

To those who come from very low financial background, we provide for their textbooks, library and laboratory facilities so that they are not left with any reason for not attending the schools.  While each area we serve has unique needs, Ssamba Foundation encourages and sustain the academic progression of children from early education programs through secondary school and beyond. Youth and children in poverty come to our office to receive educational support, such as:

  • Uniforms: clothing, backpacks and shoes
  • Financial support: school fees and transportation costs
  • Libraries: study areas and reading materials for all ages
  • Supplies: textbooks, calculators, notebooks, pencils and pens
  • Scholarships: vocational training, college and university assistance
  • Study aids: tutoring, educational workshops and special youth programs
  • Community literacy: books for classrooms and libraries and reading tents.
  • Computer center: free Internet access, basic computing courses and tutoring services


Sponsor an Orphan or Vulnerable Child 

Your sponsorship as a godparent will begin upon receipt of your first sponsorship donation. Please allow four to six weeks to hear from your godchild. It’s also a wonderful way to learn more about the daily activities of our children. You will receive regular updates on your godchild’s academic and social progress, a Christmas card with a new photo every year and replies to all of your letters. See what a difference you can make in the life of a child. We also organize regular online video calls for our children and their sponsors.
