Crazy Love Africa provides educational sponsors for the children of the women who participate in our program. Our students attend nursery schools, primary schools, secondary schools, vocational schools, and universities. A sponsor is identified for each child to pay their school fees. School is not free in Uganda and because of this many children do not get the opportunity to complete their education. Crazy Love Africa believes in the power of education to change our world and is committed to the education and dreams of the children in our sister’s care.
Sponsorship is $420 per year or $35/per month. School fees are paid to each school per school term by Crazy Love Africa. Each sponsor has the opportunity to communicate and support their sponsored child through letters, photos, and small gifts. Each holiday season our sponsors donate money to give the families needed items such as mattresses, blankets, food staples, and a chicken for the holiday meal.
We also sponsor parties for our Crazy Love Africa families that include the children. For a single mother, the gift of child sponsorship relieves much stress from the family. Our CLA children have BIG dreams to contribute to their community! Thank you for being a part of these dreams!
Already a Sponsor to a Child, Thank you! Send a letter to your child.
Education is a key element in eliminating poverty in Uganda. 90 percent of children attend primary school, which drops below 25 percent in secondary school. This disparity contributes to continued poverty, as those without a secondary education have lower chances of pursuing careers.
Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. – Nelson Mandela
Your sponsorship relieves stress from a single mother who often falls up short with fees to pay for her children’s education. She wants nothing more than to forge a better future for her children.
Crazy Love Africa sponsors provide hope & love through writing letters, sending gifts, and support to their child and family throughout the year. Sponsorship is an opportunity to expand your global family.
Becoming a Child Sponsor
The mission of Crazy Love Africa is to serve, restore, empower, and strengthen women in western Uganda who are HIV positive, single mothers. As a result, we will touch the children in their care, through education, community, and sustainable job creation. By working alongside women as global sisters, we create change, while addressing inequality, strengthening families, and communities.
Our sisters are single mothers who are working hard daily to provide for the basic needs of their family. Housing, food, and clothing are the most basic needs and all our sisters can handle as small business women. Often paying for school fees and supplies just isn’t feasible. This is where our child sponsorship program comes in.
In becoming a sponsor for one of our Crazy Love children, you can make a yearly gift of $420 or a contribution of $35 per month. This can be setup through our website. Please indicate the name of the child you are sponsoring when setting up your payment option (yearly or monthly). Our U.S. staff will assign you a child once you are ready to commit.
Your Crazy Love Africa Sponsored Child
Please let us know if you have a preference when sponsoring a child. We realize many people sponsor a child as a family or a group and would like to have a child close to the age or the same sex as their own. We will try our best to honor these requests. And hope your family or group will feel a strong connection to your sponsored child. What a gift of HOPE you are providing for their future!
What you can expect from us
When you commit to a yearly sponsorship you will receive a photo of your sponsored child along with a family photo. We will provide a summary of the family situation and child’s current grade in school. You will receive updates on your child and family at least twice a year. The update will include photos, report card, a summary of your child, and a letter written by your child. You will have the opportunity to send letters and a small gift to your sponsored child when we visit their home each spring and fall. We will request this from you about a month before we depart for the visit. We also will give you the opportunity to give a donation toward a holiday gift for your sponsored child (ex: new mattress, blanket, chicken).
