Sponsor Families

One of the best ways to make an impact on the lives of less privileged families in Africa is sponsorship. For less than the cost of a tank of gas, you can feed an entire family for one month or meet countless other needs based on their unique circumstances.

Each month, our liaisons in Africa identify new families who desperately need assistance. While we use donations to assist all families, your sponsorship goes directly to the family(ies) of your choice. Please note, all families are available for sponsorship. Read below to find one that touches your heart and moves you to sponsor.

Musengimana Farida

My name is Musengimana Farida. I am a 49-year-old divorced mother of seven school-age children. I live with my kids in a single room on rent. I have been diagnosed with high blood pressure due to chronic depression.

I am not very educated and don’t have a stable job. To make money for daily expenses to support my family, I launder dirty clothes for people in the village. It is difficult to make ends meet, and I have trouble raising money to pay for my kids' tuition as well as other home and medical bills.

My name is Kisembo Josephine. I am an 83-year-old widowed grandmother living with my 17-year-old granddaughter. I have faced many hardships in my life. My husband and my six biological children passed away from a variety of causes.


Their deaths have left me weak mentally and physically. I suffer from depression and other age-related illnesses like high blood pressure, poor vision, backache, and persistent abdominal pain.

Asonya Joseph

I am Asonya Joseph . I am a 78 year old  man. I live in Kidongole village,  Eastern Bukedea, Uganda with my wife and 13 children. My story is not like any story, it is a story of grief and deprivation.


In my 78 years I have been a witness to the ups and downs of life. Loss of beloved ones is grieving, but the hardest is to keep the rest of your family alive in hard conditions for survival. When my first wife passed away many years ago, I remarried and brought a new woman home to share my responsibilities.
