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.

Estella Sanya


We talked to Christopher Wamugaya about helping with school fees for his daughter.

He said “When schools reopened my worry was how Sanya Estella would go back to school, we have other problems but her return to school was priority”.

"When the Africa in Me told me they would give me a hand, I didn't expect it. Many people come and promise but just starve our hope to nothing, this was real redemption. God has created a way through the Africa in Me. Thank you so much. I won't forget this."

His daughter received school fees, a new uniform, books and pens.

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.

Christine Akai


My name is Christine Akai. I am 19yrs old married woman residing in Uganda, Eastern Bukedea with my family. There are 4 members in my family including me and my 3 children. I have been working as a peasant for years now as I couldn't continue my studies due to poverty. My early pregnancies made it very difficult to manage three children as I delivered premature babies and they are usually sick.

We live in a small grass thatched house where it is very cold and moldy. My children are usually sick as I am not being able to provide them...

Tino Loy


My name is Tino Loy. I am a 20-year-old married woman currently residing in Uganda with my family members. My husband and I live in a small grass-hatched house with our 3 children.

I have been doing peasant work along with my husband but we are not able to feed our family. We cannot afford to send our children to school. Due to rebel insurgency, we have been facing a lot of problems. My first born suffered from pneumonia but with so little work coming my way it has been very difficult to manage all that we are encountering. I want my...

A. Hagan


My name is A. Hagan. I am a 62 year old farmer residing in Ghana, Cape Coast, Odumano with 8 members of my family. Our only source of income is farm work and we have been struggling to fulfill the work.

As there are 8 members in the family, we need a decent amount of money just for daily essentials like food and medicine. Everyone in the family is working hard and trying their best to support the family. We have a small mud house where all the family members live. We have barely enough to feed our family. I am old and too fragile to work hard in the field...

Ama Depkey


My name is Ama Depkey. I am a 39 yrs old woman residing in Ghana, Accra with my husband and four children. My husband, Francis, and I are the bread winners and our major source of income is selling groundnuts and maize.

We have always lived in poverty, but we are doing our best and working on a way to provide a better life for our children. My main issue right now is we have been deceived by the landlord of our house. They rented the house we live in to someone else at a higher price. I had to leave the...

Grace Aquah


My name is Grace Aquah. I am 28 years old and have three children. We live in a small mud house in Ghana, Cape Coast. I was divorced at a very young age and left to be the only bread-winner in the family.

I am desperately looking forward to opening a business as a hairdresser. There is a lot of equipment needed to open a salon but I don't have the financial stability to do that. I have been lacking to provide food and essential clothes for my children. As the only guide for the family, I have been so fragile, mentally and financially, that it's affecting my children...

Fatuma Najemba


My name is Fatuma Najemba from Bukekete. I am a 30 year old woman and a mother of two children. The father of my children sadly abandoned the family. He left us with no source of income. In order to support my kids, I work simple jobs and try to sell food. I am currently unable to pay for my children’s school fees. It is tough for a single woman to manage everything. My children currently live with their grandmother in the village but depend on me for their food and necessities. I rent a place to live, but I am struggling to pay my rent and provide for my children...
