Sponsor a Student

It is widely known the benefit of higher education accrues to individual students and their families. Average earnings increase measurably with higher levels of education. Over their working lives, typical college graduates earn about 73 percent more than typical high school graduates. More educated people are less likely to be unemployed and less likely to live in poverty. When any of our UK Trustees or visitors go out to AVS Uganda they get the chance to meet with both past and present students which is always a delight and fills us with great pride. A huge thank you to our Student Sponsors, without you these bright, wonderful young people would not have the great fortune to be educated to the level they are.

Education can be the way out of poverty and into independence.

We always have students with potential and given an opportunity they would thrive in school and given an education they could make something of their lives. For example we have four students who we believe need to be given that chance. Shamida lives with her five siblings and mother who has mental issues. Shamida is very bright and was best in the district of Bulambuli and was highly recommended by her head teacher for sponsorship. Francis is blind and lives with his father who has gone to Kampala to find work. We would like to bring him home to Muyembe to be nearer his family and receive an education. Catherine is one of seven children who has been doing extremely well in school however recently her father died and her mother can no longer afford to put her through education. Eric has no hands, burnt off by his step-mother, he has potential and comes to the community centre most days to be around people.

We would like to find sponsor for education and boarding for these four children and for as little as £10 per month you can help students just like Shamida who are looking for a sponsor to help return them to school and help realise their full potential.

We sponsor over 50 children through secondary school and higher education and are making a big difference to the lives of many young children.

Thank you African Village Support student donors for the Education Support that has enabled students like Bwayo Francis to complete his Bachelor's degree in Education, Mulungu Mulani degree in Procurement and Logistics and Nasila Jackline a diploma in Records Management all from the Islamic University in Uganda

Tasike Fred


Fred has a disability which means that he is unable to use his hands fully. He is an academically able student but was unable to achieve the necessary passes in science because of his inability to succeed in his practical exams.

He came to us looking for a solution and has now enrolled in an agricultural college training to be a trainer of farmers. His life has now been changed through our support.

Nambuya Beatrice
Beatrice completed her enrolled Nursing Certificates at Mbale University and is now working for the Wototo Childrens Homes in Kampala. Beatrice, who was living with her grandmother,was struggling to stay at secondary school because of lack of funds. Through our sponsorship she has now got a life enhancing profession.

A small amount can help change a child’s life.
