Raising Up A Generation Of Once Forgotten Children
The Batwa children have been forgotten by society. Thought of as animals by local tribes, we are raising up a new generation of children through our sponsorship program which focuses in on education, health care, and nutritional feeding program.
Local tribes consider the Batwa to be animals and they are highly discriminated against. The children cannot go to local schools or medical clinics because they are considered animals. According to a 2000 report by the BBC, 40% of the Batwa children die before the age of 5. Conditions have not changed since 2000. Through our sponsorship program, we are hoping that these numbers will begin to decline as the children will receive more consistent health care and food.
Giving online is quick and easy. $40 is a month is all it takes to sponsor a child on a monthly basis.

You can also choose to give an extra $25 on your child's birthday month and at Christmas to make these two days extra special for your sponsored child!
