As a sponsor, you’ll help provide your student with a top-rate education, school meals, medical care, clean water, school uniforms, books, school supplies, and sanitary napkins for girls. You can look forward to receiving photos and updates from your student throughout the year so you can see how you are empowering these children to succeed.
As a sponsor, you are connected to just one child. However, sponsored children do not receive direct cash benefits. Your monthly donation is pooled for maximum effectiveness - meaning sponsored children do not receive these funds directly. Your support is combined with those of other sponsors to fund long-term community development programs that benefit your sponsored student and their community, as well as other children in need.
Your sponsorship is an ongoing commitment that helps your sponsored child and their community create better lives for themselves and their families. We work with children from the moment they are born, usually around age 5, all the way through vocational training or University. You may stop your sponsorship at any time but your ongoing support allows you to see your student grow and mature from a hopeless young child to a future change agent!
Each child is matched with only one sponsor. We work diligently to ensure every FOBI student has the opportunity to be sponsored. Through this sponsorship you have the opportunity to create a relationship with your student through letters, pictures and videos. Several sponsors have visited their students in rural Uganda, and we welcome you to do the same!
