The story so far
Child Education Sponsorship Project
We believe that the cycle of poverty which is prevalent in so many areas of the world can ultimately only be alleviated through education and that a Childs life can be transformed by equipping them with the knowledge necessary to enable them to live a full and productive life.
With this aim New Mind International Ministries have founded the ‘Little Stars’ sponsorship scheme to enable those children within the communities in Uganda in which we work to be able to attend school.
We are currently focusing on the Kiti village area in Wakiso district where our Ugandan base is located. Kiti village is a poor community with a high unemployment rate with many families living below the universally recognised poverty line and, as a consequence, there are many children who cannot attend school as their families cannot afford the fees.
‘Sarah’ was left orphaned when her father was killed in a farming accident in 2017, she and her siblings went to live with her elderly grandparents who care for a total of 12 children in 2 rooms. Her grandparents do the best they can for the children but are unable to provide money for an education, ‘Sarah’ was sponsored in September 2018 and has thrived in school, she is now a happy outgoing 6 year old who’s life has been transformed through the Little Stars sponsorship project.

Children Awaiting Sponsorship
At New Mind Ministries we work with our Uganda Local Coordinator, Thomas Kibirige, to identify the most vulnerable and needy children.
Below we share a sample of children who are currently looking for education sponsorship.
Sponsors Two Boys
It is a joy to be able to be a small part of their lives. I receive regular updates, letters, photos and very encouraging school reports. All a joy to receive.
Sponsors One Boy
I first saw the picture of a boy having to work to pay for his own school fees. I signed up to sponsor him. The change in him and the hope now in his life is amazing
Sponsors Two Boys, One Girl
The importance of education cannot be underestimated. With sponsorship we know that the children will go to school and learning will impact their futures.
OUR PLEDGE TO YOU
Our undertaking to those who choose to sponsor a child is that 100% of the sponsorship money will go to the child.
