The Alito community is in northern Uganda and is one of Uganda’s poorest communities. Here, most families grow their own food, but harvests are never enough to feed their families or earn income.

Sponsorship is helping to tackle three challenges facing children in Alito:
  1. Many kids can’t read or write well, and school drop-out rates are high.
  2. Families can’t earn enough to provide for their children.
  3. Children are vulnerable to violence and early marriage.

Partnering together for a sustainable future.

By sponsoring children in Alito community, you are making an incredible difference in vulnerable children’s lives.

Your support is helping Alito community by improving the physical, emotional, spiritual and social well-being of the most vulnerable children.

Through decades of experience, we have proven that the most effective way to help a child is to strengthen their entire community, caring for every child along the way. In fact, because of these community-focused solutions, for every child you sponsor, 4 more benefit too!

Together, we are tackling the hard problems, such as changing mindsets and behaviours to address the root causes of poverty. We're focusing on building skills, hope and opportunity for the children of Alito community.
