Lalogi-Lakwana community is in northern Uganda. Here, most families grow their own food, but harvests are never enough for three meals a day.

Sponsorship is helping to tackle three challenges facing children:
  1. Quality of education is an issue. Only 38% of students in grade 6 can understand what they read.
  2. Families struggle to provide three meals a day for their children.
  3. Kids don't feel safe and many are vulnerable to violence and early marriage.

"Before the savings training, we would always start the new year broke. We are so happy now, because we can make plans for what we want to buy with the money we are saving." – Patricia, pictured centre
