In Luguru, more than 90% of the people depend on traditional smallholder farming. However, unreliable rainfall means crop yield is inconsistent and young children are often malnourished.

Sponsorship is helping to tackle three challenges facing children in Luguru:
  1. With schools far away and a shortage of teachers, it's hard to get an education.
  2. Without access to health services, kids can die from preventable diseases.
  3. Families struggle to grow enough food, so kids go hungry.

Your support is making a life-changing impact for children in Luguru.


3,267 children under 2 years benefitted by breastfeeding and by their mothers feeding them iron-fortified foods.


1,370 students were able to access clean drinking water at school so they can have a better learning environment.


156 people from 22 faith communities received training on child rights so children are better protected.


1,365 most vulnerable children and their needs were identified to ensure they are cared for and protected.


Partnering together for a sustainable future.

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

Your support is helping Luguru 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 Luguru community.

“My family cultivated sweet potatoes from cuttings and now I am able to get enough food to eat. We also sell the surplus to buy the things my family needs.”
