Odupi community is in the West Nile region and is one of Uganda’s poorest communities. Now home to South Sudanese refugees who crossed the border to escape violence with more than 80% being women and children, including kids who’ve been separated from their parents.

Sponsorship is helping to tackle three challenges facing children in Odupi:
  1. Many kids can’t read or understand what they read, and school drop-out rates are high.
  2. Tensions can exist between refugee and host families.
  3. Children are vulnerable to violence and early marriage.

Partnering together for a sustainable future.

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

Your support is helping Odupi 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, changing mindsets and behaviours to address the root causes of poverty. We’re focusing on building trust and developing a long-term action plan for Odupi community.

Lake Victoria, Uganda

Winston Churchill referred to Uganda as the “Pearl of Africa” on his tour there in 1908 and the name has stuck.

Uganda’s dense forests, mountain ranges, lakes and savannas have enticed travellers for decades.

Filled with breath-taking landscapes and an abundance of flora and fauna – including the so-called African big 5 (lions, elephants, leopards, buffalos and rhinos).

Uganda is also home to Lake Victoria, the second biggest lake in the world and one of the sources of the Nile River.
