You can select a child now!
Thank you so much for your interest! We thank God for every sponsor who steps forward to change a child's life! Believe us . . . child sponsors are changing lives! As you read the biographies of our children, you will see that some of the children need an education sponsor, others need a boarding sponsor, and still other children need both. All of our children are from villages in Northern Uganda that have suffered much devastation.
Naman is one of two children who live with their parents in the village of Abongomola in Northern Uganda. He is the only one in his family in good health, as his mother, father, and sister are all suffering from different illnesses.
Naman’s mother has a problem with her knee and her eyes. His sister, Rozan, has been taken to different hospitals for a heart problem that has yet to be diagnosed. Naman’s father has had chest pain and a constant cough for a long time, resulting in being instructed by his doctor not to do any hard work.
Being peasant farmers and unable to work has placed this family in a very challenging situation. The little money they can generate goes toward medical expenses and doesn’t allow for school fees, which has led to Naman always being sent back home from school.
This family is in great need of someone to stand in the gap for them. Sponsorship of Naman would give him the security of two meals a day and the knowledge that he won’t be sent away from school. Meeting this need would truly be life-changing for Naman. Even more, you would bring the love of Jesus to a hurting family, reminding them that they are not alone.
Naman needs an education sponsor for $35/month.
Malliam is the youngest of five children who live with their mother, Helen, in the village of Akalo. According to the EWT social worker who visited the home, this family is in an absolute state of poverty. They all live in one hut that has a leaky roof and no kitchen area. With cooking being done only outdoors, rainy days prohibit any food preparation. Circumstances have been difficult for years, but Helen has been doing her best to single-handedly raise her children.
In 2002, Helen met a man who came to her village during the Joseph Kony war. They were married, had children and moved to Ateri village, where the father worked as a security guard at a farm. He later disappeared, living Helen with the children. After two weeks of no communication from her husband, Helen was forced to move her family back to her parental home in Akalo.
Helen shared with the EWT social worker, "I have no land to grow food for my children. My livelihood is working in other people's gardens in order to raise money for buying my children food. Life is really hard for me but God is still keeping me and my children. I really think about how their future holds now that they have no land and are unable to have an education as well."
Malliam's future doesn't have to be bound by the difficult circumstances in which she currently lives. Sponsorship will place her in a quality school where she will receive an education, enjoy two meals a day and learn of her God-given potential. What a cause for celebration this would be for a family who has so little, but knows who holds them in the palm of His hand.

Jonathan, who has occasionally suffered from epilepsy, is one of 12 children born to Jimmy Joe and Grace. This large family lives together in the village of Akalo, where witchcraft has been prevalent for a long time. Jimmy Joe, however, has taken the Word of God into this place and is watching lives being transformed. He and Grace are committed to shining light into the darkness of the community in which they live.
As a pastor, Jimmy Joe receives little income. The family's other means of livelihood is subsistence farming but it falls short of providing even the basics. Whatever food is produced is consumed by the family and nothing is left for sale. This results in no money for clothing, medical needs or school fees.
Jonathan does have the blessing of having parents who love the Lord but he doesn't have the opportunity to attend a good school. Sponsorship of this ten-year-old would make the way for him to receive a quality education, enjoy two meals a day and learn of his God-given potential. Jonathan and his parents would surely rejoice in God's provision through you and would feel great love and encouragement.

Stephen is the youngest of seven children. When he was only one, his father walked out on the family. This left the mother, Betty, to take full responsibility in providing for and raising her children.
Betty is a peasant farmer and depends solely on the crops as a source of income. When the father left, he gave only a small piece of land, which was large enough for their hut, but not for farming. So, Betty has to rent land for planting in order to bring food to their table and to sell. Her efforts result in only one meal per day for their family and no extra income to pay for school fees.
For too long, this family has been without help and hope. Now is the time to bring both. Think of the difference it will make in Stephen’s life to attend a school where he will eat two hot meals a day, receive a great education and learn of his God-given potential. Think of the encouragement and support it will bring to Betty. Think of how this precious family will feel the love of Jesus.

Sadness and hardship have defined Timothy’s life. His mother passed away, and then his father died in an accident last year. Timothy is the youngest of five children who all live together in the remote village of Abongomola.
The oldest child, Tonny, has assumed the responsibilities of raising his siblings. This is a heavy burden for this 25-year-old, who also suffers from sickle cell anemia. He experiences attacks frequently, making it difficult for him to farm, which is the only source of income and provision for their one meal a day.
Living in a family headed by a sick brother, Timothy is growing up without the love of parents and any hope of change. This family desperately needs someone to stand in the gap for them. Your sponsorship of Timothy will place him in EWT’s community Christian school, where he will receive 2 hot meals a day and a good education. Not only will you change his daily life, you are giving him a future. Even more, you will be the love of Jesus to this family

Emmanuel lives in the remote village of Abongomola with his father and his grandparents. At age 4, he has already experienced much sadness and hardship.
Emmanuel’s father, Bosco, is living positively with HIV/AIDS. In 2017, he declined treatment and soon after experienced a strong attack that almost cost him his life. This incident and the counsel of others convinced Bosco to be treated. He is faring better but is still too weak to do anything constructive. This alone has challenged the family. But then just two months ago, in September, Emmanuel’s mother passed away. Now Emmanuel’s grandparents are faced with trying to provide for both him and his father, yet they have no income.
There is no money for school fees. There is no hope for Emmanuel to have a bright future. Help has to come. And, it can come through you. Sponsorship of Emmanuel would place him in the EWT community Christian school, NISSI, and would give great cause for celebration for this hurting family.

Miriam is the third born in her family of five children. They all live with their parents, Isaac and Joan, in the remote village of Abongomola. With the many hardships this family faces, 9-year-old Miriam has not been able to stay in school.
Both Isaac and Joan are suffering from illnesses. This has weakened the family a lot because neither can do hard work like digging, which is the only income-generating activity they have. Also, both parents are on expensive treatments. Not able to afford even a dollar a day, Isaac and Joan can’t provide the fees needed for Miriam to attend school.
With no change in sight for their desperate plight, there is no chance in sight for Miriam to know her God-given potential. Without a sponsor for her education, she will continue to only dream of attending school and to wonder what she could do. With your help though, Miriam’s life will be changed and possibilities will become realities.

Daniel is an eight-year-old boy living in Northern Uganda with his mother and seven siblings. Daniel’s father died in the summer of 2018 due to pancreas and liver issues, leaving Daniel’s mother (Betty) alone to care for the children.
Betty now has too many responsibilities with no reliable source of income. One of the children, Winnie, is retarded, requiring special attention, and another child, Gloria, is prone to bouts of cerebral malaria.
Unfortunately, this family is not able to prioritize education and is forced to spend their little income on healthcare. Your sponsorship of Daniel would be an answered prayer for a desperate family.

Life has been very challenging for Allan’s family since the death of his father in 2014. After his passing, none of the in-laws offered support to the mother, Vicky, instead they took this family’s land. So, they literally lost all they had. In an attempt to find comfort and support, Vicky opted to return to her parents’ home. She later remarried in 2016.
Vicky does manual work in people’s gardens for a living. Because of her hard work, she has often felt weary and low. But Vicky has a new source of strength and hope, as she has accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior. She and her husband now fellowship in the church at the EWT Center. Vicky testifies that through attending church services and learning the Bible, she has learned that having faith in God can turn situations around.
A life-changing way this family could see God’s faithfulness and His provision is through sponsorship of Allan. This 13-year-old has a strong desire to learn but money has not been available for him to continue in school. As his sponsor, you would be giving Allan the opportunity to fulfill his dream and be a source of Jesus’ love to his entire family.
Allan needs an education/boarding sponsor for $70/month.
Sadia is a five-year-old girl from Eastern Uganda, living in a remote village with her Aunt Agnes and cousins. Sadia came to live with them when she was one-year-old, after Agnes discovered Sadia and her mother on the brink of death due to starvation.
Sadia’s father was not in the picture at that time, and her mother was living with HIV/AIDS. She could not afford to buy or look for food, as she had been bedridden for some time. Agnes is determined to care for Sadia, but it has been a struggle, as she already had numerous biological children of her own.
Though Agnes provides Sadia with food and shelter, she is not in a position to pay for school, and there is no hope for an education. Agnes needs someone to stand with her as she sustains Sadia, and to give the child an opportunity both to be educated and to achieve her God-given potential.
Sadia needs an education sponsor for $35/month.
Hamson is the seventh-born of ten children who all live with their parents in the village of Abongomola. These children are blessed to have parents who love the Lord. The father, Erick, has served tirelessly to teach others about Jesus throughout his community. Erick carries out his work for the Lord despite the difficult living situation of his family.
Erick applies his good work ethic to providing for his family but his efforts are hindered. His source of livelihood is subsistence farming, but it produces little income. The piece of land they own is small and unproductive. Erick has to rent more land to farm in order to get enough food for the children. There is never money left to pay school fees for the children.
Nine-year-old Hamson has little hope of ever attending a good school. By saying “yes” to sponsoring him, you would change the course of his life. Hamson would attend NISSI Christian School, which is the community school started by EWT. Your support and love would also greatly bless Erick, who has given so much of himself for the Lord and this ministry, and would encourage the entire family.
