Right now children are preparing for school,  many of our orphans, have not fees, books, cloths, shoes and registration fees that make them don’t have what they need to fit in. The stress in school can feel like the worst place in the world and always worried when they see other kids enjoying school. 

One in ten  orphans and young people  around the world are growing up in poverty, where even the bare necessities are hard to come by. In a family where there is no regular income, the small amount of money goes on food and medical issues ( AIDS Victims). Finding money for a school material such as  uniform, proper shoes, textbooks or the next school  fees is often stressful and impossible.

we appeal for only $20  per month, your sponsorship combined with that of another sponsor, will provide a child with essential school supplies, a new uniform, food and life-changing learning support, so they can  live without ongoing stress, so can fit in and catch up to their peers Mostly, Australian indigenous communities,  project in Kenya , Uganda, Somalia, South Sudan, Burundi, Ethiopia, Congo and CRA.

The Donation you give for  Life sponsorship program recognizes that disadvantaged children need extra support to stay at school and go on to further studies or employment regardless of who they are.

So when a child is sponsored through UFVRA, as well as financial assistance with purchasing school essentials, the CHILD is also paired with a Learning for Life Coordinator. The Learning for Life Coordinator offers the child encouragement & support with their schooling; links students and their fosters families to learning and mentoring programs in their community and helps children and young people to fully participate in their education where ever they are.

All of your sponsorship benefit a child you you sponsored. 

In Uganda, Kenya and South Sudan On average, orphan growing up in disadvantaged fostered home are three to four years behind their more advantaged peers. Not right at all.

The impacts of poverty are severe and far reaching. When they start school, many Orphans in disadvantaged foster families are behind in basic leanings, like reading and math skills, lacking the essentials they need to fully participate in their studies. Without the skills they need to keep up in class, these children can fall even further behind, making it more difficult for them to stay engaged and motivated at school.

Without early intervention, these orphans can fall so far behind it is almost impossible to catch up with the rest of their peers
