Sponsor a Child with African Children Today

Sponsoring a child is a tangible and personal way to share God’s love with children in Uganda, Africa and make a HUGE difference in their lives.  For only $35 per month, you will provide life-changing opportunities for a child: a solid education plus basic nutrition, medical assistance and community support. By sharing letters and photographs, you will build a special relationship and bring HOPE and LOVE to your sponsored child.  Your  friendship and financial support will impact your sponsored child in immeasurable ways, giving them an education and a future full of possibilities!

Waving children

African Children Today (ACT) is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping women and children in Rakai, Uganda. The Rakai district of Uganda is ground zero of the AIDS epidemic, with thousands of children orphaned and in great need of help. ACT directs 100% of all product sales back to the Ugandan women who produce jewelry from recycled magazines and create hand-woven grass baskets. With this income, the underserved women are able to feed and educate their own children as well as orphans in the village, and thus provide HOPE for a better future!
