The cost of the programs outlined below is covered by generous sponsors for each child. Typically, we pair one sponsor with one child to encourage a relationship. Shared sponsorships are available as well. Check out the Sponsorship page for opportunities to sponsor a child.
No, some of the children have one parent that is alive. However, these parents are not able to provide basic necessities for their children and choose to enroll their child in our program.
The monthly sponsorship covers the costs of basic necessities, such as housing, clothing, food, medical/dental care, immunizations, and education.
The cost is $125 per month for a single sponsor and $65 per month for a half sponsor. There is an additional cost of $125 for the first month if the child is new to the program. This covers the cost of a mattress, clothing, supplies, and a full medical evaluation including treatment.
Other programs find multiple sponsors per child, which typically cost around $1 per day. With Peace for Paul, you are one of up to two sponsors for that particular child and your sponsorship covers the cost of all necessities. We strive to provide as much for our children as we possibly can, offering much more than does the average orphanage or foster home.
– Your timely financial support is extremely important in keeping your child in the program and enabling us to provide all necessities for them.
– It is ideal for you to start and maintain a relationship with your child, through letter writing and sending photos. In many cases, they come to think of you as their family.
– While it’s not expected, we encourage you to visit your child.
– Annual backpacks are coordinated every other year (boys and girls alternate). It is a fun way for sponsors to get involved.
We provide housing, food, clothing, and security in a healthy environment with support, supervision and socialization. The Peace for Paul children are given the necessary tools to grow and to become functioning citizens of their community, in order to break the cycle of poverty they were born into. We are working with one child at a time and firmly believe that we CAN change the world one life at a time.
Each home is managed by one social worker and three care takers, as well an Operations Manager that oversees the entire program in Uganda.
The PFP Junior Program allows us to help a larger number of needy Ugandan children to obtain an education. The children who benefit from our PFP Junior Program live in our neighborhood and are unable to afford school fees, uniform fees and school supplies. Because they have families to look after them, these children do not live in our home. Rather, these children live with their families and are sponsored through PFP for education and medical costs only.
The majority of our children attend Victoria Primary School where they receive a quality education. We work closely with the school administration to ensure they excel in their school environment.
During school holidays, while the children are at home, we keep them busy and learning with supplemental education programs including:
• Novel Reading Program
• Computer Literacy
• Moral Code
• Sex Education (age appropriate)
• Health and Hygiene
• Self-respect and respecting others
• and more
Learning assistance is provided to children struggling in a subject when they are home from school during holidays.
Each child’s progress from the moment they begin school is tracked, with a minimum average required to obtain either a University or Trade School scholarship. A bachelor’s degree equivalent from a University typically takes three years to obtain, while Trade School can be anywhere from 2-12 months to complete.
University Scholarship – covers the cost of tuition, fees, books and housing.
Trade School Scholarship – covers the cost of fees and housing.
Children are provided with ongoing medical treatment including well-child checkups, treatment for various illnesses, surgeries as needed, and vaccination against typhoid, measles, polio and others.
A dental exam is performed every six months, along with any follow-up work. Dentures or tooth replacements are available to children who have lost one or more of their adult teeth.
Annual checkups are provided as well as treatment for issues that are identified.
Provided to children who have emotional or psychological needs beyond those we can address at the homes.
