Structural help to children in Uganda

BVU The Foundation

With our project The Foundation we want to make a difference in the lives of children and orphans living in poverty in Uganda. We do this by supporting orphans through Christian Childcare Programme. A monthly sponsoring gives them the opportunity to go to school and receive medical care and counselling. Not in an orphanage, but with family. Next to this, we build bamboo houses for poor families in Uganda.

Supporting orphans

With the BVU The Foundation project we currently sponsor five orphans. Our goal is to sponsor 10 children in 2021. Sponsorship starts from the age of three years. From that age, the children can go to kindergarten and so on to primary and secondary education. Depending on the child’s talents, it moves on to higher education or vocational training. The maximum age up to which CCP supports a child is currently 23 years. The sponsor amount per child is € 29 per month.

Sponsoring a child yourself through The Foundation

Do you want to sponsor a child or children yourself or with your company? This is possible through The Foundation. Twice a year you will receive a letter from the child via the CCP secretariat. A social worker who is employed by CCP Uganda sometimes writes a report with any details about the development of the child. You will also receive a picture of the child every two years. Would you like to know more about monthly sponsoring? Get in touch with us!

Bamboo Construction Projects

In December 2019 we built a bamboo house for two sponsor children and their family. The BVU Foundation project of 2021 is to build a school, for approximately 50 children to receive education.

Uganda, like many sub-Saharan African countries, faces major challenges in providing quality and accessible basic education. Early learning and development is compromised by the lack of pre-schools and other early childhood development (ECD) programmes and qualified teachers, as well as limited awareness and appreciation of the importance of ECD. One out of every 10 children between 3 and 5 years of age is enrolled in pre-primary education. With The Foundation we aim to do something about that.
