WAYS TO DONATE
There is no free education in Uganda, and good schools are expensive. In addition, tuition and other costs increase greatly as children advance in their academic studies. Today the average cost of educating one of Jajja’s Kids is $1,100 annually!
Because of high poverty levels as well as the high cost of education, only 25% of Ugandans complete elementary school. We are proud that all of our children are in school or trade programs, where they are THRIVING!
A donation of $50 a month helps sponsor a child’s education.
A donation of $150 a month sponsors their basic needs as well as education.
As both the children and program grew, we outgrow our rented house and our children needed the stability and security of a permanent home to call their own.
By January 2019 we had raised $75,000 to purchase a partially constructed house. Renovations are nearly complete and our children moved in November 2019. With the help of the community, we salvaged and renewed the bed frames, tables, and chairs from the old house.
Any donations made towards the house will help provide new mattresses, pavers for the front yard, and other household related items.
The operation of Jajja's Kids' general program currently costs
over $1,800 a month. This pays for:
Food and medicine for children and staff
Staff salaries in Uganda
Utilities; water, electric
Clothing and toiletries
Internet for communication with JK- USA (and sponsors!)
