Sponsorship brings life changing differences to orphaned and vulnerable children in Northern Uganda. You have the power to change a life! Their prayers are simple: school fees, food, shoes, the love of a family. Sponsors develop a long-term relationship with a child through pictures, letters and even visits to Acres of Hope when possible.
Frequently Asked QuestionsView all FAQ's
Are my contributions to Acres of Hope International, including my child sponsorship support and gifts, tax-deductible?
Yes. Acres of Hope International is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization as your sponsorship contributions are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
As a sponsor, how else can I learn about the child I am helping?
In addition to letters from your sponsored child, we will send you monthly newsletters about current events at Acres of Hope. You'll get a better understanding of your sponsored child's culture and life. We also organize trips to visit Acres of Hope every year and you are cordially invited to join us!
Will I be the only person sponsoring the child I'm helping?
Yes. The child you're helping has just one sponsor: You. That's why your prayers, letters and support mean so much to your sponsored child. Even if you choose to sponsor a child as a family or a group (for example, a youth group or a Sunday school class), the child you help will still be relating to your family or group as his or her only sponsor. No other group or individual will also sponsor the child you help.
What our Sponsors Say
Kati, Northway Church, TexasI wasn't sure what to expect when arriving in Uganda for the first time. I quickly realized that these are special people, unlike any other. Acres of Hope is a light in the dark and I am so excited to not only continue working with Geoffrey, but also sweet Priscilla. I connected with her from the beginning and felt led to sponsor her. I can wait to watch her grow and see how the Lord works in her life. This is only the beginning!
Derek, KSSaying our goodbyes was definitely the hardest part of the entire trip. It was even more difficult because Samson was really struggling with me leaving. It is truly amazing the bond that you build with a child that you sponsor. For that child, you are their family. You will never be able to understand how important you are to that child. Many tears were shed as we drove away for the last time.
Pat, West UMC, NCBeing a sponsor of Yona is more than just about money, it is about making a difference and offering hope. It is about the love between us, through letters we offer each other words of encouragement, love, and prayers.
