Sponsor a Student

It is widely known the benefit of higher education accrues to individual students and their families. Average earnings increase measurably with higher levels of education. Over their working lives, typical college graduates earn about 73 percent more than typical high school graduates. More educated people are less likely to be unemployed and less likely to live in poverty. When any of our UK Trustees or visitors go out to AVS Uganda they get the chane to meet with both past and present students which is always a delight and fills us with great pride. A huge thank you to our Student Sponsors, without you these bright, wonderful young people would not have the great fortune to be educated to the level they are.

Education can be the way out of poverty and into independence.

Nelima Catherine comes from a family of 7 children, who's father has died. Catherine is bright and came 2/88 in her class and is in SN.1 at Muyembe High. As she is so bright we should consider putting her into our hostel to give her the best chance of continuing to do well as she is being pushed to look after the rest of the family. Without the father the mother can no longer afford fees. For one year the fee's would be £180 or £15 per month. If you can help contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

We sponsor over 50 children through secondary school and higher education and are making a big difference to the lives of many young children.

Focus on students:

Tasike Fred


Fred has a disability which means that he is unable to use his hands fully. He is an academically able student but was unable to achieve the necessary passes in science because of his inability to succeed in his practical exams.

He came to us looking for a solution and has now enrolled in an agricultural college training to be a trainer of farmers. His life has now been changed through our support.

Nambuya Beatrice
Beatrice completed her enrolled Nursing Certificates at Mbale University and is now working for the Wototo Childrens Homes in Kampala. Beatrice, who was living with her grandmother,was struggling to stay at secondary school because of lack of funds. Through our sponsorship she has now got a life enhancing profession.

A small amount can help change a child’s life.
