How can I help?
There are many ways that you can join us in Divine Care Ministries. One of the ways many people begin is with the sponsorship of a child. For $50 per month a child will be provided with education including school fees, uniform and supplies, housing, food, health and dental care as needed through secondary school. For $200 per month a child in university level will be provided for. We are also providing spiritual encouragement and instruction because hope is one of the things most needed by these vulnerable children. You will hear from your child about three times a year, and we encourage you to write back so that your child will feel your love. Thank you for partnering with us. For questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

When you help a girl like Irene, there is potential for lasting change throughout the entire community.
Tendo Susan | Age: 11 | Grade: 5

Nakyagaba Cissy | Age: 8 | Grade: 2
In Cissy’s home, her mother is the only one who is able to provide for the family.

We believe that girls like Aisha will be the ones who bring hope to the community, and a transformative light as she gains the assistance she is in need of.
