Imagine a world where all children are allowed the opportunity to realise their full potential.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t always work out that way, but now more than ever there are children in Uganda who urgently need someone to try. By choosing to become a sponsor you can give a young person the chance to flourish, thrive and build a brighter future, often for as little as 85p a day.
