How can you help?

This is a non-governmental endeavor and you can contribute in many different ways:

  •    Direct Donation by check; cashier’s check, money order or Western Union
  •    Subscription Donation – a recurring monetary donation on a monthly basis
  •    Sponsor A Child – For $24 USD per month your contribution will help support a needy child. You will receive a Sponsorship Guide containing information about your child in particular and the program in general. Your contribution will support programs allowing for enhanced education and food supplies to children in need. These funds will ensure societal changes which will provide for the child’s healthy future.

Thank you all for making a difference!

Child Sponsorship -Help us bring food, supplies, and education to the children in need

Children who are affiliated with Light School Uriri are waiting for sponsorship. Once a child is sponsored, they are guaranteed food every day, good clothing, and paid school fees. Without sponsorship, the children are dependent on the availability of funds within the school.

Deciding to sponsor a child can change both your life and the life of the child. You can either choose a specific child to sponsor or let us choose one for you. We will send you information about your child every six months and we encourage you to write letters and send pictures to your child, in return they will write back.

Our Sponsorship Programs allows a surrogate family to help support financially and emotionally these children. For some orphans, yours will be the only family they will have to call their own.

Keeping In Touch With Your Sponsored Child:

You can send pictures and letters to the children so they will know who is supporting and caring for them. In return, you’ll receive letters, report cards, pictures, and video e-mails periodically throughout the year.

Transforming Lives:

The children will get the sense of belonging that only a family (even one thousands of miles away) can provide. Choose a child to sponsor and feel the joy of being a global parent. Both of your lives will change forever.

How It Works:

Light School Uriri only assigns one sponsor per child, which allows the development of a personal one-on-one connection. As soon as you sign up for a sponsorship, we will send you a packet with information and a picture of your child, and information about the Sponsorship program, as well as and how you can get more involved.

We will update you throughout the year about how your child is doing and we will provide updates about your child’s home.

Light School Uriri is a non-profit organization and most of the programs are run by proceeds from sale of our farm surplus and donations.

  1. Sponsoring a child
  2. Support 10-teaching staff and 2 cooks salaries
