Unlocking Potential: Sponsor a Shule Boy's Journey from Streets to Success
Our organization’s sponsorship program
Join us in transforming the lives of boys living on the streets and empower them to create a brighter future. At Shule Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting vulnerable children, we believe in offering more than just a handout. Through our sponsorship program, you have the extraordinary opportunity to extend a hand-up to these resilient boys, helping them break free from the cycle of street life and find their path to success.
A World of Inequality: Lighting the Way for Education
Across the globe, a staggering 132 million boys are denied the chance to receive an education. In Uganda alone, over 50% of boys face the heartbreaking reality of being denied access to learning opportunities. These statistics paint a vivid picture of the immense challenges these children face daily, with their dreams locked away and their potential untapped.
By partnering with Shule Foundation and becoming a sponsor, you become a beacon of hope for a child in desperate need. Your support provides a lifeline, igniting the spark of possibility within these boys and paving the way for a brighter tomorrow.
Empowerment through Education: The Shule Sponsorship Program
At Shule, we understand the power of education to transform lives. Our sponsorship program focuses on two key pillars: formal education and skills training. By sponsoring a Shule boy, you actively enable him to access formal schooling or vocational training, unlocking doors that were once firmly closed.
When you embark on this life-changing journey, you become more than a sponsor—you become a catalyst for change. Your compassionate investment opens up a world of opportunities for these boys, equipping them with the knowledge and skills needed to flourish and succeed in their chosen paths.
Preparing Tomorrow's Gentlemen: Your Impact
Through your sponsorship, you play a significant role in shaping the future of these remarkable boys. As they progress through their education and training, they gain valuable knowledge and develop crucial life skills and values that will guide them toward becoming socially aware, responsible, and financially independent gentlemen.
By investing in their education today, you are investing in a brighter tomorrow. Each Shule boy you sponsor has the potential to become a leader, a change-maker, and an inspiration to others. Your support ensures that their dreams are no longer bound by circumstance but fueled by limitless possibilities.
Take Action Today: Be the Change
Now is the time to make a profound impact on the lives of Ugandan street boys. Join us in our mission to break the chains of poverty and inequality by sponsoring a Shule boy. Your commitment, no matter the size, can create ripples of change that resonate far beyond the present moment.

Questions You May Have Before You Sponsor a Child
How long do I sponsor a child?
We know that sponsoring a child is a big commitment, especially financially. Before committing, please consider the following:
Our Formal Education Sponsorship Program is a long-term commitment. When signing up to sponsor a child who is pursuing formal education, we ask you to commit to completing that child's education - through university if that ends up being the case.
Our Technical and Vocational Sponsorship Program is a two-year commitment.
Can I visit the child?
Yes. You are more than welcome to visit your sponsored child. Please give us a call to find out how this is possible.
How often will I hear about the child? And from the child?
The relationship between you and your sponsored child will grow and develop through regular communications. Throughout the year, you can communicate with the child as much or as little as you want. However, we encourage you to get to know your sponsored child. We will update you at the end of every term on your sponsor child's progress. You will hear from your sponsored child at least twice a year.
Can I send gifts to my child?
Yes, but with limits. Elaborate gifts can set your child up for jealousy within the community or even a feeling of dependency on you rather than their parents.
Does the money go directly to the child/family?
No. Your sponsorship payments will be used to cover school fees that Shule pays directly to the school, requirements, and other items necessary for your child to excel in their learning (school supplies, extra tutoring, transportation), health and nutrition needs.
What does my monthly gift provide for the child?
Your sponsored child will have access to things like education, improved healthcare, and better nutrition. In addition, your monthly pledge provides resources that empower the child to succeed in their educational journey.
Is this a real child/how many sponsors does each child have?
Shule connects a single child with a single sponsor. As long as you continue your monthly sponsorship, no one else will sponsor that child.
Can I have communication with my child?
Absolutely! We encourage you to write to your sponsored child. Through consistent monthly support, letters, and prayers, you and your sponsored child build a relationship that benefits both of you.
