The Impact

Educating Children … Changing Lives

The LSEF child-centered focus to fighting poverty is distinctly different from other broader community development approaches. By changing the life of one child, there is an opportunity to break the cycle of poverty, which can eventually lead to the transformation of an entire community – and even a nation.

Our sponsorship program supports marginalized children in Uganda through access to quality Catholic education, spiritual development and mentoring services.  Sponsors form meaningful relationships with their students through the exchange of letters and photos.  This lasting bond impacts both the child and the sponsor by opening their eyes and hearts in new ways and by creating a better understanding of cultural differences. Truly God's hand is at work when sponsors and students in need connect.
