The key mission of Shelter Them is to provide aid to vulnerable children. The ultimate goal is to put support in place to enable these children to develop in a safe, secure, loving environment, with the necessities of life being provided for.
Shelter Them has a Child Sponsorship Program which allows individuals to provide direct support to a child and to build a personal relationship with them. Sponsors get periodic updates via email and letters and in the case of older children, the opportunity to contact their children directly via email and/or messaging services. Our children love the opportunity to build a bond with someone who cares about them. They want you to be proud. See the video of sponsors sharing their experience.
Sponsorship contributions provide for the total care of a child, providing a home, food, education and health care. 100% of the sponsorship amount goes directly for the care of the child, either in a Shelter Them home or with their family.
Sponsorship costs $40 per month. Each child has four sponsors. There are sponsorship opportunities for children in our homes or in Bugesera. There are a large numbers of children with needs.
