Join us by hosting an exciting educational sponsored event - Give and Learn Day! This special sponsorship day for schools is dedicated to fostering a connection between students. Choose your own date for the event, and embrace the rich cultural heritage of Uganda whilst raising funds for the education of underprivileged Ugandan students. Child of Hope Uganda is thrilled to invite both Primary and Secondary schools to participate in this enriching event, where children can experience the joy of learning just like their Ugandan peers.

Immerse in Ugandan Culture: Immerse your students in the vibrant traditions of Uganda. From learning traditional Ugandan dances to speaking in Kiswahili - this event promises a culturally immersive experience that goes beyond the classroom.

Sponsorship for Learning: By asking your pupils to get sponsored for participating in Give and Learn Day, you contribute to a powerful cause. Your support helps underprivileged Ugandan children access education. Through your sponsorship, you empower these children to embrace learning with passion and dedication.
