When you sponsor an Orphan child through K.I.D.S. in Uganda, you are not only providing funds for a child and their family, you are becoming a part of the child’s family! Some ways that you can stay connected with K.I.D.S. that you support monthly are through prayer and writing letters. God can do great things through his peoples’ prayers and words of encouragement. Our African brothers and sisters love having us as a part of their family, and we are grateful to be a part of theirs!

Your contribution of $15 per month allows us to cover the basic necessities for K.I.D.S in Uganda orphans. An additional $15 per month helps to assure access to quality education. Once the majority of orphans have their basic sponsorship covered, we may relist some of the orphans for a second sponsorship in order to provide for a quality education. If you choose to sponsor a child, you will have a picture of your child and pertinent information. You can expect to receive updates on your child and personal correspondence. Likewise, you can send messages and photographs to your child.
No gifts or money are to be sent directly to the sponsored child without express approval of RVCC Mission Staff. Serious problems can arise from one child appearing to receive more and/or better things than others.
Your child will receive school tuition, uniform, and basic supplies. There will likely be at least one meal a week (on Saturday), and medications as needed. He or she will receive personalized attention in the form of family visits, spiritual guidance, and counseling. Depending upon resources, other specific needs may be addressed.
Your support funds will not be given directly to the child. Instead, staff will distribute funds as needed. The specific needs of one child may be greater than those of another, so funds may be pooled and distributed at the discretion of responsible staff personnel.
A big advantage of this system is that these determinations are being made by nationals who not only know the child and family, but are also intimately familiar with local community and tribal customs and practices.
