Why Sponsor

Why sponsor a child?

When you decide to sponsor a child you give them hope for a better future. Your commitment gives a child encouragement knowing that someone across the world loves, cares, and prays for them. It also helps to provide for basic needs, health care, and education. At Empower a Child, we know that your decision to sponsor a child can change lives because that is the story of our founder, Wilson Kabeera.

Wilson grew up in a dire situation during a time of war in Uganda. A family in the United States made a decision to sponsor Wilson which changed his life forever. Wilson finished primary, high school, and graduated university; he then went on to found Empower a Child. Wilson’s sponsor made the choice to love and impact one child; in turn, Wilson’s work and legacy are now impacting the lives of thousands of children across East Africa.

Every generation has the ability to stand up and make a difference in their country and to mold a better future for it- one with less suffering, pain, and poverty than they had to endure as children. You can stand in the gap for these children and help raise up more impactful leaders through sponsorship. Join with us to help turn a life of poverty into a life of possibilities!
