Donations FAQ

How much of my donations actually do towards the work in Uganda?

It is our goal that the highest percent of your donation goes directly to the work being done in Uganda. When donating online a very small percent of your donation goes towards paypal fees, everything else goes directly to the work in Uganda or the cause you donated specifically towards.

Can I donate things for the children- like shoes, clothing, toothbrushes, etc.?

Yes! Please look at our Items Needed page for more information.

 

Can I mail donations/gifts to Uganda?

Yes! You can mail gifts to Uganda, although it can become expensive. For more information please contact us. If you wish to send a gift to your sponsor child please look in the Sponsorship FAQ. If you wish to send gifts or letters to our directors or staff on the ground please contact us! We love receiving mail!

If you wish to donate a large amount of items you can also consider filling a suitcase for us and donating to pay the extra baggage fee for us to bring the suitcase with us to Uganda. Any other items donated will be brought over when we are able.
