A portion of Gatatu Safari’s earnings are contributed to the causes of Mwendo Project- a non-profit Ugandan organization established to help the poor children and orphans of Mwendo in order to gain access to education, adequate nutrition and awareness on moral values.
A non-profit Ugandan organization founded in 2005 by Richard Tusasibwe, the Managing Director of Gatatu Safaris Limited. It operates in Mwendo Parish Kabale District and was established to address a number of problems in his community, which included rape, sexual immorality, school dropout, and contraction of HIV disease.
Currently, Mwendo Needy Children and Orphans Uganda is working with 2 schools to make sure that these children get support from our program. We support a total of 700 children.
Mwendo-James Primary School- 300 children
Mwendo-James Nursey and Primary School- 600 children
Mwendo Needy children and Orphans Uganda also provide sponsorship for children in secondary school or high school. Currently there are 37 Children who are in secondary and high school levels. There are other 3 students joining the University this year.
Upon completion of primary and secondary education, students can enroll in different institutions as they please. However, Uganda Christian University and Makerere University in Uganda are the Key Universities where Mwendo Needy children and Orphans Uganda send their Students to get better Education.
Sponsor a Child
You can sponsor a child’s education age 3 and up. Although the sponsor can choose his/her beneficiary, we encourage equality and therefore do not recommend to choose based on gender among other factors. The amount covers the expenses for food, uniform, shoes, medical support such as HIV test*, dental check-up, and anti-malaria medication.
Children in primary school:
- 40 usd per month for primary children
- 480 usd per year
Children in secondary school:
- 260 usd per term
- 780 usd per year
* Additional 20 usd
Some sponsors prefer to send annual sponsorships while others opt for 6 months at at time. This is solely upon the sponsor’s discretion. However, we recommend annual terms due to the transfer or bank charges involved.
Every sponsor will receive updates about the progress and status of his/her beneficiary. This can be in the form of report cards, photos, or letters from the student if they are able to write.
