HOPE STREET | UGANDA (STREET BOYS)
When you are a young man in the slums of Uganda who is homeless, hungry and without family the prospect of attending school or getting a good job are impossible in the slums of Uganda. HCI is thrilled to partner with Real Angel's Boarding School and Hope Street Uganda to provide sponsorships for these precious young men. Educational or vocational training is their only hope of survival.
Real Angel's Boarding School was started in 2013 by Mrs. Sarah Kyasooka, wife of HCI Partner, Pastor Nelson Kyasooka of Grace Fellowship Ministries in Uganda. She has welcomed these former street boys into her village school with open arms and she has offered tuition at no cost but, there is no food or supplies available for the boys.
$30 per month provides them with personal care items and food needed while in school. If you would like to help but cannot commit to monthly sponsorship of a boy, please consider a one-time donation of $100 to Real Angels School Fund.
Hope Street Uganda was started by "Uncle Abby" -(Abdul Galiwego) and other former street boys now Christian men, educated, dedicated and determined. HSU originally began under Grace Fellowship Ministries but became an independent ministry in 2014. They minister to literally hundreds of boys living on the street every week.
$30 per month provides food and personal items for boys with health-challenges living at the Hope Street House or for those attending school. A one-time donation of $250 provides an apprenticeship for a street boy to learn a trade and become self-sufficient.
It's so easy to make a difference!
