or make a one-time donation of any amount to our child sponsorship fund

Thank you for choosing to join our SPONSORSHIP TEAM; stepping in to do whatever it takes to save, protect and empower the most vulnerable children in rural Uganda.

Each child has a different story to tell, but one thing they all have in common is the need for unconditional love, education, and mentorship. Your donation will help support their school costs (fees, stationaries, uniforms, etc), clothing, feeding, and healthcare, among others.

When you sponsor a child, you will receive regular progress reports and have an opportunity to exchange letters with them. Best of all, you will foster a lasting connection across borders.

If you have any questions, please CONTACT us via our email address: info@ecfintl.org  –  we will be glad to help

There are many barriers to education in Sub-Saharan Africa: not enough schools, not enough teachers, not enough resources. These are macro problems that concern governments, the World Bank, and the UN. On the ground, however, at the level of families trying to make decisions about the education of their children, there is generally one overriding barrier: COST. Most of us in the developed world are not aware that poor families must spend 33% or more of their total household income in school fees and other education expenses.  Fortunately, of all the barriers to education, school fees may be the easiest to resolve, at least when viewed from the perspective of a single child. ECFI Inc. is dedicated to resolving the school fees crisis, one donor and one child at a time.
