Change the Life of a Child Today
Every child deserves the best start in life– the best chance for a successful future and to live a happy, healthy and meaningful life. But there are too many children across the world that aren’t getting the chance to reach their full potential.
By sponsoring a child today, you get to change that.
By sponsoring a child today, you get to give them a brighter, better future
How Our Child Sponsorship Works
By Sponsoring a child through Ecologia Youth Trust, we can offer you opportunity to develop a warm and personal connection and lasting friendship with a child from one of our projects.
Your support not only helps a child feel that they are cared for, but provides them with a safe and caring place to live, an education and the chance to fulfil their potential, but through regular letters and updates from your child, you’ll gain a unique insight into their lives.
There are a couple of ways that you can choose to support a child in one of our projects. You can either sponsor a particular child in Russia, Kenya or Uganda, or you can sponsor a place for a child to go to school and receive a good education at Sky Is The Limit in Uganda or Tarnos School in Kenya.
The children we support like to think of their sponsors as Godparents because this offers a child, who may have lost their parents or family, a valuable and important feeling that there is someone special in the world who cares about them.
Sponsor an Abandoned Child Like Albert
Albert and his brother Samuel are Internationally Displaced Persons (IDPs) from the post-election violence that happened in Kenya in 2008. Their family lost everything and came to Meru with nothing. Life has been difficult for Albert. His father does not support the family and his mother earns what she can by selling porridge around the local market.
Albert and Samuel now live at the Kithoka Amani Community Home as they were half-starving, not in school and their family unable to care for them due to extreme poverty. Now, they get a good education, learn vital life skills and training in organic farming to give them the best opportunity to succeed in live.
Give a Child Like Lilly Access to Education
In Uganda, only 1 out of 10 Primary school children continues to Secondary education.
Lilly comes from a family of 8 children. Her mother is a housewife, her father is a night-watchman who earns the equivalent of £16.56 per month. Lilly graduated from Primary School but her family is unable to raise enough money so she can go on to study at Secondary School.
Lilly loves Mathematics, and wants to train as a Doctor so she can help others in Uganda. She is hard working and her grades reflect that she is committed to her studies. Lilly hopes that you can support her to realise her dream and help to give her a better chance at a brighter future.
By giving £35 a month, you can be a hero to Lilly and others at the Sky Is The Limit Centre and help transform their lives so they can grow up healthy, safe and able to reach their full potential.
Vladimir moved to Kitezh when he was 9 years old. He doesn’t remember his biological parents, but knows that they died from alcohol poisoning. Before Kitezh, he would have to fend from himself, getting meals from neighbours, and wandered the streets of the city alone. At 6 years old he was placed in an orphanage, where he attended state school. His life was difficult and he was often teased by the other orphans, getting into fights almost every day He had few friends of his age, but found solace in the Library where he loved to read.
When Vladimir arrived at Kitezh, he saw life there was different to anything he had experienced before. He didn’t have to fight to survive. Instead he faced another challenge: learning new social skills. It took some time, but he learnt how to treat people as friends, how to help others, how to communicate and how to study.
With the continuous support from his foster family at Kitezh and his godparents, Vladimir went on to study law in at Moscow Academy of Economics and Law. The international law firm Baker Botts sponsored his university fees and accommodation, and gave him work as an intern. He has since graduated with a degree in law.
“Kitezh played a big role in my life and I think that all I have now, opportunities, experience behind my shoulders, friends, family is because of Kitezh. For the time that I lived there I understood that the world is not so bad and not aggressive for me and I can trust people who surround me.”
Thanks to the support from his godparents, his family at Kitezh, and the generosity from Baker Botts Law Firm, Vladimir’s future is bright.
