Each ONE needs hope. Each ONE needs purpose. Each ONE needs education. Each ONE needs ONE to care.
The Starfish Programme began in 2002. It is a personal sponsorship plan to send young mothers or children at risk to school. Starfish Programme is run by Youth for Christ Uganda. How101 suppors the program from this side by finding sponsors, tracking payments, raising funds for yearly camp, promoting the programme, etc. We also sponsor the Starfish Camp each year for all the young mums and children in the programme. Monthly payments are through Youth for Christ International.
We ask sponsors to make a thoughtful and prayerful commitment to these children ~ to come with the vision to see them through their high school years. For the young mums, to see them through 1-3 years of trade or vocational school.
- For a mum and child (under 3) it is $75/month.
- For a preschool/school age child it is $40/month
- For a youth in boarding the cost may be $50/month
- For a volunteer or mum (with no child) the cost is $50/month
