Children are often the hardest hit by natural disasters and situations of extreme poverty, and will benefit greatly from simple supplies, medical attention or the care of a volunteer. Please help AMURT in its mission to help equip children all over the world with the things they need to thrive and succeed.
Your donation will go into a fund designated for improving the lives of the neediest children within AMURT’s networks. Thanks to hundreds of dedicated volunteers, extremely low administrative costs ensure that your contribution will be used to its fullest extent.
Sponsor a Child in Haiti
AMURT was present in Haiti prior to the 2010 earthquake disaster, so when thousands of children were orphaned or forced from their homes, our team acted quickly to establish ten youth centers to help them adjust to life in a dangerous and fragile country. Since schools have reopened, the Child Friendly Spaces program has transitioned to an after-school program and place for kids to have fun and receive academic tutoring as well as training in music, dance, art, and theater.
Sponsor a Child in Kenya
With an estimated 1.6 million Kenyan children partially or fully orphaned, much help is needed to keep the youngest generation healthy, motivated and on a path to success. As part of a broader HIV/AIDS program, AMURT has rallied community support for 3,000 children in three provinces, establishing a network of volunteers who conduct monthly visits, twenty child’s rights clubs, and a monthly “fun day” that includes medical checkups and a meal as well as activities and games. Your sponsorship in Kenya will go towards necessities like school uniforms, healthcare, and food for the neediest kids in AMURT’s program for orphans and vulnerable children.
Sponsor a Child in Uganda
In 1988 AMURT began a small school for twenty children in Uganda’s Mukona District. By 1991 construction finished on a building to accommodate the children residing in the seven surrounding villages within ten miles. Conforming to government standards with courses in Luganda, English, Math, Science, Geography and Agriculture, the school now educates and cares for about 333 kids ranging from nursery to Primary 7. It was recently ranked second out of thirty-eight schools in the area. Your donation to AMURT’s school in Uganda will sponsor the neediest students with necessities like school supplies and medical attention.
