In Uganda, according to UNICEF, only one of seven children is enrolled and attends secondary school.
Most kids eighth grade and up work hard on their own to earn the fees to attend a school with meager resources. And yet it has been proven through studies that secondary school enrollment alone can cut the AIDS rate by one-third.
Daniel- before & after sponsorship
This is a foreign concept to most children from Serere, but Village2Village offers the unique opportunity for children to have fun, laugh, and simply be kids.
Many children in the Village2Village Project have parents or guardians who are living with HIV or AIDS. Sponsors in our Hope Ministry (Hope In our Village) provide medical and physical care, advocacy and counseling for these individuals.
Children who are HIV+ also have special needs and expenses. For $60 per month, sponsors can provide all of the educational, medical, emotional and spiritual care that other sponsored children receive. In addition, HIV+ children will receive the medical care and extra nutrition necessary to ensure a healthy and prolonged life.

They have caretakers who continually give them love and provide them with proper nutrition and physical therapy.
