Youth Sponsorship Programme
Northern Uganda suffered for decades under the atrocities of The Lords
Resistant Army (LRA) rebels that killed millions of people, abducted millions
of children and many children left orphans. The rebel activities led to the
break-down of social and cultural structures in the region resulting to; poor
education, extreme poverty, high HIV/AIDs, high rate of school drop outs due
to poverty and early marriages among school going children. There are more than
3.2 million orphans and abandoned children who regularly go hungry and sleep on
the streets in Uganda. With no government resources to meet their needs, these
children are left helpless and susceptible to preventable disease, violence,
crime, and worse. They lack all basic life necessities including an education.
Through sponsorship, you can meet their basic needs and provide them with hope
for a better future.
ACSET Uganda has designed Child Sponsorship Programme (CSP) to support vulnerable
children and youth in their education by facilitating their school needs and personal
The CSP programme ensures children completes their education (formal, Technical and
Vocational Skill Training) to gain meaningful employment or self-employment to enable
self-sustainability. The CSP provides access to inclusive and quality education to
vulnerable children and youth in Uganda.
