The children of Nga need your help

  • More than 75% of the population is illiterate in the official language, limiting education and growth opportunities
  • 29% of primary school students drop out of school in grade 1 due to language barriers
  • Schools are in poor condition and lack teaching supplies, trained teachers and sanitation facilities
  • Unsafe drinking water is pumped from a nearby river, exposing children to preventable illnesses
  • Child marriage is common and puts girls at risk of illiteracy, violence and abuse

Still have questions? Let us help!

  • How is sponsoring a community different from sponsoring a child?

  • Will I be receiving a picture of one child?

  • Does my sponsorship benefit all the children in the community, or only some?

  • If I sponsor a community, how long a commitment am I expected to make?

  • What kind of correspondence will I be getting from the community?

  • Why do you need my email address?

  • Can I visit the community?
