About The Program
Over 1,300 children in Uganda, Zambia, and Ethiopia are currently enrolled in the Orphan Sponsorship Program. Through indigenous local church partnerships and the generosity of Covenant Mercies sponsors, these children receive an education, living supplies, nutrition, vocational counseling, healthcare, Christian teaching, mentorship, and more.
Breaking the Cycle of Poverty
Restoring Children to Everything
God Created Them to Be
Education is at the core of the Orphan Sponsorship Program and essential in order to break the cycle of poverty. Our goal is that every sponsored child would be able to learn in classrooms with well-trained instructors, small teacher/student ratios, and access to fundamental supplies.
Personal Care- We collaborate with guardians and teachers to develop tailored learning plans for each child, based on the child’s gifts and interests. Caseworkers monitor each child’s progress and offer supplementary tutoring opportunities as needed.
Quality Schools- In developing countries, local school environments are not always conducive to learning, due to over-crowding or limited resources. When appropriate educational environments are not available, we pursue opportunities to build and develop schools.
Health & Wellness
In the developing world, extreme poverty can result in malnutrition and high vulnerability to common diseases, such as malaria. Additionally, the HIV/AIDS pandemic in Sub-Saharan Africa has affected many children and their guardians.
