Bushikori Christian Centre - Australian Support Committee -

In the eyes of the student you sponsor, you play an important part in their life, your monthly support enables your sponsor student to attend school, maintains good health and helps them to have a future and a hope, your participation through letters and cards can inspire and encourage them.

It's amazing how messages of hope can boost student's self-esteem and motivate them to realise their potential. Although some are orphans, sponsors do not adopt children; our goal is to not only rescue children from vulnerable and devastating situations but also help rebuild the nation of Uganda by raising up strong, educated and confident young men and women.

Gifts

Sending large parcels by post is not cheap so we suggest when possible donating money through the committee to buy the same gift in Uganda.

NOTE: BCC Uganda need to pay duty on parcels received from Australia, which is an added burden for them.  

If you do choose to send a personal package to your child the following suggestions may be helpful...

Children's Bibles, writing books, pens and pencils will always be well received. Please consider the environment with your packaging as there is no garbage collection and rubbish needs to be burnt. Sending gifts in reusable bags are a great
idea!

As a rule boys are sports mad and love soccer
but be conscious that if sending an inflatable
ball they will also require a needle and pump.
Sheets of stickers fit in an envelope and are great fun for younger kids.

Putting a current photo of you or your family in any letters or parcels is highly recommended.

Please do not post gifts to our Australian PO Box

Welfare

Additional welfare needs can be met by sponsors when desired. Purchasing a goat, cow or chickens to supplement subsistence farming or purchasing a bike to make traveling long distances to school easier are options desired by some sponsors.

Each student is different and if you would like to discuss what more you might be able to do for your student please contact us for specific information.

Alternatively you can organise a welfare gift to be purchased for your student. Please contact us first so that we can ask the staff in Uganda what the particular needs of your student are and we will get back to you with the cost. Welfare items are usually foam mattresses, sheets, blankets, mosquito nets, clothes, shoes or food parcels.

We ask that sponsors also consider donating a small amount into the Gift & Welfare Pool which provides welfare to other needy students.

Please note child sponsorship and all donations are tax deductable
