Faith Children's Home Expenses

First, let us say thank you to all of our partners and suporters. Because of your help, we have seen that being an orphan does not mean that you cannot have a future or a destiny. As you support these precious kids, they are receiving a future, a hope and a destiny. Thank you for joining us and becoming a partner with God in fulfilling James 1:27- For the best religion is to care Orphans and widows in their distress.

Our expenses are divided into two major areas. School Fees and Tuition expenses, and running the Orphanage.

School Fees and Tuition

Every year when school starts, we have to buy dozens of books for each every one of our 60 kids. We buy shoes, school uniforms, pens and pencils, reams of paper for each kid as a school requirement, and many other Basics. You can imagine all of these kids waking up every morning at Faith Children's Home and every morning knocking at Hudson and Mercy door asking for various needs or School supplies! 

Our total annual Budget for School Fees or Tuition is USD $8413 (This is split and paid in three installments). We support a total of 60 Kids, 50 living in Faith children Home and 10 living with foster families, church members in the community. Briefly here is the Summary of Kids, and classes:

Primary/Elementary School
36 kids: tuition per semester   =2,340,000 UG

High School/Secondary
22 kids: tuition per semester   =3,600,000 UG

2 kids: tuition per semster       =350,000 UG

Total per term
6,240,000 UG = $2804 US per semester, and there are three semester terms in a year.

Total per Year

18,720,000 UG, an equivalent of $8413 USD

The reality is that your ability to help a child or an orphan/abandoned child creates a future, a destiny and a difference between life and death. By your partnership with Faith Children Home, you are causing a future, hope and a destiny in the lives of the orphans and vulnerable children. All of the children at Faith Children Home are total orphans or "at risk" children. They have absolutely no one at all and need your help. 

Please consider partnering up with Faith Children Home both in prayers and financially.
