As a child sponsor you follow your sponsored child on her or his journey through childhood.

2. A description of Blessed Christian Education Center and the country where the child you sponsor lives.
3. Updates about the progress of the child and information about Blessed Christian Education Center where the child lives twice a year.
4. Our bi-annual BCEC- Lasting Impressions’ magazine with stories about our work in Uganda.

Frequently asked questions

A child or Education sponsorship is a recurring financial donation made by an individual, organisation or company, in which the funds are set aside for the specific purpose of supporting the children in Blessed Christian Education Center on a long-term basis.

As a child sponsor you follow your sponsored child on her or his journey through childhood and into an independent life. As an Educational sponsor you will follow all the child’s study and and his/her everyday life at school including feeding, scholastic materials and uniforms

After registering for a sponsorship you will receive a welcome package containing a description and a picture of the sponsored child or village. In addition you will receive updates from our colleagues in the country where you are sponsoring twice a year.

We will also send you our bi-annual online magazine, “BCEC Impressions,” with stories about our work around the world.

Although you cannot choose a specific child, you are welcome to inform us about any wishes concerning age and gender and we will do our best to fulfill your requests.

You are welcome to send letters to your sponsored child. Personal letters from sponsors to their sponsored children are translated in the national office and forwarded to the child. Some children wish to answer the sponsor and they then receive all the help they need to write a letter. Sponsored children are, however, put under no obligation to reply, and the responsibility of replying to letters is mainly taken on by the co-workers in the national office.

It is possible to visit the School. However, the privacy of all the children in our care and their right to a loving and stable upbringing will always remain our priority.
To ensure the visit is a success, the national office must be informed of the visit at least four weeks in advance. Only then can a co-worker be available to show the sponsor around BCE-Center and to translate, if necessary. You can receive information about the exact address and position of BCE-Center from the national office. To make sure that the visit is a good experience for all parties you will be required to read through and sign our Guide for Visitors – this will be sent to you prior to your visit.

Please get in touch with BCE-Center online if you would like more information about arranging a visit to BCE-Center . If you have signed up for a sponsorship at the International Liaison Office, please send your request to: donations@blessedchristianeducationcenter.org

Taking on a sponsorship is a voluntary commitment and not a binding contract. Our aim is to build lasting relationships with our sponsors and guarantee financial support for the children in our programmes as well as the supporting facilities. The children in our care leave the sponsorship programme when they move from the village or at the latest when they turn 25 years old.

Your sponsorship contribution goes towards covering the living costs of the children in BCE-Center. Your support helps us meet their daily needs, and guarantees that they receive quality medical care and education.
Because quality schools and medical centers are not available in the surrounding community, we have chosen to build them. As such, BCE-Center is setting up supporting facilities such as social center, Computer laboratory, Chapel, Farm House and a state of the art medical center among others. Children living with their biological families in the surrounding communities may then also benefit from these services.

In addition, your contributions may go to helping support BCE-Center family strengthening programme yet to come in the near future. This program helps struggling families in the community, as a means to prevent family breakdown and child abandonment.

We would like to inform our sponsors and donors that 20% of your donation or sponsorship contribution goes towards administrative costs.

You are a key stakeholder in ensuring that sensitive information about your sponsored child is not shared with third parties outside your immediate family or circle of friends. We kindly ask you not to publish pictures or information about your sponsored child or family on Facebook or any other social media.

A child’s right to privacy and the need to observe data protection laws are paramount. This means that sensitive information about a child’s background will never be included on our website or print materials without changing the child’s name. It is also essential to protect the dignity of sponsored children, by not putting their lives on show to the public.

We are happy to assist you with any questions you may have.
