Sponsorship Program

Bush Fire Project has established a sponsorship program as a way to provide Uganda Family Resource Link consistent financial support with which to help cover expenses related to caring for these children. While this amount is not sufficient to provide completely for all areas of each child’s care, such as food, clothing, medical care, educational fees/supplies, etc., it does provide a consistent source of income that UFRL can rely on to help meet these important needs. The money will be given directly to UFRL for the care of the children.

Questions and Answers

Can I write to my child?

Yes. You are encouraged to send letters and a photo of yourself/family to your child. This will help you establish a relationship with your child and allow you to bless them with your prayers and encouragement. He or she will be praying for you too. Please send correspondence to your child through Bush Fire Project at the address below. All letters are forwarded in bulk at the end of each month. It can take a few weeks for letters to arrive so please plan accordingly if you are sending a birthday or holiday card.

Letter writing guidelines:

What to include in your letters:

  • First of all, please be sure to include your child’s full name with all correspondence.
  • You may wish to tell about your family, what you do for a living, your hobbies or interests, favorite Bible verses, special stories, etc. Please be sure to give words of encouragement to your child, including the fact that you are praying for him or her. Tell them how much Jesus loves them.
  • Some things you may ask your child about include how they are doing in school, their family at Bush Fire, and things they like to do.
  • You may also send a photo of you or your family and pictures your children have drawn for them.

What NOT to include:

  • Please do not include your address, phone number or e-mail address in your letters.
  • Please do not ask troubling questions about the child’s past.

Can I send gifts?

No. Because these children live together as a family, we do not allow the sending of individual gifts.  It would cause disappointment and hurt for those children who do not receive anything.  For this reason, we also ask that you do not include small trinkets in the letters you send.  We do wish to emphasize the importance of exchanging letters with these children as opposed to the giving of gifts.  The gift of your friendship and your prayers is of great value and will tremendously bless your sponsored child.

What if I can no longer sponsor my child?

If you are no longer able to make the monthly sponsorship payments, we simply ask that you contact us as soon as possible so that we can find another sponsor for your child.
