Siankaba Sponsor a child

Sponsoring a child is a fantastic way to support the children at the Siankaba Community Trust School. The school receives no assistance from the local government and is entirely funded by The U Foundation. The programme costs just £20 per child per month and helps to provide:

It is important to note that the programme contributes to the care of all of the children at the school, not just those who have sponsors. 

Here are a few of the children who will benefit from sponsorship and, whilst you may not be able to select a particular child to sponsor, we would ensure that you are kept informed of who they are and the progress that they make.
