Ronald was abandoned by his parents when he was younger so his grandmother had to step in to look out for him. Unable to care for him alone, Ronald has been part of our program since 2015 and he will be attending a university in 2020. He's come so far in the last four years and needs a family to step in so he can continue his education.
Edwin is only 14 and knows that he wants to own his own business so he can take care of his family. At this young and fragile age, he has had to go tend to other's gardens, fetch water, or has had to make bricks in order to have food.
Ronald and Edwin are each in need of a co-sponsor so that E3 Africa is able to fully fund their tuition and care needs. If you or someone you know is able to help cover the $45/month commitment, please call or email our office. We have over 100 children on our critical care list waiting for sponsors, so if you are able to sponsor a child for $70/month, another child will receive the life-changing gift of education thanks to your sponsorship!
Wait! You're telling me that you missed this awesome night out?! There'll be more in the near future so make sure you follow us on Facebook and check our website for updates!
It takes many hearts and even more hands to create something special for our sponsored students! A special thanks to Kyrie Martin and Silicon Valley Bank for arranging and supporting the night out at the Wandering Tortoise in Phoenix, AZ for some crafting and specially crafted drinks!

E3 Africa Student Highlight
Saviour Ofusiku has been part of our program since 2008. He is in his final year at Uganda Civil Engineering University and will graduate with his Civil Engineering degree in 2020. During university breaks, he interns with a local company to gain hands-on experience to put him further ahead of others. He shares with his sponsors, "...know that all of the family will be in my prayers. I am grateful for your contributions and have committed my work to the hands of God." Saviour is just one of the 55 college-level students E3 Africa is able to help because of the loving support given. Thank you for being the change this world needs.
