Requested by

Child Support Uganda (CSU)

Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

Hope for Kids Christmas Gift Program is CSU’s annual end of year community Christmas Gift Party celebrations for all orphans and widows in CSU’s childcare and community support program in Uganda, aimed at providing tangible decent Christmas gifts and in-kind items to orphaned children, youth and widows.

What is your project and how will it help?

Every year, Child Support Uganda (CSU) organizes Hope for Kids Christmas Gift Party Celebration for orphans and disadvantaged children in communities where we work. During this community event, children receive tangible Christmas gifts and presents donated by friends and well-wishers. The objective of the program is to enable less privileged children, youth and widows, share in the joy and blessing of Christmas by giving them tangible Christmas gifts of shoes, clothing, scholastic materials, bedding and other in-kind presents.
To realize this goal, Child Support Uganda requests for partnerships and support from individuals, families, companies, organizations, churches and well-wishers from all over the world to donated in-kind Christmas gifts goods and children’s gift items.
