By sponsoring a child's education, SKCF seeks to "Help Ugandan Families Help Themselves" in their fight against illiteracy and poverty and to ensure a decent home environment for healthy living.
To mobilize all people of good will to join SKCF efforts to fight for better education, healthy families and homes, community literacy and providing basic skills that would empower women to be self-reliant.
We put much emphasis on the education of children and giving women the skills they need to live a more dignified life.
The Foundation runs a goat and pig farm as a way raising funds for the Foundation locally. We also produce bananas, corn and beans for sale in case of good yield.
The Foundation regularly covers all medical bills for sponsored children, especially due to malaria. We are grateful to the Rev. Sisters who run hospital for being good to us and patient with us when we are low on funds.
The Foundation has been able to keep 245 students in school by proving tuition and school materials and medicare:
152 students in Elementary school,
79 students in High School
9 students in college
5 in the seminary
Our computer and library building was completed and a deep well (borehole) for the school was drilled with additional help from other partners, especially the Knights of Columbus.
Once again, on behalf of all the sponsored children and their families, the beneficiaries of your generosity, I want to say: THANK YOU and may God bless each one of you abundantly. I am confident that with your continued support, SKCF will be able to meet all its objectives for the betterment of our people.

Dear brothers and sister, supporters of St. Kizito Children’s Foundation:
Greetings from Uganda, particularly from the children and their families. I hope and pray the Good Lord is keeping you and all your loved safe from this horrible pandemic. Here in Uganda we doing quite fine. We pray for you everyday.
I write to thank all of you for your continued financial, moral and spiritual support to the Foundation. May the Almighty God continue to bless the work of your hands.
As you all know normal life has somehow come to a stand still due COVID-19. Here in Uganda much as there is not much threat from the , social activities are pretty much still restricted. There is too much politics into the whole issue.
Our children are still home. Schools are still under lockdown. Mostly girls have been greatly affected as we receive massive reports of young girls getting pregnant. Boys too had to engage in small trades here and there in order to make ends meet. There is a general fear that many children may not be able to go back to school because of the confusion and disruption that COVID-19 has caused in their lives and families.
I intend to prepare a Christmas Get-together for all the children sponsored by the foundation and other children, to offer some counseling to help address this situation. We shall need your help to do this as we anticipate over 500 children. We shall need to provide lunch for them and also give facilitation to counselors who will be addressing the different age groups.
The good news is that the government has allowed finalists to resume school but also under very stringent conditions, which have made their stay at school rather expensive. Thank God, because of your support all our finalists, at all levels: Elementary, High School, College and University have been able to resume school.
On the other hand, I have spent most of the COVID-19 lockdown time working on the gardens and construction on the Nazareth Community Centre. I have shared some pictures from the activities for your information.
Thank you again our dear donors and benefactors. All this has been possible because of your love. May God bless all of you. Fr. Kizito Kirenga
