Charles, our child sponsorship coordinator, shares the other urgent need to see another child sponsored! Would you consider sponsoring this little girl? I cannot tell you ENOUGH how much your sponsorship impacts the children!!!
Charles shares, "Friends! I am also happy to share with you another story of this child called Devine Catherine Muwanguzi and her parent too.
Divine is in Middle Class at Gateway Nursery and primary school and she is 5 years old.
The father of this child is called Mr. Ronald Kawunye, and he lives in Bwerenga which is a central village. Ronald's job has a low income, because he's selling charcoal to earn a living in order to take care of his family. so he told me that, his job cannot sustain the whole family as well as paying school fees for his child. This father of Devine was brought by Pastor Ernest to me, Therefore he asked me if there is any other opportunity for his child to be sponsored. He highly welcomes the opportunity to his child sponsored."
Dear friends, I cannot express to you the IMPACT you are making through sponsoring children at Gateway! Our Child Sponsorship Coordinator, Charles, sent me the following update!!
Charles shares, "Hello Team, I hope everyone is doing very well. I am so happy to share a story with you about this child and her parent. This child's name is Shinah Ayebare. She was once a sponsored child here before, but time came and she disappeared from school for a long time, almost 4 weeks, and then it caused the administration of the school to be concerned as they thought that this child would not come back to school again. Last month, when I audited all the kids see their presence at school with the help of the administration, Shinah was the one the students who was removed from the program.
But yesterday, when I made a trip to school, her parent brought her to school seeking again for sponsorship.
Her mother goes by the name of MISS SAVIOR AIMBISA who lives in Bwerenga central village, and she is a single woman and her husband abandoned the family. Her job in the community is going around and washing the clothes for people, from different homes (Laundry) but she said this job earns very low income for her, and she could not be able to pay school fees for her child. Therefore, she is asking if there is any other opportunity for her child to be sponsored again, that will be great because she told me that she needs help!"
Your impact over the past 9 years!
Ava Weeks is a missionary to Uganda and is a dear friend of mine! She also is like family to the people of Gateway Nursery and Primary School and attends the Gateway Bible Church that is connected to the school. She has shared a powerful message with you all regarding your impact on the school!
Ava shares, "Dear Friends of His Love and SonShine,
Thank you so much for all you do to make life better for the children in Bwerenga, Uganda! Your support of the children at Gateway Nursery and Primary School is making a huge impact on the community as well as on the lives of the children.
Without your support, many of these children would be aimlessly roaming the roads of the village looking for food and for something to occupy their time. Because of you, they are in school getting an education, eating nutritious food, and learning the Word of God.
Child brides continue to be a big problem in Uganda. Girls who are not in school are often sold as child brides (girls as young as 13). When a girl is supported to get an education, her future is much more promising. You are giving these girls hope.
Gateway Nursery and Primary School is blessed with gifted, dedicated teachers who are pouring into the lives of the children they teach. Thank you for supporting them through your prayers and your financial gifts. May God richly bless your faithfulness.

When Rachel Guy was in elementary school, she was fascinated by children in African countries; her heart was particularly drawn to children who had been orphaned. At the age of twelve, the country of Uganda became the focus of Rachel’s interest and concern when a close family friend, Nancy Wellham, invited her to join her on a mission’s trip there. It was on this trip that Rachel visited Gateway Nursery and Primary school and fell in love with the people there. Four years ago, Rachel was shocked when she was invited to start a ministry for the school. With humility and gratitude, she said, “Yes” to this unlikely adventure with God.
