Biojemmss Christmas Appeal 2023

1st Nov 2023

Christmas Appeal

We have a very special appeal this Christmas. 

Every child in Uganda has to pay for their education through a system of school fees. Many children simply cannot afford to go to school.

Instead they end up in forms of exploitation and child labour, often experiencing abuse without any hope for a way out and a brighter future. 

Biojemmss wants that to change, and as part of our community work we rescue children from abuse and support children short-term with either full or partial scholarships to be able to get into school. 

We then support their caregivers in a variety of ways to ensure they are able to keep their children safe and in school for the long-term.

In 2024, Biojemmss has FORTY NINE children needing support with their school fees. These children are the most vulnerable primary aged children in our local community, and include the two child headed families recently referred to us above. This does not include children in our residential care, or those who are receiving long-term community support from Biojemmss, as we continue to fully fund this from regular giving.

Many of these children are in the most heart-breaking circumstances and are desperate for a way out and a chance at a better future.

We are asking you to invest in one of these children for 2024. 

For £4.20 you can enable us to send one of these children to school for a month in 2024

For £50 you can enable us to send one of these children to school for the whole of 2024
