There are various ways you can support the Luwero Community Projects.
Firstly, prayer is the most important way everyone can help. Prayer fuel is available from our bi-monthly Newsletter and this site.
Become a Luwero Ambassador
Be an ambassador by telling others about the project at Luwero. Make it a feature in your family, school class, youth or activity group, church or organisation.
A good education is a stepping stone to employment and self-sufficiency. President Museveni, the Ugandan head of state, aspires to promote free primary education for all.
Whilst a laudable objective Uganda has few government schools and those that exist are heavily oversubscribed. Often therefore the only means by which a good education can be secured is by attending a private school. Private schools receive no government funding.
In 2007 a child sponsorship scheme was introduced enabling children, who were orphaned or whose parents were unable to pay, to benefit from an education at the school. Under this scheme individuals or groups may sponsor a child’s education. At present approximately 110 children are sponsored by supporters of the project. The current cost of sponsorship is £20 per month, payable by standing order. Gift Aid can be recovered on your donation if you are a UK tax payer.
As well as sponsoring children there is opportunity to sponsor a nurse or teacher.
If you would like to sponsor a child, please download and print this document, sign and return by post. Thank you.

Luwero Community Projects is a faith-based work. It is therefore not primarily a fund-raising organisation. Whilst we make our needs known it is left to individuals and groups to choose whether to support us or not. The work of LCP is however made possible through the kind donations of our supporters worldwide.
If you have been involved in any fund raising projects for LCP, please let us know details and send photos, we would be happy to publish them here and let others know what you have been doing.
