What is the Freedom Fund?

The Freedom Fund is Let’s Do Something Now’s sponsorship program.  As a ministry, we rely on the local government to identify women who are or have been in prostitution, and whose children are in desperate need of sponsorship. Once this information is received, our purpose is to match the child with a person(s) who understands the importance of the opportunity for an education. We hope that by using this method, there will soon be a positive difference in the poverty cycle that plagues Rwanda.

What Does Sponsorship Include?

When you sponsor a child you are paying for one year of education for him/her, including all school fees, materials, school uniforms, a healthy lunch on school days and health insurance for the entire family. Most Hagari kids live in such extreme poverty that they only eat one meal a day; therefore we have recently added a feeding program which provides a much needed lunch for the children. We encourage sponsors to commit to long-term sponsorship of their child and to establish a personal relationship with him/her. We facilitate that by emailing you updates about your child several times a year and passing on letters, emails, pictures and packages that you send if you would like. A child who is sponsored also receives at least 3 hours of tutoring/mentoring each week. In addition, Hagari hosts a child’s Bible study once a week and does Bible Day Camps during the school holidays.When a child is sponsored the ministry takes an interest not only in the sponsored child, but the entire family. The mother or caregiver is welcome to attend our bible study and we visit them regularly to encourage, pray, mentor, and assess the needs of the family.

What Does Sponsorship Cost?

650 USD per year. This can be paid monthly, or in full. Let’s Do Something Now is a registered Non-profit organization therefore your sponsorship or donations are tax deductible.
