Corporate Sponsorship

Support A Chance for Children with your company

Financial sponsorship plays an integral part in sustaining our projects, but we very much appreciate certain donations in kind as well. Fostering the local economy in Uganda by buying and operating locally as much as possible is an important basic principle of our organisation, but some items simply cannot be purchased there, such as laptops or cameras.

Laptops / Notebooks

Our sponsored children need to learn to use a computer effectively, including MS office applications. This is vital to their future professional progress and to our provision of sustainable development aid.
Currently, we have a few old typewriters, which are a fun way to teach using a keyboard. We have supplied some laptops from Austria, but not enough to provide adequate computer training. 
We are in search of old but functional laptops. They need to have more than an hour's battery capacity as power supply in Uganda is unreliable. All data will be deleted and the computer will be rebooted, or you can choose to do this yourself. We will then install free office applications and programmes for the children.

Digital cameras

We strive to keep our supporters informed about our work in Uganda. As "a picture is worth a thousand words", we would love all our staff in Uganda to have a digital camera to keep us in touch.
Any unwanted, working digital cameras would be gratefully received, providing they come with charger, battery and, if possible, a memory card.

Please contact us via email if you have donations in kind!
