About this project

In 2019, HOCAM had a total of 54 Primary 7 candidates. Out of these, 8 students passed in Division 1, 32 Division 2 and 14 Division 3. Also 12 were Senior 4 candidates. Out of which 3 students passed in Division I, 7 students Division II, and 2 students in Division 4.

we believe child sponsorship has the power to drive change that ripples throughout children's lives, their families and entire community of Kalonga.
There 're over 17,800 residents in kalonga, At least every family there has 1 or more children that need support for their education.

However, among the so many barriers that deny these children power to transform this community is; Poverty. There are a number of children of school-going age that resort to roaming around the village simply because their parents cannot afford to pay their school fees.
Besides poverty, some children and their parents are ignorant about education and its benefits. Additionally, some children are discouraged from even starting school by their fellows who never completed.

Sarah, “aunt sends me men every day for sex, if I refuse aunt says I will not be able to go to school because she has no money and that she will chase me from home. Men have been using me for sex and they pay aunt money.
how much? Like $1 or less! but I cannot take it on any more”.

Sharon; “My father died from a car accident, he was crossing the road and a car hit him. He left us in a rental room, my mother has not yet gotten a permanent job, she works in people’s fields to earn day today food and she cannot afford school fees for the 3 of us”.

Many children in “Kalonga” go through different difficulties just like Sarah and Sharon.

Majority of the P.7 and all senior 4 candidates are uncertain of their continuity and yet they excelled in their final examinations. Their parents cannot afford to take them to the next level because of poverty.
These children are looking for more support to take them to the next level so that they can achieve their great dreams.

We thank all those partnering with us in different ways; skills, time and finances. With your partnership and support, we are touching and reaching out to these children, changing their lives and making an impact on the community.

If we can support these children by giving them an opportunity to access quality education, they will be a great contribution to the present and future of Kalonga Village as we turn it into a HOPE CITY.
