HHU provides sponsorships that cover school expenses (fees, books, uniform and shoes), medical expenses and food for children, plus an income-generating project for the child’s family.
The Canadian operations of the charity are staffed entirely by volunteers, to ensure that at least 90% of funds received go directly towards sponsorship.

Sponsor A Child!
- School expenses for one child. This includes school fees, a uniform and shoes, and school supplies.
- Medical expenses for one child. Treatment for malaria, snake bite, HIV, malnutrition or any of the many illnesses that affect children in Uganda. A local doctor is identified that the child can go to for treatment when needed.
- Food for the child in times of price inflation. Bags of corn flour and beans supplement the child`s nutrition.
- An income generating project for the family. Families receive a pair of livestock to breed.
