Candidate Class Scholarship Scheme

The Candidate Class Scholarship scheme provides financial support to students in critical candidate classes by covering tuition fees, examination registration fees, and other school-related expenses. This assistance helps students overcome financial barriers that might prevent them from completing their education and taking their exams.

Who is Eligible?
The scholarship is designed for students in:
– Primary Seven (P7)

What Does the Scholarship Cover?
The scholarship covers a range of expenses, including:

– UNEB (Uganda National Examination Board) examination registration fees
– Mock exam fees
– Tuition fees
– Field work expenses for secondary school students

Why is This Important?
Many families struggle to meet the financial demands of education, especially during the critical candidate class periods. Without support, students face the risk of dropping out of school due to these overwhelming expenses. The scholarship aims to alleviate this burden, ensuring students have the resources they need to stay in school and succeed academically.

Timely Support
Recognizing the importance of deadlines for exams and other activities, the scheme ensures that assistance is provided promptly. This timely support helps students meet critical deadlines and fully participate in their candidate classes.

Impact on Academic Performance
By reducing the financial pressure on students, the Candidate Class Scholarship helps them focus on their studies. This leads to better preparation for exams and improved academic performance, as students can concentrate on learning without the distraction of financial worries.

Overall, the Candidate Class Scholarship scheme provides crucial support, enabling students to complete their education and achieve their academic goals.

Child Sponsorship

(Primary level - 7 years)

HOCAM’S Child sponsorship programs provides holistic support, including education, school supplies, meals, healthcare, emotional and spiritual development, while allowing children to remain with their families or relatives.

Many children in Kalonga face financial barriers to accessing education, even if they have loving guardians such as parents, grandparents, aunts, or uncles. By sponsoring a child’s education through our child sponsorship program, you can help bridge this gap and provide them with the opportunity to receive a primary education.

The support provided through the sponsorship program, include school supplies, lunches at school, healthcare, and emotional and spiritual development, which contribute to a child’s overall well-being and development. We also ensure that children have the necessary resources to attend school regularly, participate in classroom activities, and thrive academically.

With a modest contribution of $70 per year, you can make a significant difference in a child’s life, providing them with opportunities for a brighter future.

High School Sponsorship

(Secondary level - 6 years)

For $210 per year, you can sponsor a student at the secondary level (O-Level which lasts for 4 years) in a day school, providing them with tuition fees, school supplies, and lunches at school. 

For $550 per year, you can sponsor a student at the secondary level (O-Level) in a boarding school. In addition to tuition fees, this sponsorship option also covers accommodation, meals, school uniforms, school supplies, and medical care. Boarding schools can provide a supportive environment for students, offering them access to education and essential resources throughout the day.

For students at the advanced level (A-Level), which typically lasts for 2 years, you can sponsor them for $550 per year for day scholars or $1000 per year for the boarding section. This sponsorship covers tuition fees, accommodation, school uniforms, school supplies, field work fees, medical care, and daily meals. A-Level education is a critical stage for students, as it prepares them for higher education and career opportunities.

Special Needs Sponsorship

Marginalized by society, children with special needs in Africa are usually kept at home. They are unable to attend special education due to lack of funds. For $100 a month or $1200 a year, you can give a child with special needs the opportunity to receive an education just like any other child. Your support will provide education, accommodation, three meals a day, and all basic needs to cater for the child’s schooling.

Resources For Sponsors

On average, you will receive between 3 to 4 letters from your child every year. As you read their letters, see them grow, and watch them succeed, you will realize how great your impact can be.

You can turn your sponsorship of a child into a relationship.

The sections below give you details of ways you can keep in touch with your sponsored child.

We highly recommend you to write to your sponsored child as a way to build a relationship between the two of you. Letters are very special to the children as they are handwritten and something they can save for years.

Sending by Mail: All letters can be mailed to our office in Uganda.

We do realize that taking on sponsorship of a child for years is a big commitment, and your child will greatly appreciate what you are doing for them through sponsorship. Making a trip to Uganda can be a big commitment as well. While it’s not required for you to visit your child we do encourage it, if such a trip is possible for you. It’s a wonderful way to see firsthand what your child talks about in their letters and it puts faces to names.

We do, however, discourage your child from visiting you. Your child likely lives without running water and electricity and a trip to the U.S., UK, Europe, or Australia could be very overwhelming for them and difficult to process at a young age. However, once they’ve graduated and if they are traveling on their own, we will do everything to connect you together during their trips.

You may send gifts at least twice a year: on their birthday and at Christmas.

You may also send a monetary gift for your child’s family in order for them to buy something they may need.

Large packages can be expensive to ship.

Items that fit in flat envelopes are ideal.

Please allow 4-8 weeks for packages to arrive.

How long does my sponsorship last?

We wish to see children in the program complete their education through university or vocational training. If you start sponsoring a child in Primary 1 and you stay with your child all the way through, your sponsorship will be 13 years and 3 further years of university. If you’re unable to commit for that long, try to select an older child, such as a child beginning secondary school. In that case, your sponsorship will last 6 years for secondary school and a further 3 for university. We ask you commit a minimum of two years to sponsoring your child.

What happens to my child if I’m unable to continue my sponsorship?

If you are for any reason unable to continue sponsoring your child, please contact us. We will begin to look for another sponsor for your child and ensure they are able to stay in the program and stay in school.

What happens when my child graduates or leaves the program?

When your child graduates secondary school you’ll receive a final letter and progress report from them and be offered the chance to sponsor them through university, with details about that program. Ultimately, the child’s parent or guardian has full authority over them and if they relocate to an area where we do not operate, we are unable to keep them in the program. If this were to happen we would connect you to another child of the same sex and age, according to your wishes.
