How much does child sponsorship cost? Sponsorship costs a minimum of £16 a month – that’s around 52p a day. Of this, 91% of funds are spent directly in Uganda. The remaining 9% is spent on UK costs such as postage, printing, IT and office supplies. Your Gift Aid is used to help with running costs. We are fortunate to have a volunteer in the UK office running the programme so we can maximise the amount which goes directly to Uganda. We raise funds separately for clean water and a mentoring programme.
