"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in. I needed clothes and you clothed me."

Gift a Dream 🎒👩🏾‍🎓📚

"The best way to fight poverty is to empower people through quality education” — John Legend

When RSF board member Merika Andrade spent time with the Batwa kids a few years ago, she noticed they didn't have future dreams. When she’d ask what they wanted to be when they grew up, or what they wanted to do, most did not have any ideas. 


We've been working hard to change that. This year our fundraising goal is to get Every Child Sponsored so we can ensure they get the dreams they deserve. 


With inflation costs, we need two sponsors per child, but several of our kids have NO sponsor. We also have 4 in secondary school next school year, which costs triple that of primary school. And we’ve made the tough call that if a child does not have a sponsor, we can’t continue to put them in school unless we have dedicated funds to cover that, which means at least one sponsor.

A minority Indigenous tribe, the Batwa comprise less than 1% of Uganda’s population. Most live in extreme poverty and experience daily hunger. Most drop out of school in primary grades. Few go on to secondary schools. Only a handful have ever attended university, and only 4 have received a 4-year college degree. They face enormous odds. We love these children as our own, have been with them and their families for a decade, and are committed to seeing them succeed. Won't you join us? 

Child sponsors donate $45/mo or an annual $500 donation; you get to write children and receive photos, drawings, report cards, and letters from them.


Set up a recurring donation at our Donate page, which will take you through to Paypal. You can also or mail a check to RSF, PO Box 876, Frisco, TX 75034. RSF is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. 

Blessings and love ❤️

We work with indigenous Batwa (sometimes called "pygmies") just outside of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, which until 1991 was their forest homeland.


Now they live in settlements at the edge of the park. For the past 3 years, we have worked mainly within Kalehe Village, creating a more sustainable community, with clean water, improved livelihoods through our artisan coop, and education for children.
