Hello! I've been donating to Simone's Kids for the last couple of years! This is a great non-profit because I know that the money I donate is really supporting the kids over there. I've received plenty of updates about what is going on and have also received items and letters from the kid I help support! The school has grown tremendously and I love that the kids are being taught the word of God. Simone is also a very loving and devoted person to these kids. She has given so much time to this especially for the age she is. This is a lot of dedication and love for a young adult! Thank you Simone for your hard work and most of all your love! God is great and He called you for this!

I was introduced to this incredible organization last year and have been so uplifted by the love and care shown to the kids there in Uganda! I began donating and received letters, pictures and cards from my sweet student. Simone's Kids keeps me updated on whats happening and the growth that they are experiencing. I am so excited to join the team this summer to experience it myself!

We have supported Simones Kids for four years and had the privilege to go to Uganda for two weeks last summer to see the school and the children first hand. This is a wonderful work that puts every dollar received to good use for the children. I would highly recommend supporting this very worthwhile cause.

Simone's Kids has done an awesome job of raising money and building a school in Uganda. I just got a letter from the little girl my husband and I support. She said it is great having and desk and a clean and beautiful classroom to work in. We have sponsored her going on two years and her improvement in writing and expressing herself is amazing. Simone's Kids is a great non-profit organization. I have seen several videos and heard reports from volunteers who have been in Uganda working for Simone's Kids and the work they have done and are still doing is awe-inspiring.

I work full time, so I have not made the actual trip to see the children. My contribution has been doing art work on containers for use to collect change. We use the photos of the actual children, and acrylic paint to decorate the boxes for donations. This has been very rewarding. Simone always keeps us up to date with what the money collected goes for on social media sites. It feels very rewarding to make a difference in a childs life!

we found out about Simone's Kids through a fine young man from our church who has spent several months in Uganda teaching English at God's Hope Primary School. we look forward to reports, pictures, and updates on the children we help to sponsor. at Christmas, our family took part in the A Classroom for Christmas project. we made contributions in honor of our grandchildren to this project, and each grandchild was excited to be helping children from Uganda, instead of receiving just another present.

if you are looking for a beautiful charity which really makes a difference in a third-world country, this is it, i believe!

After we sponsored our child with Simone's Kids in Uganda, we loved getting the regular updates of how our donation helped a child in need. Simone's Kids is personable and I love seeing the pictures of all the children in their new classroom, playing on the playground, and just living life on their Facebook page. You can see from the photos that the children love to see Simone coming for a visit. A great cause we will continue to support.
