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!
Wonderful organization doing wonderful things for the children of Uganda!
Incredible non-profit organization! Honored & blessed to be a donor!
the impact of this ministry is so incredible. Lives are being changed, students are finding more and more hope in Jesus, and all aspects of physical growth are being improved. From children to adults, Simone’s Kids is making a difference in the lives in Nakaseke, Uganda.
I visited Simone's Kids school is Nakaseke Uganda in June 2019. The experience was incredibly wonderful, full of Love, Joy and Hope. The staff are 100% dedicated to each and every child in the program and encouraging more to join. I feel the Christian values and vision are above and beyond. The integrity and character of all the people I have met through Simone's Kids are impeccable and I appreciate that!
Last summer I was able to travel to Nakaseke and see the work that Simone’s Kids does. They partner with the community to enrich the children’s lives. They don’t just go into the community and give food and clothes to those that need them, they are partnering with the community to help kids get an education and learn about Jesus AND giving them access to meals and clothing.
I love their sponsorship model. As a donor I’m partnering with Simone’s Kids and the students to provide education to students who wouldn’t have access to it otherwise. And I know that they are being fed and being taught about the love of Jesus.
I have volunteered for Simone's Kids the last 4 summers. I have seen first hand the difference that it is making in the student's lives.
This summer I had a chance to travel with Simone’s kids to Nakasaka, Uganda. While I was in Nakasaka I was able to go to two school called God’s Hope Primary School and God’s Hope High School. This high school and primary school were on one compound that was split up between an upper and lower section, so it was very easy to walk to and from each school. While we were at the schools we were encouraged to create relationships with the students. I was able to meet many students that were my age and younger. I enjoyed being able to play with the younger kids in the primary school in the morning and then having deep conversations about God and other topics with the high schoolers in the evening.
Not only did we spend time with the students at the school we also got to visit some of their homes. One project that I got to partake in was delivering mattresses, mosquito nets and bed sheets to many families that are a part of the Simone’s Kids Organization. I was amazing to see how little many of these kids have and how happy they became when they simply got a mattress to sleep on. Many of these kids that go to God’s Hope and even some of the kids in the community were so grateful and thankful for the littlest things like getting a hug or just having someone to play with.
My family has been involved with Simone's Kids for years. Our daughters are getting to be a part changing the lives of children on the other side of the world--and seeing how easy it is. We supported for years, and recently have been given the honor of serving on the board of directors.
We have been supporting Simone's Kids for several years - great program and the money donated fulfills a tremendous need- they do a great job keeping us updated on progress and the children always look so happy - I love getting the handmade cards and pictures--will continue my support for this nonprofit organization
I learned of this organization by working a job with one of the volunteers. He went for the first time several years ago. Upon returning , he told of the needs ... I saw his heart ...his compassion . Each time he has gone I have seen the love in his eyes and the concern for these children . All of this has grown into a passion to help these children . Of course to help these children money is needed to provide for them. I ask you to pray and ask God what you should do concerning this ministry and to be obedient to Him . Whatever you do is between God and you but please put this ministry on your daily prayer list .
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.
I’ve known Simone for nearly 8 years and watched Simone’s Kids grow exponentially from passion and ideas to making an incredible difference for children in Uganda. The level of care and love that go into everything this organization builds and leads is astounding.
As a board member, I have been able to see the inner workings of this organization. I can validate its credibility and speak to the fact that these children are indeed supported by Simones Kids. It's wonderful to be a part of a cause that isn't a marketing scheme or a tax write off. But it's actually about helping the orphans of Uganda. I can't wait to go to Africa myself to meet our two sponsor children whom we've been supporting for years. We write letters send pictures and get great updates. We feel so connected to this great organization! Keep up the great work Simone!
My wife and I have supported Simone's Kids for many years. Simone is passionate and has a heart for the kids and works hard to keep us up to date with what's going on with the kids that we sponsor. Every sponsorship dollar goes to support each child. 100% of the money we give goes to directly support our sponsored kids! We work hard for our money, and we give freely knowing that by partnering with Simone's Kids, we are changing lives and making a difference!
Simone's kids had been such a blessing to our family. We have 2 boys that we sponsor and love being able to receive mail from them. We have also been able to travel to Uganda and see first hand the work that is being done at the school. Godfrey and Hope are doing an excellent job of running the school. We are very impressed with Simone and how she continues to improve the school and the kids well being. The library and food projects have been a tremendous help for all of the children. What a blessing Simone's kids is!
Simone is a real missionary with a great heart for children. She is a pacesetter in the realm of modern missions. Recently, she caught typhoid and malaria while in Africa but she has not allowed this to slow her down. She cares for her children and she inspires others to care about them too! I am proud to know her.
I learned of Simone's Kids just today. I am so excited to become involved in this ministry. Simone touched our lives in her testimony about how God is moving in this ministry. I truly believe God is using this ministry for his purpose & plan.
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.
Simone's kids is a wonderful nonprofit. It is very ,one on one, and you see the results affect the lives of the individual children involved.
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!
I have heard so many wonderful things about this organization. The volunteer that I know was so overcome by the selfless giving from Simone's Kids when he traveled to Uganda.
My older brother has been to Uganda multiple times with Simone's Kids. He's the reason I found out about this organization. I love being able to look at the pictures and updates on Facebook and I hope to go to Uganda one day soon too!
My brother works for Simone's Kids and loves it! I look forward to going to Uganda once I am old enough! It is a great organization and really does change the lives of the students in Uganda.
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.
This orphanage in Uganda is sponsored by a young woman named Simone. Her organization is called Simone's Kids. Simone began her endeavor while still a college student. Her fundraising efforts have resulted in the building of a school building for the primary school-aged children living in the orphanage. The next goal is to extend the educational facilities for the students needing secondary education.
Because of the efforts of Simone's Kids there has been health and child-care education for the workers in the orphanage as well as shoes and clothes regularly provided for the children. Simone oversees the monthly sponsorship of individual children who live in the orphanage. Supporters make a monthly monetary commitment to individual students that will ensure medicine and schooling. Teams making regular mission trips to the orphanage provide extra teaching, sports activities, personal supplies, and just plain fun. Because of the pictures on my refrigerator of two children, whom my husband and I sponsor, I am reminded daily of the work this incredible organization is accomplishing.
Simone's Kids is truly changing the lives and destinies of these children and deserves the honor of being named a Great Non-profit.
The work that Simone does is amazing! She has so much passion and is so driven to make a difference. I was so touched by her story and her goals for Simone's Kids that I had to be a part of it, even if it was just in some little way. She is doing great things for those beautiful kids and I can't wait to see what the next few years has in store for her and Simone's Kids!
We love supporting Simone's Kids through child sponsorship. We can see the progress of the organization by following their Facebook page. It's wonderful to see first hand the children's faces and the joy brought to their lives. Simone's visits truly make a difference and being just one part of that support system is a great feeling.
Hello, I am Hope. I am the head teacher at God's Hope Primary School. I am so grateful to have the organization of Simone's Kids. It has been such a blessing to the children and to the community of Nekesake. I used to send children away from school because they couldn't pay the fees but because of Simone's Kids, the children and their families don't have to pay any fees. We used to lack materials to use at school, but today we are blessed to have them. This is all thanks to Simone's Kids. We used to have to borrow books from others schools but now we have our own! There are so many children that have benefited from this ministry. Orphans and needy children have gotten shoes, uniforms and bags. When the team visits, they even take the children to the hospital if needed, they visit the student's homes and that has had a great impact. Everyone with Simone's Kids has shown so much love to us. So many things have been done by the ministry and we thank God for all that they do. We pray for them always to be blessed. They care for the children so much that they are providing education, meals and even the best health care. They treat scalp conditions, wounds and they provide us with clean water resources.
Before Simone's Kids, I feared standing before the children at school because people said that our school was not good and that we were wasting time. But now I am so proud of what Simone's Kids has provided for us. I am blessed and thankful for all that the ministry has done, not only for me, but all of the children in the school and community. May The Lord bless you and meet all your needs.
I first learned of Simone's Kids from my daughter, Marisa Roy. Marisa is in middle of her second trip to Uganda this year. She is ministering to these children, whom she loves so much. Simone's Kids is an excellent organization, dedicated to improving the lives of the children at Gods Hope Primary School. Because of this ministry children's lives are changed daily. As a sponsor I am honored to help just a little with this worthy cause. I've never seen a picture of a child who doesn't have a huge smile. To me, that shows the change that this ministry has already made in their lives. I know for a fact that Simone's Kids has changed Marisa Roy's life as well as anyone who has spent one moment with these children.
Hi, I am Godfrey, the school administrator at God's Hope Primary School. I have been working with Simone's Kids since 2010. Since then, I have seen many children's lives change from hopeless to hopeful.
It's not very easy to notice what your humble donations can do for the young children, until you visit us. The children who had no food before, you can see them now share food at school. It brings me to have more joy and confidence to serve God than ever before. It takes me another step of faith when I see children who had no classrooms to be while reading when they sit in a classroom now with desks. I expect an even brighter future for the children at God's Hope Primary School. First, when the school had just started, none of us knew what may come the next day because food was a dream to the children and those who could not afford to pay some fees had dropped out of school, leading to having to almost close the school, but thanks to Simone's Kids ministry who came to the rescue of the young children who had lost hope in an area.
Before Simone's Kids, one would think I was sick from having to pay the teachers and not being able to. But when Simone's Kids came, the stress was gone! Thank God my life has improved. I am always having a wide smile because I can now pay teachers and other workers without stress!!
Working with Simone's Kids has given me an opportunity to meet important people, especially the team members who always visit us. Among them, I can mention Mason Satterfield and Marisa Ann Roy.
I feel true life when I serve God in this ministry. Thank God for Simone's Kids.
I first heard about Simone’s Kids on the campus of Lee University. While I was impressed that someone so young could take on something so large, I was blown away after hearing Simone speak at several events. The passion in her voice and the tears in her eyes let everyone know that these were her kids and her desire to take care of them was evident. During my time at Lee, I was given the chance to work with Simone’s Kids and see the organization grow and I’m so grateful for those opportunities. The work still being done is incredible and I know that so many kids are being given a better life thanks to this organization. Simone’s Kids is a constant reminder that one person, no matter what their age, can make a huge difference to those around the world.
Simone's Kids is a wonderful organization, dedicated to improving the lives of the children in Uganda. How do I know this? My son, Mason, has had the opportunity to serve with the founder in Uganda for the past two summers, and is currently there for a three month stay. Because of Simone's Kids, children are able to receive a free education at God's Hope Primary School through sponsors. The volunteers work to meet the physical needs of the orphans, as well as providing unending love and emotional support.
I have known the founder, Simone, for several years now. She has a huge heart for these kids in Uganda, and her passion has been evident from the moment I met her. We have had many conversations about the kids, the school, and her vision for both, and I know with absolute certainty that all she wants is what is best for these kids. She wants to give them a hope and a future, something that they would not have if it weren't for Simone's Kids and the supporters and volunteers behind the organization. I became a supporter of Simone's Kids right out of college, and I have never regretted that decision. I know that every donation is handled with integrity and truly goes to better the future of the children of God's Hope Primary School. Simone's Kids is an organization that helps these students to break through the cycle of poverty and find opportunities for a better life while showing the love of Christ to each child on a daily basis. I believe wholeheartedly in the mission and vision and leadership of Simone's Kids!
I first began volunteering with Simone's Kids in the summer of 2013 when I traveled with a team of people to Uganda. I instantly fell in love with the children that the ministry serves! Because of the work of Simone's Kids, there are over 400 children that are getting an elite education for free. After the trip, I began to sponsor two children that I had met while I was there. It is a huge blessing in my life to be given the opportunity to work with Simone and her organization. Knowing that every single penny that is raised or donated goes to bettering the life of the amazing children makes every effort more than worth it. Right now, the ministry is building a new school building for the students, providing two meals a day for each child and also supplying school supplies. Because I have been to meet and get to know the children, I can truly say that the work that Simone's Kids does is not only changing the lives of those children, but changing my life.
I began volunteering with Simone's Kids earlier this year. I have truly enjoyed my time spent volunteering with this organization. I also began sponsoring a sweet little girl. I love getting pictures and letters from her. It's great to see how well she is doing thanks to Simone's Kids. This organization is doing a great job in making a difference in this world.
We were introduced to Simone's kids by a student at Lee University. Simone's charity is so inspiring because when she saw a need, she did something about it by starting this amazing charity. Sponsorship is completely affordable and there's nothing better than getting a response from those precious children. She has teams that travel, you get updates all the time, and you can trust your money is being used for what you've allocated it for. Such little money monthly to completely change a life. It's an amazing charity.
Simone's Kids has put real faces behind the need in Africa. While Simone and the teams that travel to Uganda are the hands and feet we as donors get to share in their progress through social media. We have watched school buildings being erected, classrooms get filled with simple school supplies and in some instances seen what basic medical care can do for the children. Simone's Kids is straight forward on how the donated dollars are utilized, monthly cost to feed a child, the cost of desks and books, even the cost to build the schools. Simone's love for these kids is contagious.
I am so happy to write a review for Simone's Kid. I have had great experience with Simone (founder of Simone's Kids. Her passion is evident in her drive and work for her kids. It has been fun to watch over the last few years how the school has grown. I would recommend everyone to watch all of the you tube videos to see the progression of the school. If you are considering giving to this organization you won't think twice after meeting Simone and hearing her vision!
I loved having the opportunity to help Simone get letters out to the families that are supporting this great cause. it was an equal privilege to hear Simone's story, her heart, and her passion for these kids and their future. There are not enough of us in this world that are willing to go and live out the Great Commission. It's an honor to help Simone in her endeavors. Her inspiration causes us to not only pray for her safety and success with these children, but also that God would put the same sense of urgency and passion in our own hearts!
Simone's heart for these orphans exceeds their need for help. I am proud to be a very small part of such a great organization. We are called to "Sing to the Lord, all the earth; proclaim his salvation day after day. Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples" and that is what Simone's Kids does every day (1 Chronicles 16:23-24). I know the Father is pouring out his blessings through this non-profit.
I know the founder of Simone's Kids personally and I can honestly say that she has the biggest heart of anyone I know. Her heart breaks for the Children in Uganda who have much less than our standard in America. She understands that these children just need a hope for their future; they need to know that they CAN come out and rise above their current circumstance and SImone's Kids is dedicated to giving them every opportunity possible. The non-profit has made great progress for the children so far, and I can not wait to see what more our contributions can do for these beautiful children.
I was able to travel with Simone's Kids to Uganda this summer for three and a half weeks. It was an incredible experience where I was able to help the community in Nakaseke, Uganda. We worked with the children of God's Hope Primary School by working to better their lives through health and education. We traveled to many different foster homes and talked with the guardians about any needs that we could help with. We also started the building project of the new building of the school. Simone worked hard to make sure the buildings would be good quality and cost effective. Another team member and I were also able to go to each ward of the local hospital, putting together a list of things that they needed. Overall working with Simone's Kids was one of the best experiences I have ever had. I plan to return to Uganda next summer for two months.
Simone's Kids gives the Gospel of Christ feet. I will support this ministry over and over again because I can see the results of my giving and the lives changed.
An incredible cause. Simone is a selfless young lady that has committed her life to these beautiful children. I am cautious with my charitable contribution dollars and am very blessed to donate to this ministry. Denise Castro, CPA
A young woman who recently graduated from Lee University was compelled after visiting Uganda in Africa, to begin an organization that aided the children she encountered. The organization has been growing since it's beginnings thanks to the loyal support of those who also see a need and wish to help respond. This organization is very well-planned, thought out, and efficient with everything it receives. It's a wonderful non-profit to support!
Simone's Kids is a WONDERFUL organization. Unlike other non-profits where you donate money but never really see where your money is going, Simone's Kids makes a great effort to show you the difference you are making. Whether through letters to your sponsor child, email updates of the progress being made in the school building efforts in Africa or photos or the children receiving the aide you are giving, every donor is shown the very real impact they are making. I would highly recommend supporting this organization as it is run by a woman with a heart for God's children and is truly a demonstration of Christ's call for our lives.
"But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth". 1 John 3:17-18
I recently sponsored a child from Simone's Kids. I was very impressed with the work Simone is doing. I especially like being able to follow the projects and activities going on in Uganda, through Facebook. Its great to be able to see the improvements this organization is making in the lives of so many children.
I was so impressed by the direction this organization is headed and the impact it has already made in the lives of these children, that I am planning on volunteering with Simone's Kids in Uganda next summer.
We had an opportunity at work to see a presentation by Simone Puccinelli of Simone's Kids and were very impressed with the work she is doing and the lives they are changing. We had an opportunity to sponsor a child or make a donation. I was one that adopted a 6 year old girl to help fund her education. we received a photo of her and are able to send her letters and small items to encourage her learnng. I have recommended Simone's Kids to many people because i feel this is a very well thought out organization yet it still has the personal touch. it is amazing what one girl from Taylorsville Georgia has been able to accomplish starting this organization. Please support Simone's Kids
Simone's Kids is a wonderful non profit. I doante and follow her on facebook. You get to see your money at work imediatley. And you get to see those wonderful smiling faces of the beautiful children she serves in Africa. Getting these children sponsered so they can attend to school and building a school is the going to be the advantage these children have to change the world as adults. What a blessing.
I am new to Simone's Kids. I am a sponsor of a child for $12.00 a month. I still find it hard to believe that I am helping a child for such a small amount. To help a child with their education is such an important thing. It will help her see the love of God and help her build a future for herself and her family. I am thankful that Simone and her volunteers are being the hands and feet of our Lord. May God bless you all!
The work that Simone is doing is so needed. She is changing the lives of so many special children who deserve an education and adequate food and shelter. Her heart is dedicated to doing even more and there is no doubt in my mind that she will accomplish this.
I donte money to Simone's Kids because I see the difference we make in the children's lives. My husband and I donate monthly to make a change in a child's life.
Simone's Kids is a non-profit organization designed to provide an education, housing, clothes and food for underprivlege kids and orphans. This ministry was birthed in the Simone heart as a young girl after visiting Uganda on a missions trip. Simone believes that every child's needs should be provided along with being introduced to Jesus. The cost to provide the necessarities in Uganda are minimal compared to the U.S. If everyone would simply sacrifice a fast food meal per week, the yearly needs of these children would be met with this simple sacrifice.
We love supporting Simone's Kids. The work that Simone is doing for these kids is amazing. These 300 kids are now getting the education that they need and food. Simone is a very driven person and is doing a great work for these kids.
Simone's kids is an amazing charity and ministry! I love seeing photos of the children whose lives are being changed by what God is doing through Simon's kids! This charity/ministry really puts life and the things we take for granted into perspective. It really makes you more appreciative of the lives we are able have in America. Simones kids is a progam that strives to give these children the same quality of education and life that we get here! Seeing God work never gets old!
Simone's Kids is an awesome non profit organization that directly helps children. The monies donated go to the kids and securing their learning enviroment. Last year a building fund was begun to purchase land and began building facilities to provide a school for the children. The land was purchased and the classrooms were begun. If you are looking for a true work in progress to donate to this is a great one.
I have personally donated money to Simone's Kids, and I have seen the work that Simone has done to make the childrens dreams reality. For example every year Simone takes the children on a field trip. It is fun to see all the pictures from these field trips, it really shows how much the organization invest in the children.
From my personal experience with Simone's Kids, I have fallen in love with the non-profit. Simone is an excellent manager and handles the organization very well. I was fortunate enough to actually go to Uganda this past summer with a 5 person team, and could not believe how smoothly everything runs. Seeing what the company's focus is on (the kids) made me so happy, because I feel that so many people in control of non-profits let other personal wants and needs cross over with the funds that are raised for the purpose of the non-profit. Simone is in love with the people of Uganda, and I know that Simone's Kids will do incredible things in Nakaseke, Uganda.
