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.

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!

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.

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!

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!
