Review for Children Up, Elmhurst, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I became involved in ChildrenUP from a student of mine. She asked if I would be willing to donate a piece of Jewelry for their silent auction at the Spring Gala. I learned that they don't just give the children money for education, but they have a wonderful mentor system. They have in-school mentors and visiting mentors that keep track of the students. They are there to provide solutions for students to keep them on the road to success. ChildrenUP is run by a dedicated board who is passionate about providing education to worthy students in northern Uganda. ChildrenUP provides the students' sponsors with grades, letters and information on how well the student is doing in school. I know that the money they collect goes to help the students. When the schools closed due to COVID, they provided the students with study materials, cell phones with a solar battery charger and held small study groups to keep the students engaged in their studies.

Thank you for those kind words! We are very proud of our mentor program. It is nice to know that they students have someone they can go to when they have issues or just to talk.
