At CARITAS, we hear many stories. The Field Coordinators at each of our locations are constantly providing daily updates that pertain to the status of our programs, as well as any special-need cases among the students. We approach each story that crosses our desks with care, drawing confidence from past experience with students that completed our program and raised themselves up out of disadvantaged life circumstances. And, although we know there are many who still need our help, we have faith that the optimistic stories of our successful children will reverberate notions of hope and perseverance through the communities in which we serve.

The least of our brothers and sisters are not always the smallest or youngest. Sometimes they are teens.
When looking to sponsor it is easy to be drawn to the young children. Young children (age 12 or younger) in general are sponsored much faster. This leaves many teens waiting, and waiting and waiting.
Dear Caritas Friends and Sponsors,
It gives us great pleasure to share a message we received this week (see below) from our Chief Coordinator and Technical Director in Uganda, which confirms all school funding for the Second Term is in place and all of our sponsored children are in school!
