Uprising – Super Kids Event

Uprising helps vulnerable children in Uganda to rise above poverty and change the world. We are all born with unique talents and gifts and when we are given the opportunity to grow and discover our purpose, we become a blessing to others. However, when a child is struggling without even their basic needs met, they are unable to fulfill their unique calling and the whole world misses out on what could have been. We believe that you rise by lifting others and that life stories are changed through compassion and connection on both the side of the giver and receiver.

Uprising serves vulnerable children in Uganda that were once living on the streets. After many years of providing total care, these children have been successfully reintegrated with their families and communities. However, they continue to benefit from support focusing on educational and vocational opportunities as they work toward building a different future. Our goal is to come alongside their struggling families, keeping kids in school and breaking the cycle of poverty. We are also providing support for a foster home with seven young children that are orphaned by providing for their basic needs, including food, medical care and shelter.

In addition to our work directly supporting vulnerable children and families, we have successfully built a school in the rural village of Kankoole through our annual Super Kids event in partnership with the HFL Manor School. Over 400 students now attend the school , where there were previously limited opportunities for education. This includes children whose families are unable to pay even a minimal tuition and students are also provided with improved nutrition through a community garden. We are super proud that the Little Wings Academy is now able to stand on its own, changing future generations through the gift of education. 

This year, we are excited to once again partner with the HFL Manor School Super Kids for the event on 5/24! This year, we will help fund the construction of the Namanya Memorial Vocational Training Center that will provide job skills for street connected youth in Kampala. In addition, funds raised from the event will also be used to purchase land in the Kikona village in Uganda where a library and computer lab will be built to serve the surrounding community. The HFL Manor school Super Kids will be working hard to meet their own personal fitness goals and changing the world for other kids through their efforts on the track. We thank you for your support throughout the years that has made all of this possible.
