When you sponsor a seminarian to become a priest, within the next few years, an entire village can be improved through the efforts of one priest. Priests in Uganda do more than minister to the spiritual needs of their flock. They also help with developing clean water and education for their villages.
We're here to help raise money for seminarians in Uganda who are at risk of leaving seminary for lack of funds. The tuition cost is only $250 a semester, but Uganda is a very poor country and people don't have that kind of money. Most people make about $1 a day there. Seminarians work really hard and go to school for close to ten years before they are ordained as priests. These young men also need books, vestments and other items. So, just a little contribution, like just $5, can go a really long way.
