Living Waters International's programs address basic human and spiritual needs of the peoples of East Africa. We assist Roman Catholic missionaries and the people they serve. Our programs include student sponsorship and seminarians' support. Other projects include: construction of formation houses, schools, student hostels, churches, village chapels, health clinics, food relief, tuition assistance and teachers' salaries at Catholic schools, religious formation, retreats and support for the daily living expenses of religious, training of lay catechists, housing for the poor, wells, and solar and wind power facilities. We invite you to browse our various programs.

Student Sponsorship

Give a Gift that Lasts a Lifetime - Sponsor a Student's Education in Africa!


In the part of Africa hardest hit by AIDS, many children are denied even the most basic necessities of life. Your sponsorship of $25 monthly will help one of these children to a brighter future. Your contribution provides support for school tuition fees, books and school supplies, clothing, food, shelter, and health care.

Catholic missionaries of the Missionaries of St. Francis de Sales, the Sisters of Mercy of the Holy Cross, St. Ann's Sisters, and the Missionary Sisters of the Cross of Chavanod administer the Living Waters International student sponsorship program on the ground in Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, and Mozambique.

Once assigned a student for sponsorship, you are sent your child's biography and picture. In addition, you may correspond with your student.

The full amount of your tax-deductible contribution is sent to East Africa toward your student's support. To sponsor a student, visit our Donate page. For more information, contact us by any means listed on our Contact page.
