MEET 'PAPA' KEN KNOWLES

After retiring from a career as a structural engineer in Connecticut, Ken moved to Uganda in 2007 - at the age of 68 - and founded the Awinjo House children's home in Uganda. Now, after almost 10 years of overseas orphan ministry, the Lord has connected Papa Ken to the Campbell family to pass on the leadership of Awinjo House and to carry the ministry into the future.

While it costs $144 per month to fully provide for each child, we’ve broken that amount down to $36 levels so that families & individuals can partner with Awinjo House in a way that is more affordable. And 100% of the money that is given to sponsor a child is used to provide for each child:

  • Food
  • Clothing
  • School Fees
  • Medical Expenses
  • Ugandan Mamas & Papas

- FAQs For Advocates & Partners -

How much of the Partnership money actually goes to the children?
100% of the money that you give will go directly to providing for the children. Because our directors, volunteers, interns, and foreign missionaries all have separate sources of income, we do not use any of the Partnership money for those things. Instead, 100% of the money is used to provide the children with food, clothing, school fees, medical expenses, Ugandan mamas and papas, our Ugandan staff, and everything else necessary to provide each child a loving family environment.

As a Volunteer, how many people do I have to recruit to be Partners?
There is no specific number required - we are just grateful that you want to volunteer. But a good goal to have is to recruit 4 Partners in the first 3 months of volunteering.

As an Advocate, will I get paid a salary or commission?
No. Being an Advocate for Awinjo House is completely optional and on a volunteer basis.

Can I eventually stop volunteering as an Advocate?
Yes. There is no contract or requirement for being an Advocate, so you can stop whenever you choose or keep recruiting as long as you would like. Simply send us an email or submit a contact form letting us know your decision and we will remove you from the list.

How do I learn more about the Partnership Program?
You will receive additional information about the Program after signing up as an Advocate, but you can learn more about the Partnership Program here: Awinjo House Partnership Program

How did you choose those amounts for the Partnership Program?
It costs $144 per month to provide for each child at Awinjo House. So we simply divided that amount into $36 levels so that Partnership would be more affordable for families and individuals.

Will I get regular updates about the children and how they are doing?
Yes. All of our Partners will receive regular updates on individual children at Awinjo House. This may include email updates, personal letters, video updates, and some planned video chats.

Can I sponsor an individual child?
No. The Partnership Program is designed for each Partner to connect with, pray for, interact with, and invest in our entire community of children instead of only one child. We have chosen this type of program for 2 primary reasons:

 1) To Combat Favoritism. When so many children are living in an orphanage together, it creates division, disunity, and an attitude of favoritism between the children who have sponsors and those who don't.
 2) Integrity in Fundraising. Most organizations that promote individual child sponsorships don't work with orphanages, but rather individual families. So those organizations can be confident that a specific donation is given to a specific family or child. But when Awinjo purchases fish for supper or pays a Mama's salary, there is no way for us to ensure that a specific portion of each donation goes to a specific Mama or a specific fish for a specific child in the orphanage. So to communicate and operate with the highest level integrity, we have chosen to use an Orphanage Partnership model instead of individual sponsorships.

Is my monthly Partnership tax-deductible?
Yes. Awinjo House is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization and can receive tax-deductible donations. We will send out giving statements to each of our Partners to be used when filing taxes.
