Sister Schools has been partnering with local school children in our community, and across the globe, since 1988. We are a nonprofit organization registered in Washington State and Uganda, East Africa.
Sister Schools teaches compassion, service, and social responsibility by partnering students in donor schools with children in need. Sister Schools achieves this through two complimentary goals: First, providing students the life-changing and character building experience of personal giving; and second, providing supplies, hope and inspiration to children in need.
What We Do
Sister Schools is dedicated to giving children a better understanding of the world in which they live and helping them experience the life-changing effect of personally giving to those less fortunate than themselves.
Through pictures and stories, the overwhelming difficulties faced by children in Ugandan schools, and orphanages, is made real. A school supply drive is then organized and students are encouraged to participate in ways that are meaningful to them. Both new and used items are accepted.
After the gifts are distributed in Uganda, a return presentation is given showing our local school children the direct impact of their specific gifts. Our children see the difference they’ve made in another child’s life.
