About This Mission Project
The Village2Village Project (V2V) in rural Uganda works with more than 100 orphans and vulnerable children living with extended family. V2V builds leaders through comprehensive care from preschool through university-level education.
The Student Tuition Expense Program (STEP) provides scholastic materials for unsponsored V2V children so that they can continue their educations without interruption as they wait for sponsors.
- $50 buys graph books and pencils for 40 students.
- $100 covers lunch for 20 students for a week.
- $250 buys copy paper and exercise books for 100 students for one term.
- $350 provides 40 primary school uniforms.
- $500 covers transportation between the village and the school for 60 students for one term.
Mission Project Specifics
This project seeks to raise $5,000 in the next year to purchase school and hygiene supplies and to assist with tuition for unsponsored V2V children in Uganda. This will provide consistent quality education and care for 120 children.
This project will be managed by Laurie Kroll, executive director of V2V, and the Ugandan staff.
It is anticipated that this project will improve the students’ overall education by preventing gaps in their education from a temporary lack of funding. Thank you for caring about the children in Uganda!
Connect to This Mission Project
- Pray with Laurie Kroll and V2V in Uganda that, as the children grow into teens and young adults, they will become more aware of the abuse and neglect they suffered as children so they can turn to Jesus as the source of their healing.

Twelve years ago, Acen Sarah was alone and running from rebels, carrying only a sheet and a dress. Today she is part of V2V, studying at a good Uganda school and teaching a Sunday school class. STEP funds pay her tuition while she is without a sponsor.
