COVID-19 Emergency Response

During these times of uncertainty, our ministries around the world are being affected in ways which are difficult for us to imagine. 

Support our Teachers!

Our ministries in Africa have had to close their schools to avoid the spread of COVID-19.  In many cases, the teachers at our schools are paid monthly from the monthly tuition collected from the students.  No students, no tuition, no paychecks.  There are no unemployment benefits in Africa.  With no paychecks, our teachers and their families will go hungry during this time.  We must look after our teachers at home and abroad during this crisis.

An average monthly teacher salary is just $200.  UrbanPromise International has over 100 teachers.  When you sponsor a teacher through UrbanPromise International you are providing hope in these challenging times!


Feed our Children!

All African countries in which UrbanPromise International operates have executed lock-down orders, closing schools and businesses. This has caused the neediest families, the families to which our affiliates minister, to fall into extremely desperate situations. Some of our UPI affiliates have had children taken to the hospital for starvation.  Please come alongside our UPI ministries with a one time gift to provide a family with cornflour and beans, helping everyone in that family stay alive. Won't you join us as we come alongside these ministries?
