PROMISE KIDS A FUTURE, INC. opened its doors as a mission minded non-profit in 2006. They are a licensed, Hague Accredited Adoption Agency in Kentucky.
In 2006 they developed a Sponsorship Program where individuals can make donations to provide support for an orphan, to gain an education, food, clothing and immediate needs. The Sponsorship Program has over 65 orphans that are being helped by monthly sponsors. In 2009 they opened an orphanage in Busia, Uganda, and Africa.
The Sponsorship Program has been in existence for more than 10 years, where they have had children graduate from high school and are now attending a University. Two orphans that have been with them from the beginning have continued to be graciously supported by their sponsors and are currently enrolled in Nursing.
This past summer the President of Uganda signed a bill halting all adoptions. With no government help or support, they are caring for many children that would otherwise have no chance of making it. It has been their goal over the last 10 years to try and make the orphanage more self-sustainable.
At the orphanage complex, they have been able to construct a building that is being designated for a clinic. It is their hope that both nursing students will return to the orphanage (which is their wish) and be employed by the orphanage as the staff nurses. In order for this to happen, they would open the clinic to the public so that both nurses could treat individuals, regardless of their ability to pay. They will also treat the orphanage children. It is a government requirement that they employ a full-time nurse. Since these students will be graduating next year, it is their hope to be able to open the clinic at that time.
The Wayne Hawley Giving Grant funds will be used to purchase the necessary certificates to operate a clinic along with purchasing the needed beds and equipment. They will also use the money to stock the clinic with the needed medicines, vitamins, re-hydration fluids, etc. After opening the clinic, allotments of the monies would be given quarterly for restocking until the clinic could become self-sustaining.
