The 1200 children at the Mbiriizi Primary school in Uganda are looking forward to their Christmas when the school year ends in 15 days.

They are excited not by Game Boys, Legos or iPads, but by simple gifts that bring warmth and dignity. Last year each child got a new blanket.

This year each girl will get a new dress and each boy a new shirt. To make this happen, Sylvia’s Children needs your help.

Please help us give them a wonderful Christmas and continue to bring these joyous smiles to their faces. Read more about Sylvia’s Children at or contact Sylvia Allen herself and see what needs you can help.
