Child sponsorship in action
Amongin Grace was sponsored from the age of ten, meaning she could complete her primary education at Adodoi primary school in Uganda and go on to secondary school.
Thanks to her sponsorship and to the government's universal secondary education scheme, Grace, now 19, says she benefited from an improved learning environment that had better desks and sanitary facilities, and which prioritised girls' education and the prevention of violence against girls.
"I'm now working very hard to ensure I become a nurse, to serve my people in the newly constructed health centre in my village."
Akello Margaret attended the same school as Grace, and was sponsored between the ages of 13 and 18. She clearly recalls when her school was improved by a new three-classroom block.
Other ActionAid schemes in her village provided her father with a young pig for breeding - the proceeds of this bought the family a bull. This increased the family's land and a loan given by the village's revolving loan scheme helped them buy goats.
