We have hand selected 6 children and 3 young adults that we believe will thrive from a personal sponsorship.

You can either completely sponsor a child OR donate a portion of what is needed. Another way you can sponsor is by doing it with a group of friends, family or co-workers where each person donates a portion to sponsor the child together.

Sponsoring can help them with  furthering their education, giving them basic needs  and for some help with medical care.


Things to know:

  • Each school year has 3 terms

  • Students from preschool on have to pay to go to school as well as for all their supplies and uniforms, this is where many families are not able to support their children going to school because of cost. This also ends up keeping the family & the community at a poverty level.

  • When you choose to sponsor you can ask for updates and information about their needs.

  • We will provide letters and videos from them to you!


Ryan's Bowl does many things but at times we don't have the funds to help these children who we feel deserve that extra care. By adding this to our list of what we do we can see to it that we can elevate their lives and add to their communities!

We thank you for your consideration & support!

This  is Cyrus. He was born a happy and healthy baby but later at the age of 10 he fell sick which made him not be able to walk freely again. When we found him we was crawling because he had no cane or anything to support him up.

He is a clever boy and loves going to school! Sadly his father deserted him after seeing the state he was in crawling so he had to stay at home for a year without going to school. During that time he found ways to sell food or different things so he could pay for his own school fee's. When we met him and saw his inspiring drive we knew he deserved a chance! This year he passed the primary (elementary) exams with great marks but his father still doesn't want to support him or put him through secondary (high school) as he believes because of his legs it would be a waste.

He just needs people who believe in him to help with his medication, care and the opportunity to finish his education!

At 8 years old they are in primary 3.

Patience is the daughter of a Reverend who is also a teacher at one of the schools we are in supporting and feeding students. Because the monthly income is so low the option of sending children to post secondary schooling is very difficult. Especially if your child is advanced and is looking at becoming a pharmacist! 

Patience is very true to her name she is a great student and daughter. When she is not in school she is helping in the church or reading verses from the bible. 

Her goal is to become a pharmacist but the school fee's are too high for anyone in the family to support.

Joram is the older brother to Patience. 

Just like Patience he has excelled in school and at home he is always a helping hand. When he is not helping around the house you can find him with his sister at church helping with reading and anything that needs to get done. 

Again since the Reverend isn't able to afford such advanced schooling we are looking for help to send him to school to be a Mechanical Engineer!

This is another family who has the desire to do better but because of income can not further their children's education. The school that Silver will be attending is one that has recently opened up which also caters to those who are deaf.

He should be in grade one currently but is not able to attend school. His father lost his job and shortly afterwards the parents separated leaving him with his grandmother. Since she was unable to care for him more than giving him shelter we are looking at putting him back in school so he can have a chance at an education and a better future.
