Your Role

Your Role

This is where we invite you to step into your role with Under the Same Tree. To our program families, you are a cheering supporter, a trusted empowerer, a rock of stability, a wise investor, a partner and a friend. You are all of these things to them, and you are so important.

"Sometimes I feel like life is so overwhelming and am tempted to give up. But then I always remember that someone on the other side of the world chose to believe in me, and I feel like it's a miracle. That's why I can never give up." - UTST Kenya Program Member

Empower AFAMily

You can partner with a parent to prevent the effects of poverty in the life of their child. Our child sponsorship opportunity is unique in that while supporting a child's education and nutritional needs, part of the sponsorship goes to empowering their parent to build a consistent source of income, so that they can meet the needs of their children in the long-term. Child sponsorship starts at $30 per month.



Here is the opportunity to use your resources, time, and skills to directly transform lives around the world. We are matching entrepreneurs and business leaders in the USA with the entrepreneurs that we serve internationally.
