How the Gift Shop/Vouchers work


Buying a Gift of Life is easy, will make a real difference to a Ugandan school or family, and is a wonderful way to honour a friend or loved one. Simply decide which gift (or gifts!) you want to buy - we have a range of prices to suit everybody's needs and wallets! Once you have decided which gifts you wish to purchase, you can indicate (for each gift) if you want your friend or loved one to receive an e-card or a post card. Here's a quick look at how this works:

1. You choose and purchase your Gifts of Life.

2. If you choose to send Gift of Life e-cards, you can select the style and personalise the message to the recipient during the purchase process; a link to the card will be sent to the person you want to honour on the day you designate.

3. If you prefer to give Gift of Life card(s) in person or by post, we will forward you the card so you can write a message and give or send it to the recipient. (Please take the time to view the appearance of the postal card as these cannot be customised, and will simply feature a picture of the gift).

4. The funds are sent to the Fields of Life Kampala office where the goods are purchased for families and schools participating in the Gifts of Life programme.

5. The Fields of Life Kampala staff instructs and guides the beneficiary family or school to facilitate their steps to self-sufficiency.


Buying a Voucher is an easy way to help. All you have to do is choose which programme you want to support and the voucher amount. A card will be posted to you to pass on to the recipient. Here's a quick look at how our voucher programme works:

1. You choose a programme to support; water, playgrounds, school agriculture or textbooks.

2. You decide what value the voucher will have.

3. A voucher is forwarded (by post only) to you and you can pass it on to the recipient to let he or she know that it was purchased on their behalf.

4. The funds are sent to the Fields of Life Kampala office where they will be utilised to support the project costs of whichever programme you chose.

Fields of Life want you and the recipient of your gift/voucher to know that you are making a vital difference in East Africa. This is really a gift which gives continually - to an individual, to a family, and to a community throughout the year! It is for this that Fields of Life thank all Gift of Life purchasers in advance for helping others to help themselves.
