Children Up is an Elmhurst based mission providing schooling and support to children in northern Uganda. Charlie Laliberte, a retired teacher from York High School started the Children Up mission in the mid-2000 decade to support Ugandan children who would otherwise be without education. Schools are all private or church-sponsored in Uganda. In 2012, Elmhurst Presbyterian committed to sponsoring a student named Rovister, who is beginning her secondary education.
Children Up provides clothing, tuition and counseling support for the children of Uganda, who are still recovering from years of civil war and massive child abuse by military groups formerly operating in the country.
