Joncol Building Services proudly sponsor underprivileged children in Uganda through the ‘Aunties Angels’ program. Our monthly commitment provides these kids with an education, food and basic needs. Our dream is to make their lives ‘more liveable’.

If you would like to sponsor a child directly, please contact Tiffany at Aunties Angels – //www.facebook.com/groups/229498890486607/

For every new renovation or extension over $150,000 in 2017, we will commit to sponsoring another child in need, until they leave school. When you build with Joncol, it’s life changing!
