YOU did so much for your grandmothers in 2013!
Through the grandmother project, you built:
The homes YOU have built keep YOUR grannies and the children they care for safe and healthy.
We were also able to give out 72 micro finance loans to grannies to give them the capital to start their own businesses. YOU made a difference in the lives of women like Beatrice. Because of YOUR support, Beatrice was able to open her own store and can now pay the school feels of her three children.
YOU are breaking the cycle of poverty and helping grannies like Beatrice be good role models for the young girls and women who are growing up in their community.

We join you in congratulating your Nyaka class of 2013!
78 students graduated from primary school and secondary school. Thanks to YOUR hard work and donations this was possible!
One of our graduates, Justine, has overcome very difficult and painful obstacles to achieve this accomplishment.
When Justine was in primary school, her dress caught on fire while she was lighting a lamp. Justine suffered through terrible burns on her face, arms, back, and chest.
Justine’s scars made her skin so tight, that she had trouble smiling and closing her eyelids. Through the support of people like YOU and the generous donation of The Shriner Hospital for Children in Boston, she was able to get the medical care she needed to keep her healthy and in school.
YOU have given Justine so much through your support and, because of YOU, Justine is standing proudly beside her peers as a strong woman ready to make an impact for her community.
There are more girls like Justine who are ready to change the world.
YOU are ensuring that they will.
