Meet Bruce! He is 15-years-old and a primary 7 student at Kutamba.

He has 2 siblings and hails from a village called Rugazi.

YOU provide him with opportunity to fulfill all of his dreams. When he grows up he wants to be a Doctor so he can save lives just as YOU have saved his! Bruce is a very hands-on and caring child. After school he loves to take the animals out for grazing and watches over them carefully.

But don’t worry! He has his fun too! In his free time, Bruce loves to play soccer with his friends!

YOU inspire and help to provide for him in every way you can. YOU give him books, meals, clean water, school supplies, an education and so much more! Bruce is most thankful to YOU about providing him with free education. In fact, he plans on earning top grades this year, because he really wants you to be proud of him!

YOU are saving lives!

YOU are changing the lives of children like Tedius.

After his father passed away from HIV/AIDS, his mother could not afford to send Tedius to school. For so many children in Uganda, this is the beginning of a very sad story. Without YOU, Tedius’ story would be just like many of them. He would be tending the herd in the fields or fetching firewood.

But YOU saved Tedius' life.

Because of YOU he is a student at Kutamba Primary School with big dreams of becoming a pilot when he grows up.

YOU have put children like Tedius where they belong…in school.

In Tedius’ words, “Thank you for loving me.”

YOUR children love you and they are so grateful for everything YOU have done for them.

I am amazed by YOU!

Jolly loves YOU!

YOU are making a difference for women like Jolly.

After her husband left her with three grandchildren to care for, Jolly needed help. She already had a grocery store business but, without more capital, it was not enough to support her and her grandchildren.

Because of the support YOU have given, Jolly was able to make her case to her granny group, get a microloan, and increase her business. Jolly also received training to improve her business to ensure that her loan could do the very best for her.

Because of YOU, she can afford to send her three grandchildren to school without help from Nyaka!

She is a leader in her community showing young girls that they too can be successful businesswomen.

When you give to the Grandmother Project, you are not just providing vital support to 7,005 grandmothers and their 43,000 children. YOU are strengthening an economy. YOU are building a community. YOU are empowering people to be agents of change in their own lives.

YOU have given Jolly and many other women like her hope.

I am in awe of YOU!
