Rosa Thanks YOU!

Every day YOU give grandmothers new hope through YOUR support. 

YOU empower grandmothers to change their circumstances by giving them the tools they need to succeed. YOU are giving grandmothers vital supports like water harvesting tanks, farming tools, micro-finance loans, vocational training, and new homes, pit latrines, and smokeless kitchens.

Rosa is a 58-year-old widow raising four orphaned grandchildren. She struggled to get enough clean water for her family until she was given a water harvesting tank.

This is what Rosa had to say in her own words: 

"I am so happy for the water harvesting tank I received that I now use to store and harvest water that has greatly brought comfort and joy in my family. My children could move long distances during and after rainy season but now am ready to store enough clean water for my family." 

We hope Rosa's story inspires YOU to help grandmothers in need just like her.

Today is The Day!

Maverous
Maverous

We want to thank YOU for YOUR generous support.

Because of YOU, the Nyaka Vocational Secondary School is open and giving 50 students vital educational services and, thanks to YOU, Nyaka will be able to accept another class of students in February 2015, when the next school year begins.

In just four short years, the school will be at full capacity.

Generations from now, the school you are building today will still stand. Children will still be laughing and learning in these halls. As the years go by, the number of orphans YOU will have helped will only grow. 

What will the tiny village of Nyakagyezi look like after thousands of children have gone to school? It's exciting to imagine.

Maverous, one of YOUR Nyaka Vocational Secondary School students, dreams of being a teacher. She loves YOUR schools so much, she never wants to leave.

What will her future look like because YOU chose to invest in her?

 

YOU can help YOUR students reach their dreams!

Grandmothers Dream

Enid is 56 years old. She is raising 5 grandchildren. The youngest is 2 years old and the oldest is 8 years old. With such a full house, it's no surprise that Enid struggled to feed and care for her family. 

Thanks to YOUR support, she has been able to get training through her Granny Group to learn how to start a business and manage a micro-finance loan. After she was trained and felt confident in herself, she petitioned her Granny Group for a loan to start a coffee growing business. Her fellow Granny Group members voted to give her 300,000 Ugandan Shillings (that's $86.71 USD)!

Enid had a great profit her first year of 500,000 Ugandan Shillings ($200 USD). She used part of it to purchase a young bull that she plans to sell for 600,000 Ugandan Shillings ($240 USD).

Many grandmothers like Enid are using the business skills YOU taught them and the micro-finance loans YOU gave them to change their lives!

Thank YOU!

 

YOU can help YOUR Grandmothers reach their dreams!
