Building Up Big Dreams!

Construction of the NVSS Boys Dormitory
Construction of the NVSS Boys Dormitory

YOU are building up Big Dreams in Uganda!

Because of YOUR support, construction has begun on the Boys' Dormitory. This is essential because it needs to be completed to make room for the new class of students who will be attending NVSS next year.

We wanted to share the pictures to show the amazing things YOUR love and compassion can do.

When this school is complete, all of YOUR Nyaka and Kutamba Primary School graduates will know that their secondary or vocational education will be high quality and that they will have the same great supports in secondary school that they had in primary school. 

Because of YOU, they will have the freedom and help they need to chase their dreams!

 

YOU can help YOUR students reach their dreams!

July 15th (Next Wednesday)

starting at 9:01am (EST)

A gift to ANY Nyaka project will be matched 50%!

(Only one gift of up to $1,000 can be matched)

We hope you will join us!

Big Dreams

YOU are inspiring students to dream!

YOU have done so much to help YOUR students in Uganda.

Right now 697 HIV/AIDS Orphans are in school because of YOU.

They have everything they need to succeed: two hot meals a day, school uniforms and new shoes, medicine, and all of their school supplies. 

This year has brought some pretty big firsts! Nyaka's third school, the Nyaka Vocational Secondary School, was opened in February thanks to YOUR support and YOUR pioneer students are headed off to University in the fall. 

YOUR achievements this year will only grow. We expect YOUR students to continue to excel and reach their dreams. But the power of YOUR impact in Uganda is stronger than you realize. 

Every time a student goes to University, all of the younger students see what is possible. Opening the door for just one student, gives every student the hope that THEY could one day achieve their dream too. Suddenly becoming a doctor or a lawyer doesn't seem so unattainable.

In the years to come, we cannot wait to see what more of YOUR students will do. What dreams they will chase and the amazing ways they will breathe life back into their community. 

When you read those stories only a few years from now YOU will know that

YOU made all of this possible

because YOU chose to invest in their dreams. 

Thank YOU!

 

YOU can help YOUR students reach their dreams!

Aidah Sleeps Soundly Thanks to YOU!

Aidah standing in front of her house

Aidah's house is crumbling. The roof leaks and has completely caved in on one side.

She, her frail, aging husband, and their five-year-old grandson now sleep in the smokeless kitchen YOU built for them because their house is no longer safe.

At 68 years old, Aidah is aging and unwell herself but she is the strongest of her family. Her husband and their grandson rely on her to care for them. She has only a small plot of land that can't grow enough food to feed them all, let alone to sell at the market.

Can you imagine the relief she felt when her Granny Group voted to use some of the funds YOU gave them to build her a new home this year?  

She and her family will be sleeping in a new, safe house this year because of YOU!

From Aidah and all of YOUR 7,004 grandmothers who sleep easier at night because of YOU,

Thank YOU!

 

p.s. I just want to give you a head's up! Global Giving will be offering us 50% matching on July 15th! I will send you more information as the date gets closer!

This is what Aidah
This is what Aidah's new house will look like.
