Girls Dream Too!

YOU are giving girls the freedom to dream!

For many girls in Uganda, dreaming about what job they could have when they graduate or even graduating from high school can feel unattainable. Girls face some pretty big challenges.

Before girls in Uganda turn eighteen...

  • 1 in 4 will have a pregnancy.
  • 1 in 3 will be married.
  • 1 in 3 will experience sexual assault.
  • 8 in 10 will not attend secondary school.
  • They will miss as many as 24 days of school every year because they don't have sanitary pads.

Girls who have been orphaned by HIV/AIDS are at even greater risk than their peers.

That's why YOUR support is so important. When girls see role models like Shirah who was just accepted to Vancouver Island University on a full scholarship, they see what is possible.

Thanks to YOU, girls in Uganda have the support they need to stay in school. YOU give them quality sex education, sanitary napkins so they can stay in school, and free education. Every girl who attends YOUR new Nyaka Vocational Secondary School is promised support if she becomes pregnant so she can remain in school.

YOU are making a difference for girls today and generations from now.

Thank YOU!

 

YOU can help YOUR students reach their dreams!

Building Up Big Dreams!

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!

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!
