The Hope YOU Gave Moreen!

Moreen Wants To Be A Doctor
Moreen Wants To Be A Doctor

YOU are changing lives for girls like Moreen!

Moreen's father died when she was seven years old. He had been sick for years and they didn't know that he had HIV/AIDS until after he had died. While grieving for the death of her father, Moreen and her five siblings learned that their mother also had the terrible illness. 

Fortunately, their mother was able to get treatment she needed, she was able to continue working, and she was able to pay for Moreen's older brother to get through high school. However, when it came time to send Moreen to high school her mother ran out of funds. 

Moreen dreamed of being a doctor but she would never be able to reach her dream if she couldn't go to high school. Then she discovered The Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project. Moreen applied and was given a scholarship to attend school. 

Because of YOU, Moreen is now in her last year of high school and she will be applying to University next year. 

The more opportunities YOU give to girls like Moreen, the faster things will change for girls in Uganda and throughout the region!

YOUR gift up to $1,000 will be matched starting at 9:00am EDT until 11:59pm EDT (or until the matching funds are gone)

YOU Empowered Maria!

Maria
Maria

YOU are empowering YOUR grandmothers to feed their families!

Maria is 67 years old and raising five orphaned grandchildren. The eldest is 14 and the youngest is four years old.

She joined her Granny Group in 2007. Her Granny Group sent three of their members to Trainer of Trainers to learn skills to bring back to their group. Because of this, Maria and the other grandmother in her group were given valuable training in many different areas.

Maria told us that she learned how to improve her farming techniques from her fellow grandmothers. Maria also received a garden hoe to help her tend to her fields. Maria said through a translator, "My grandchildren look healthy because they have enough food."

Thousands of grandmothers like Maria are better able to care for their grandchildren and keep them healthy because of what YOU have given them.

TODAY! YOU have the chance to get matched 30% to give YOUR grandmothers the chance to change the world!

YOUR gift up to $1000 will be matched starting at 9:00am EDT until 11:59pm EDT (or until the matching funds are gone)

Aniat Will Be Heard Because of YOU!

The secondary school is open and YOUR students are in the middle of their first trimester. They're working hard and they're excited for the great opportunity YOU have given them.

Aniat is one of the students YOU are giving this opportunity to. She wants to be a radio presenter when she graduates. She loves eating rice, playing net ball, and the thing she likes best about herself is the gap between her teeth. Without YOU, Aniat and her sibling wouldn't be able to go to school. Their mother would not be able to afford to send them. They would remain trapped in poverty, unable to escape.

This year 50 students including Aniat are attending YOUR Nyaka Vocational Secondary School. This school will be at full capacity in just a few years, educating 650 students.

There's still a lot of work to be done before the campus is complete! We need YOUR help to finish the construction. The boys are still sleeping in empty classrooms in the main academic building while they wait for their dormitory to be completed. The buildings that will house their science and vocational labs still need to be built as well. 

 

TODAY! YOU have the chance to get matched 30% to help us complete construction and give YOUR students the chance to change the world!

YOUR gift up to $1,000 will be matched starting at 9:00am EDT until 11:59pm EDT (or until the matching funds are gone)

We hope you will take advantage and make a gift today to help us complete the school!
