YOU have saved a little boy from the brink of death.
YOU have restored the most precious gift--a childhood.
Lucky shared with us that he is feeling much better because he is going to the monthly treatments YOU are providing! YOU are helping him stay strong and healthy!
Lucky is eating better! He is helping with household chores like fetching water and washing dishes! And he is playing with his friends!
Lucky is so grateful for YOU!
YOU have given Lucky the life-saving treatment he needs for a year. There are more children like Lucky who need YOUR support. To continue to support Lucky and children like him through Nyaka, we encourage you to give through our other projects for HIV/AIDS orphans on Global Giving:
Provide Education To AIDS Orphans In Rural Uganda
This project supports HIV/AIDS orphans in southwest Uganda. It operate two free primary schools for over 465 vulnerable children that provide meals, clothes, medical care, vocational training, community potable water, and a HIV/AIDS prevention program. Your love also provides scholarships to over 191 secondary school students. These scholarships cover their tuition, supplies, transportation, health care, and other services.
Educate Girls Orphaned By HIV/AIDS In Rural Uganda
If you want to support girls in education, this project focuses on the specific needs of girls. Orphaned girls face barriers to school that many boys don't. Orphaned girls are vulnerable to predators, more likely to drop out of school, more likely to have an unplanned pregnancy, and are more likely to marry before they're ready. Many girls miss days of school every year because they lack access to sanitary products and medicine. Nyaka pledges to support girls in making positive decisions so they can meet their goals.
We hope you will continue to support children like Lucky!
YOUR support this year has given all of your 650 children exactly what they need to reach their dreams.
YOU have given them free education, meals, healthcare, shoes, school uniforms, and school supplies. These are things that we may take for granted, but without these vital resources, YOUR students couldn't go to school.
Over this past year, YOU have helped Nyaka reach more students than ever before. YOU have built a new secondary and vocational school and YOU will be sending your first class of students to university in the fall.
If YOU had not stepped in, they would be trapped in poverty and even their children would be more likely to stay in poverty. They would be more vulnerable to predators and HIV/AIDS. YOUR girls would be more likely to marry or have children before they're ready.
YOUR generosity has changed the course of their lives. Because of YOU, they will be leaders in their communities when they grow up. They will be doctors, lawyers, politicians, business leaders...the possibilities are endless!
I hope YOU feel the profound magnitude of the gift YOU have given this year.
YOUR children wish you very Happy Holidays and a Wonderful New Year!
There's still time to make a gift before the end of the year!
Make a donation during the month of December to this project and YOU can help YOUR Nyaka students win one of 9 prizes! YOU could win up to $3,000 for YOUR children!
All YOU have to do is make a gift to this project before Midnight on December 31st! If Nyaka is one of the top 9 projects that raises the most money, YOUR children will WIN!
This has been an exciting year for girls and it's all because of YOU!
YOU gave 251 primary students and 97 secondary students free education, healthcare, sanitary pads, meals, shoes, school uniforms, and school supplies.
YOU graduated your first class of high school students who will be attending University!
Next year, 25 of YOUR girls will be in the first class to attend YOUR Nyaka Secondary and Vocational School next year.
YOU gave your girls vital health education to help them avoid unplanned pregnancies. YOU empowered them to stay in school. YOU reminded YOUR girls that they are valuable. YOU gave them the chance to explore their gifts and talents.
The stakes were high this year and YOU rose to meet the challenge. Many HIV/AIDS orphans in Uganda are still at home while their friends go to school. Girls are getting married and having babies of their own before they're ready. Without good nutrition, they are stunted and unhealthy.
Next year these numbers will grow as YOU reach more and more girls in Uganda!
YOUR girls and all of us here at Nyaka want to wish you a very Happy New Year!
