Nyaka Girl Power Video!

Nyaka Girls Celebrating

As you may recall, the Girl Effect Challenge is in its final week.  While we are so grateful to you for your support to date, we have one final request for your help.

If you enjoy this video as much as we think you will...would you ask 3 of your friends to watch it too?

If every person who has given to The Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project through GlobalGiving gets 3 people to invest in our girls, we can win the Girl Effect Challenge!  Just remember! They have to give to our "Girl Effect" project specifically.

The $6,000 you have helped us to raise will multiply 4,5, possibly even 6 times over 2012.

Best part?  After this week, you don't have to do a thing to make that happen.

Just sit back and enjoy a quarterly progress report about our students like you do now.

We can do this in the next few days, but we really do need your help now.

The very best is yet to come!

Girls!

As you may recall, the Girl Effect Challenge is in its final week for our sister project that helps the grandchildren of these courageous grandmothers.  While we are so grateful to you for your support to date, we have one final request for your help.

If you enjoy this video as much as we think you will...would you ask 3 of your friends to watch it too?

If every person who has given to The Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project through GlobalGiving far gets 3 people to invest in our girls, we can win the Girl Effect Challenge!

The $6,000 you have helped us to raise will multiply 4,5, possibly even 6 times over 2012.

Best part?  After this week, you don't have to do a thing to make that happen.

Just sit back and enjoy a quarterly progress report about our students and their grandmothers like you do now.

We can do this in the next few days, but we really do need your help now.

The very best is yet to come!

Meet the Girls!

Greetings from Team Nyaka!

Meet Founder Twesigye Jackson Kaguri in this short video and hear about our girls and the challenge!

As you know, we need a large number of donors to give a small amount to win the challenge.  We are still far behind the leaders in donations.  Thank you so much for investing in our girls future...please ask 5 friends to make a $10 contribution today as well.

Partnerships have resulted in many thousands of dollars raised for girls like Olivia:

I am Ahabwe Olivia from Ishaka Secondary School. The Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project pays my fees to attend school.

I recently attended a health education camp that lasted two days and it was led by “Reach a Hand" - a nonprofit from Kampala. It was so colorful and we were with college students. They told us not to have sex at an early stage for we could get pregnant, contract diseases and/or HIV/AIDS. As a result, I made a decision not to have sex at early stage and instead concentrate on my books. They told us to have love for one another and respect each other as we listen to our elders. I thank Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project for the camp they organized for us.  I learned so much!

As we reach the 7 billion population mark it seems more urgent to help us help Olivia grow up, attend university, and become a teacher, doctor, or nurse before having children!  Please encourage 5 people in your life to do the same.  This might be your daughter, son, wife, husband, significant other, pastor, teacher, students, etc.

We need over 100 donations in the next few days to get into the top three finalists. 

Thank you for stretching your investment in our girls further by asking others to participate in this special challenge!
