YOU are changing lives for girls like Justine!

YOUR 2013 primary and secondary school graduates
YOUR 2013 primary and secondary school graduates

We join you in congratulating your Nyaka class of 2013!

78 students graduated from primary school and secondary school. Thanks to YOUR hard work and donations this was possible!

One of our graduates, Justine, has overcome very difficult and painful obstacles to achieve this accomplishment.

When Justine was in primary school, her dress caught on fire while she was lighting a lamp. Justine suffered through terrible burns on her face, arms, back, and chest.

Justine’s scars made her skin so tight, that she had trouble smiling and closing her eyelids. Through the support of people like YOU and the generous donation of The Shriner Hospital for Children in Boston, she was able to get the medical care she needed to keep her healthy and in school.

YOU have given Justine so much through your support and, because of YOU, Justine is standing proudly beside her peers as a strong woman ready to make an impact for her community.

There are more girls like Justine who are ready to change the world.

YOU are ensuring that they will.

Look at everything YOU did in 2013!

Join us in congratulating Nyaka’s class of 2013! 78 students graduated from primary or secondary school. Thanks to YOUR hard work and donations this was possible!

YOU began the creation of a the new Nyaka Secondary and Vocational School. This will provide a learning environment for students for generations to come and employment for the local community.

YOU provided healthcare, helping students get the medicines and vaccinations that they need to stay healthy. YOU immunized 36 girls in P.4 and P.5 against HPV. YOU also helped bring a dental camp to the Nyaka schools and villages, where the Doctors attended to over 500 patients.

And on top of all of this, YOU continue to provide full-time education for over 650 students at the primary and secondary level!

YOU are changing lives so they can change their community! Keep up the amazing work. The students and grannies send tons and tons of love.

Get Matched!

Blue Lupin Library

YOUR $10 will provide school supplies for a student entering secondary school. And with this doubling, it will provide two students with supplies! Over the course of a year YOU will have provided twenty-four secondary school students! Imagine that!

Hear ye! Hear ye!
This is important for all to see!
From now ‘till years end,
Exists this awesome trend:
Make a recurring donation, and magically, before your eyes,
Watch it double! By an anonymous donor so nice. 
Your $10 a month will become twenty!
And you’ll be providing plenty!

Recently YOU built an amazing resource: The Blue Lupin Library! Look at how much the students are enjoying and how much they are learning from YOUR creation!

You may never meet the students and grannies whom you've supported and loved from a far, but please know they love you and are grateful for you!

So, give a little and have double the impact! And see how many lives YOU change then!
