Give Today for Girls Like Brenda!

YOU are making a difference for girls like Brenda

Brenda lost her parents to HIV/AIDS when she was in Primary 3. After their death, her grandmother couldn't afford to send her and her two sisters to school. At first Brenda was relieved. She said it felt too difficult to go back after her parents died.

A year later she learned about Nyaka Primary School. She begged her older sister to take her to the school so that she could apply. Brenda was admitted into primary 4 and has been a Nyaka student ever since.

She is now in her senior six preparing to graduate from secondary school. She will be applying to university to study accounting.

Her story is impossible without YOU.

 

We need YOUR help to reach more girls like Brenda!

See lives YOU are changing--Watch this special video!

Every house YOU build saves lives. Hundreds of grandmothers and their grandchildren are safe and warm in new homes because of YOU. This is one of the most important things YOU do for YOUR Nyaka grandmothers.

When a grandmother knows that her grandchildren will be safe and warm at night, she is able to focus on building a better future for her family. Instead of paying for repairs on a crumbling house, she can put her money into a business or pay for her grandchildren's school fees. 

We've told you so many stories about the amazing impact that YOU have made for YOUR Nyaka grandmothers but today we want to show you. We made a special video all about the difference YOU are making for grandmothers through the housing program.

Enjoy and Happy Holidays from YOUR Nyaka Family!

YOU are saving lives! 

Children who do not get the nutrition they need suffer from stunted growth and learning problems. Many children die of malnourishment before they are even old enough to attend school.

The gifts YOU have made to Nyaka are providing life-saving meals to YOUR students. YOU are providing 4,630 meals to your primary students a week! On top of that, YOU are also feeding 187 secondary and vocational students!

These meals are a vital part of Nyaka's Nutrition Program and there are so many other ways YOU are making a difference for YOUR students today and for their futures. We made a special video all about the amazing ways YOU are impacting the lives of YOUR children in Uganda.
