Bright Futures for Girls in Uganda!

Dear Nyaka Friends and Family,

Thank YOU for your generous support of the Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project. Because of YOU, girls in the Nyaka and Kutamba Primary Schools are on their way to bright futures in their communities.

Thank you,

Jackson Kaguri

Executive Director of the Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project

“The news channels bombard us with tragic events daily. Car wrecks. Fires. Floods. Famine. Mass shootings. Maybe only one out of 20 stories is uplifting and inspirational. After the mass shooting at the naval yard in Washington, D.C. and the attack at the mall in Kenya, even I began to wonder if there was no goodness left in the world. But only for a moment. For I have witnessed the generosity of thousands, and have seen greatness in the human spirit.” - See more at: http://nyakaproject.blogspot.com/2013/10/bonus-day.html#sthash.zn6bIpwA.dpuf
