Meet Ronald! He is a 6-year-old nursery student at Kutamba Primary School. He loves to dance, and you can tell by his adorable smile that he loves to laugh.
Because of YOU, Ronald has everything he needs to succeed. He has free education, books, healthcare, clean water, a school uniform (with shoes!), and now he has one more thing...
He has a secondary school to go to near his home! The Nyaka Vocational Secondary School just celebrated its official opening on July 17th, 2015.
Thanks to help from wonderful supporters like YOU, the school will be fully built and at full capacity years before Ronald will walk through those halls!
We've shared some photos of this wonderful event below. YOU can see more great photos on our Facebook page!
Thank YOU for making a difference for Ronald and all of YOUR students in Uganda.
YOUR support is vital to YOUR students success!
Last week we talked about all of the wonderful things YOU provide to YOUR students in Uganda: two hot meals a day, school uniforms and new shoes, medicine, and all of their school supplies.
But what do these things really do for YOUR students?
Thanks to YOUR support, YOUR students are staying in school longer. YOUR girls are delaying marriage and children until they're ready. And YOUR students are excelling academically above their peers across Uganda.
Last December, YOUR primary seven students took their PLE exams. These are national exams that determine which students will be allowed to go on to secondary or vocational school. The test is challenging and many students in Uganda fail. In fact, 12% of students in all of Uganda didn't pass the exams at all.
The story was very different for YOUR students at Nyaka and Kutamba Primary School.
100% of YOUR primary seven students passed their exams last year and 86% earned a B or higher!
YOUR love and compassion made that possible!

YOU are inspiring students to dream!
YOU have done so much to help YOUR students in Uganda.
Right now 697 HIV/AIDS Orphans are in school because of YOU.
They have everything they need to succeed: two hot meals a day, school uniforms and new shoes, medicine, and all of their school supplies.
This year has brought some pretty big firsts! Nyaka's third school, the Nyaka Vocational Secondary School, was opened in February thanks to YOUR support and YOUR pioneer students are headed off to University in the fall.
YOUR achievements this year will only grow. We expect YOUR students to continue to excel and reach their dreams. But the power of YOUR impact in Uganda is stronger than you realize.
Every time a student goes to University, all of the younger students see what is possible. Opening the door for just one student, gives every student the hope that THEY could one day achieve their dream too. Suddenly becoming a doctor or a lawyer doesn't seem so unattainable.
In the years to come, we cannot wait to see what more of YOUR students will do. What dreams they will chase and the amazing ways they will breathe life back into their community.
When you read those stories only a few years from now YOU will know that
YOU made all of this possible
because YOU chose to invest in their dreams.
YOU can help YOUR students reach their dreams!

YOUR 14 pioneer students who just graduated from high school last December. Over the last few months since graduation, 12 of YOUR graduates have been filling out applications and waiting anxiously to see if they got into University.
And the results have started coming in...
We are so excited to tell you that, Shirah, one of YOUR top students, just got her acceptance letter from Vancouver Island University! She will be attending VIU on a FULL scholarship!
Every statistic about Uganda's HIV/AIDS orphans says that Shirah and her classmates should never have succeeded.
Thanks to YOUR LOVE, Shirah and many other HIV/AIDS orphans are obliterating the barriers!
There are many more children like Shirah--brilliant children who are being kept in poverty because they don't have the opportunity to go to school. Help us change their stories like YOU have done for so many other children!

Janitah is one of YOUR nursery students at Kutamba Primary School.
Her favorite color is blue and she loves to sing. But most of all she loves to go to school.
Every day she wakes up in the morning, puts on the shoes and the pretty green school uniform YOU bought her and begins her long walk to school.
As she walks to school, carrying the books YOU gave her, she dreams about her future.
She dreams of walking at her high school graduation just like your pioneer students did in December. Seeing them succeed gives her hope!
In just 13 years, Janitah will have graduated from high school and will be ready to pursue her dream of becoming a nurse.
She'll never forget the generosity and love YOU have shown her.
We need YOU to help Janitah and her classmates reach their dreams!
