YOU are their shelter!

Girls
Girls' Dormitory with new roof!

We don't tell you enough...YOU are amazing! 

YOU have given your children the food, clean water, free healthcare, and education that they have been craving!

And what's even better? 

Now you are building them a brand new secondary school!

Currently, Nyaka and Kutamba primary students must apply to secondary schools in the region to continue their education. They have to live far from home and their support systems. Nyaka provides students with free tutoring, access to internet, and a case manager to help them address problems. Their secondary schools do not provide many of these added supports. Most staff at their secondary schools do not have the understanding of their experiences to meet their unique needs.

YOUR 191 children have worked so hard to graduate from primary school. Now they can also receive a guaranteed quality secondary education. This will mean that they can stay closer to home and get the educational supports they need to be successful students!

YOU have already put a roof on the secondary school's main building. Today we are sending you a first look at the brand new roof on the Girls' dormitory! 

Thanks to YOU, we are making progress to opening our doors for students at the beginning of the school year in February 2015!

Keep up the great work!

 

We also want to thank you for your support during this last Bonus Day!

YOU raised $3,155 for YOUR children! THANK YOU!

YOU are opening doors for your children!

He loves it SO MUCH that, when he grows up, he wants to be an accountant.

One day he wants to use his success to help other orphans like YOU have helped him.

If it hadn’t been for YOU, Shallon wouldn't have learned that he loves math and he wouldn't know that he could be an accountant when he grows up.

Shallon is just one of the 656 children who are in school because of YOU!

Each child YOU have rescued has a story just like Shallon’s.

Thank you for loving Shallon and all of YOUR children in Uganda.

Meet Emmanuel!

Meet Emmanuel!
Meet Emmanuel!

Meets Emmanuel! He is 14-years-old. He has 2 siblings and lives in the village of Rugazi. YOU have given him not only dreams but also the values of hard work and a strong character.

Emmanuel is a determined primary 7 student at Kutamba School and strives to be helpful.

This drive makes him want to be a doctor when he grown up. His biggest desire is to treat those who need help. In order to do this, he has been working hard in school to get the best grades in the class.

Emmanuel values family and home as well. He works hard after school to collect firewood for heat and cooking and he loves to eat fish. For fun, he enjoys playing fütbol.

Think of all YOU have done for Emmanuel with your continued support of Nyaka. YOU are so amazing!

Soon you'll have the opportunity to help even more children just like Emmanuel!

Join us June 25th for a Youth Spark match day that will give 100% matching to YOUR nyaka children.

  • Matching is applied at 100% for every donation from $10 up to $1,000 per donor per project/microproject until matching funds run out.
  • The project or microproject that raises the most funds on Bonus Day will receive an additional $2,500.
  • The project or microproject that has the most unique donors on Microsoft YouthSpark's Bonus Day will receive an additional $2,500.

We hope you will join us and help YOUR children get the food, clothing, and education they need to be happy and healthy!
