Summary

The Nyaka Grandmother Project offers practical life skills training, access to credit through a micro-finance program and income generating activities for the guardians of HIV/AIDS orphans. These unsung heroes are caring for upwards of 14 orphans during their twilight years without any social services like medical or child welfare.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

You and your love serve more than 7,000 grandmothers, who are the true unsung heroes of The Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project. Having tragically lost their own children to HIV/AIDS, they are now raising their orphaned grandchildren, our students. Many support up to fourteen children without social security, health care, retirement, child welfare, or basic housing. They parent without stable roofs, running water, bathrooms, or sanitary kitchens.

How will this project solve this problem?

The grandmothers who participate in The Nyaka Grandmother Project meet monthly to make goods, find comraderie with their peers, and to seek assistance for their ailments. Your support builds homes with stable, iron roofs, pit latrines, and sanitary kitchen for the very neediest. You provide case managers provide training in topics that include parenting skills, agriculture and health, and nutrition. You also provide microfinance loans, as well as home visits for ailing grannies.

Potential Long Term Impact

Grandmothers and orphans cannot succeed without one another. A child must be supported both at school and at home; this means assisting grandmothers to assist their grandchildren. You provide the grandmothers with tools and opportunities that allow them to create more stable home environments, and thriving communities.
