To Nyaka’s grannies, you are a friend, a supporter, a cheerleader, and family….but most of all, YOU are a life saver!
Molly, 85, was caring for two grandsons in a crumbling house. The nearest town and resources were hours away. Her family was in a dire need for a new home. However, with no money, she had no hope.
Molly prayed for a miracle and she received one: YOU!
YOU provided her with a new home, a clean pit-latrine, and a dry kitchen. YOU provided these livable conditions.
To us, these changes may seem meager. But to Molly, they are monumental!
She wanted to thank you herself:“I have nothing I can offer to you sympathetic people for this great gift you’ve given to me but I’m praying for you from so many miles away ~ thank you.” –Molly
YOU have done something amazing! But, Molly is only one; there are many more grandmothers praying for your miracle. YOU can help them keep their grandchildren safe and fed.
If you haven’t yet made your year-end donation, please do so today.
Holiday Blessings to you and your family ~ From Molly, her family, and ours!
YOUR Nyaka grandmothers are so grateful for you.
Because of YOUR generosity, grandmothers like Salume have a home to live in.
For three years Salume lived in one room with her grandchildren because her home had collapsed. She had no privacy and couldn't invite visitors into her home. She was lonely and sad. You have changed this for her and her grandchildren.
Tomorrow is a special bonus day.
Starting at 12:00pm until the funds are gone, every penny you donate between $10.00 and $1,000.00 will be matched by Microsoft!
This is a great opportunity for your donation to go twice as far to help grandmothers like Salume!
YOU built her a new home where she and her family now live.
Salume says that she has no words with which to express her happiness but only prays that all the people who helped her will be blessed and live longer so that more desperate people like her can be rescued.
YOU can help other grandmothers like Salume tomorrow.
Because of YOUR investment, your grandmothers can have something to be grateful for this holiday season.
YOU can provide life-changing support for elderly grannies in Uganda.
Every donation brings us one step closer to ending poverty in Uganda so please give and give generously!
Thank YOU for your generous support of the Grandmother Project. YOUR donation gives grandmothers the chance to build up their community!
Let me tell you the story of one grandmother. She and her grandchildren lived in a home that needed repair. The roof was leaking and there was no door. The kids were always worried that animals could attack them during the night. But then, YOU provided a new home for her! Since she has received a new home the children are no longer scared at night and they sleep better. YOU made then feel safe!
Because of YOU, this family and many others are working towards a brighter future.

Grannies in Uganda work tirelessly for their grandchildren.
Especially the grandmothers who are raising the students of Nyaka and Kutamba Primary Schools.
And YOU are helping them out.
YOU have made it possible to break ground on Nyaka's own first Secondary and Vocational Training School!
YOU have turned the tide of poverty through your heroic actions.
A strong education is our greatest collective hope for eliminating extreme poverty and for our students to begin envisioning a life beyond the HIV/AIDS pandemic.
True to the holistic model you have invested and believed in over the past twelve years, the school will combine both traditional subjects together and special vocational technical subjects like tailoring and up and coming agricultural practices.
Attatched please find a letter written to you from our Executive Director, Jackson!
Dear Nyaka friends and family,
It’s a joy to report to you fresh from Uganda! Last month I spent time on the ground connecting with our grannies and students! Day after day, I was humbled by all the work YOU make possible.
A lot of my time was spent interacting with the Nyaka grannies, women who work hard every day to care for their grandchildren and make their communities a loving place to be. And it’s truly inspiring to watch them at work, raising strong students—students like Hilary.
Hilary is one of our pioneer secondary school students. He was one of the first students YOU helped support and was in the first graduating class in 2007.
I knew that Hilary wanted to be a doctor from his many thank you letters he has written to donors in the United States. And I was pleased to learn that he had just finished volunteering on his school break, working at the guest house, and is studying hard so that he can become a NEUROSURGEON.
YOU, dear donors, have made this all happen! And our grannies wanted us to let you know how grateful they really are!
With YOUR support, our grannies can create the homes that help foster the bright dreams of dedicated students like Hilary.
YOUR generous support makes these kind of success stories happen each and every day at Nyaka and Kutamba Primary Schools.
And we thank YOU!
Consider giving a gift today and help us continue the work of empowering Nyaka’s grannies and students!
