Take a SHOT at saving lives

You provide access to healthcare services in your community year-round. You provide HIV/AIDS testing, immunizations, medicine, dental services, family planning, and much more. Providing health care services allows Nyaka children to grow and learn in a healthy environment. Could you imagine being sick, but not having access to healthcare to get better? You allow students and grandmothers to receive the medical help they need quickly at no cost to them.

Before you sent nurses into your schools to give immunization shots to students, many students were getting sick and missing days of school. Those immunizations resulted in students getting sick less and missing fewer days of school. Every year students and their guardians are tested for HIV, helping us to catch the virus early. When a child or grandmother tests positive, you allow them to receive treatment. Treatment to helps to slow down or stop HIV from progressing into AIDS and decreases the likeliness that they’ll spread it to others.

By continuing to providing healthcare, YOU are extending the lives of members in the community. Thank you!

Thanks to you, the Desire Farm is growing!

Victor the Calf

Desire Farm staff welcomed a newborn calf named Victor last week. The staff named him Victor to honor the Victors Film created earlier this year. As Victor grows, he will be used to teach the community how to properly care for a calf and other cow essentials. Since creating the Desire Farm, it’s become a beacon of hope for YOUR community. The Desire Farm is so important because it allows children, grandmothers, and local farmers to go there and learn farming techniques. Many grandmothers use the Desire Farm to learn how to grow food for their families and businesses.

Can you imagine going to school hungry because your family can’t afford food? This was an unfortunate situation for many families in your community that resulted in students going to school hungry. Until the Desire Farm! Your farm provides food for more than 600 orphaned and vulnerable children who attend Nyaka Schools.

Thank you for feeding students and educating the community!

Robotics rules the world

Students in the robotics club

In December, the Nyaka Robotics Club will be hosting its second robotics camp. Your gifts have allowed students the opportunity of exploring different parts of science in the Nyaka Robotics Club. This also allows students in your schools the chance to learn more about the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) field. The Nyaka Robotics Club teaches students many great skills including electrical wiring and computer programing. This club is important to the education to Nyaka students and gives them a leg up on students at other schools. In just a couple of years, more than 80% of future jobs in Uganda and worldwide will require some form of STEM education. The Nyaka Robotics Club prepares students for their future’s in science.


Because of your compassion, students can use their passion for STEM to help their community. Thank You! ­
