She is one of the girls that YOU support at Kutamba Primary School. She is a nursery student but she already knows what she wants to be when she grows up, a Nurse! That might change between now and graduation day but what will never change is the opportunity YOU have given her to reach her dream.
Without YOU, Deniz would not be thinking about becoming a nurse at all. She would be fetching water and helping her grandmother cook. She would probably be married and have children before she reached eighteen. She would be more vulnerable to sexual predators and HIV/AIDS.
Because of YOUR support, Deniz can dream about her future. She will have the ability to make her own decisions. If she chooses to get married and have children it will be in her time and because she wants to.
We know Deniz and all of the girls whose lives YOU are investing in will do great things.
Thank YOU for empowering YOUR students so they can show the world what girls can do!
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!

We told you last week about all the obstacles girls in Uganda are facing: teen pregnancy, sexual assault, HIV/AIDS, child marriage, lack of access to feminine hygiene supplies, and lack of support to attend school. All of these barriers to success can feel insurmountable.
But, thanks to YOU, more girls every year have the opportunity to defy the odds.
Girls attending YOUR schools are excelling academically. They are staying in school longer than their peers and even going to University! They are waiting until they're ready to get married and have children.
The sanitary napkins, health information, and free education that YOU provide make all of this possible!
Thanks to YOU, they are changing expectations for girls in Uganda! Future girls in their communities will have more choices and will have more tools available to them to reach their dreams!
YOU are making equality for girls in Uganda a reality!
Help YOUR girls reach their dreams! Starting Right Now
