YOU have made their computer lab possible!

The computer lab at Nyaka Vocational Secondary School (NVSS) is now 100% complete thanks to you! 

This amazing lab will increase learning opportunities by helping students become computer literate and will also give them access to the world that they never thought would be possible.  Your students will now be able to compete better with other students for placements in higher institutions of learning.  Computer literacy will also increase the career opportunities that will be available to them after school.

Teachers and students have been provided training on all of the new computer equipment and were eager to begin utilizing the awesome new lab!  This modern computer lab sets the pace for NVSS to become the central hub for STEM (Science Technology Engineering Math) in the community.  YOU have made that happen!

Thank you for giving your students access to the world and creating even MORE opportunities than they ever thought possible!

Thank you for preventing hunger in your schools!

YOU are changing your student’s futures by preventing hunger! 

Many children leave their home early in the morning to make the long walk to school without any breakfast at all.  They get to school and can’t concentrate, or sometimes even fall asleep during class, because they are hungry.  Thanks to you, your children are provided nutritious meals at school!  For some children, these are the only meals they have all day. 

You give them a breakfast of porridge and a snack AND provide them with lunch which differs daily and can include beans, peas, groundnuts, meat, posho, vegetables, rice, matooke (green bananas), sweet potatoes, and Irish potatoes.  Also, the meals at Nyaka Primary School include eggs from the Desire farm!  

Your student’s school performance is no longer affected by their hunger.  Their stomachs are full now and they can concentrate in class.  You are giving them the opportunity not only to be healthy and grow up strong, but the opportunity to excel in school and not be affected by hunger! 

Thank you for giving YOUR students healthy meals at school!

Thank you for giving YOUR girls the education they need to have the futures they deserve! 

The girls you are helping will never be able to put into words how thankful they are for the love and support you show them.  You are giving them the priceless gift of an education.  They are going to grow up to be successful, independent, intelligent women because of you!

A significant tool to enhance their educational experience is the new computer lab that they now have access to, thanks to you.  The computer lab will give girls the computer skills and knowledge that are needed to succeed in the digital world we live in. 

You have also given them more access to books by providing additional e-readers for them.  Your girls now have access to over 7,500 books all because you want to help educate them and see them succeed!  The new e-readers exposes them to more literature and helps them to further their understanding of technology.  These girls are getting an education that they could only dream about before.  Their futures are filled with endless possibilities because you believe in them.

Thank you very much for your love and generosity you give these girls!
