Nyaka students are back in class for their final term! You have provided students with the essentials they need to study hard for their final exams coming up in just a couple of months. You are providing students with important school supplies.

Before your generous support, many students were forced to attend school without things we take for granted like pencils and paper. Pencil and paper are necessary to do take notes, do homework, and to remember information. Even more female students were forced to miss school because of a lack of personal hygiene items. Can you imagine missing school because you can’t maintain your personal hygiene? In Uganda, it’s common for female students to miss school due to a lack of something so simple such as feminine products. Without them, many are forced to stay home and miss valuable lessons at school.

Because of you, all of our students were able to open school supplies full of everything they need for the school year including feminine products, notebooks, pens, tissue, and much more. Thank you!

You provided Jolly with a sustainable life

58-year-old Jolly lives with her 12-year-old grandchild in Rutoma village. Soon after giving birth, Jolly’s daughter left to find work but never returned. Many grannies in situations like Jolly benefits from the funds given to their Granny Groups. Jolly was able to borrow a microloan of $95. During a Granny Group meeting, Grandmothers were encouraged to diversify their business and incomes. Right then Jolly decided to stop depending solely on farming and decided to sell her sorghum (source of grain and feed for livestock) allowing her to save $108. Jolly added her savings to the microloan and established a small retail shop. Her store sells an assortment of goods like soft drinks, soap, toilet papers, tomatoes, onions, and more. Jolly believes maximizing her time is the best way to maximize revenue, so while she’s waiting for customers she weaves baskets, which she also sells at her store.

Her business is expanding steadily. Jolly is able to meet all her family’s basic needs, pay school fees for her grandchild and service her group loan on time. Jolly says that that funds you provide have helped her to live a sustainable life. Not only have you greatly improved Jolly and her grandchild’s economic standards of living, but you have also ensured they have enough food even in times of food crisis.

You made Kara fearless

Kara was only 10-years-old when her mother left her at home to cook dinner alone. While cooking, an unfamiliar man approached her asking questions. Kara sweetly answered his question not thinking much about it. He persuaded Kara to follow him into the woods by saying he’d give her money for more food. Kara being an innocent child followed him. After reaching a distance from her house, he began to rape her. She began to cry in pain, but he threatened to kill her if she continued to cry. After Kara’s assault, her family searched for ways to find justice. You gave Kara and her family the justice they were looking for when they found EDJA. The perpetrator was caught by EDJA’s legal team and brought to the police. The community was overjoyed to have him put behind bars. He not only sexual assaulted Kara but many other girls in her community, but unlike Kara, they kept quiet about their attacks.

You guided Kara towards healing. After her attack, Kara was able to receive medical treatment and counseling. She can now move forward and go to school without fear.
