Meet Hellen!

Meet Hellen!
Meet Hellen!

Meet Hellen. She is 9 years old and has 5 siblings. She lives with her uncle in the village of Nyarutojo. YOU have given her so much more than education and health. YOU have given her a life, a world; YOU have given her hope! Hope for a better future where she can then give hope to others. She enjoys learning and wants to be a nurse when she grows up. 

Helen is a dedicated student in the primary 3 class of Nyaka School. Don’t be afraid to get to know her and her classmates! She loves to eat rice and enjoys cooking after school. Her favorite activity is to play netball. When she grows up she wants to be nurse so that she can help treat those who are ill.

Think of all YOU have done for Hellen with your continued support of Nyaka. YOU are so amazing!

YOU are helping girls like Daphine!

Daphine
Daphine

Meet Daphine. 

She is one of the 349 girls YOU are educating this year. 

Daphine was only 3 years old when she lost her parents. She is fortunate to have a grandmother who is raising her and her siblings. She was six years old when she entered Nyaka school as a nursery student and this year she will be graduating from primary 7.

Because of YOU, she will be among the first students to attend the Nyaka Secondary and Vocational School next year. She won't have to go to a school far away from her family and her support system. She'll be able to stay at home and help her aging grandmother. She will be able to be a mentor to her younger siblings and encourage them to stay in school!

YOUR support means so much to Daphine. If it was not for YOUR support, girls like Daphine would be in a vulnerable position. Girls orphaned by HIV/AIDS are at greater risk of human trafficking, unplanned pregnancy, contracting HIV/AIDS, and early marriage.

YOU are helping Daphine defy the odds! 

She wants to grow up to be a bank manager. And she wants to help other children like her who lost their parents. 

Thanks to YOU, Daphine is getting the tools to do just what she wants.

 

YOU can help more girls like Daphine!

Give today starting at 9:00am EST (until 11:59pm EST or funds run out)

and your donation will be matched 30%!

YOU are a Community Builder!

Oliva
Oliva

YOU are empowering YOUR grandmothers!

YOUR Granny Groups were developed to give the women YOU are serving through the Nyaka Grandmother Project a voice.

The Granny Groups vote to decide how micro-finance funds should be distributed. They decide as a group which grandmothers are most in need of a new home, kitchen, or pit latrine. Trainings are conducted by elected leaders.

The goal of the Grandmother Project is never to tell YOUR grandmothers what they need. They tell the project what they need and everyone works on solutions together to make positive changes in the community. 

Meet Oliva. She is one of the women YOU are empowering through your support. At the age of 64, her fellow granny group members chose her to be the Sub County Coordinator. She is a very busy woman, overseeing and training four different Granny Groups in her area.

Because of YOU, Oliva has the training and know how to teach her fellow Granny Group members new vocational skills, how to develop businesses, nutrition and health information, and many other important skills.

By raising up leaders from within the community and nurturing their leadership skills, YOU are ensuring that the positive changes YOU are making possible will last. 

YOU are a community builder! 

 

Want to see more women become community leaders like Oliva?

YOU can support your grandmothers by making your donation this Today at 9:00am (EST)

Global Giving will match your gift by 30%!

If we get the most donors, YOUR grandmothers will get $1,000!
