2 New Labs + 1 New Graduate=BIG GRATITUDE!

You have made a huge impact for students like Steven!

You sent him to school. You put a pencil in his hand. And you gave him the opportunity to discover what he wanted to be. 

This month Steven graduated from his vocational program in construction! 

It is so fitting that he will be a builder because, thanks to you, he is part of the generation of youth who will build up their community.

It was amazing builders like Steven who made your biology and computer labs at the Nyaka Vocational Secondary School a reality. Now your students who want to pursue science, engineering, technology, and math have the tools they need to succeed! Your biology lab is like no other lab in the entire region. Your computer lab will give your students access to the world!

Building up a community starts will building up its youth. Your students have big challenges to face as they work to change their community. They have to overcome poverty, lack of resources, and corruption. Gratefully, you are preparing them to overcome these obstacles. You are shaping and empowering them to be the leaders who will come up with creative solutions. It will not be an easy road towards change but your students are ready to do it.

Because of you, Steven and all of your students will be builders. 

Thank you!

Ellina's life is changed--Thank you!

You are empowering grandmothers to be entrepreneurs!

Ellina is a 62-year-old grandmother taking care of her grandchild, David. She owns a small shop where she sells handcrafts she's made and other products like egg plants, yellow bananas, avocadoes, pineapples, and sugar canes from her own gardens. Because Ellina is an amazing multitasker, she also raises and sells pigs. 

She's received a loan of 200,000 Ugandan Shillings (about $60 USD) to help her with these businesses and now she makes about 70,000 Ugandan Shillings ($21 USD) every month. Because of her success, she is able to pay David's school fees, buy household items, take care of her personal needs, and pay for medical care. 

Another loan will help her businesses grow even more! She is applying for another loan of 200,000 Uganda Shillings so she can build a pig sty and a secure storage building for the products she sells in her stores.

Ellina is a hardworking entrepreneur. Because of your support, she is empowered to escape poverty.

Thank you!

Did you ever think a biology lab would bring a tear to your eye?

Did you ever think a biology lab would bring a tear to your eye?

As you look at these pictures of the two labs you've completed at NVSS, I hope you feel the full weight of what you have made possible. It isn't just that these two labs you've built are beautiful. It is what they stand for. This school that you're building is a symbol of hope to your students and the entire community. And these labs represent a key promise that is the foundation of this hope: opportunity.

Imagine for a moment what it is like to live in rural Uganda. Where your students live there is no biology lab like this one. Not one. There isn't a biology lab like this in the entire region! Secondary and vocational schools don't have computer labs--much less with internet!

Your students are going to have academic opportunities that do not exist in most of Uganda. They are going to be learning skills and testing concepts that will build up their knowledge and prepare them to excel in university. 

Your students have this precious gift because of your compassion.

Thank you for making a difference!
