Summary

The Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project (NAOP) is working to free orphans from the cycle of poverty by providing a high-quality, free education, both formal and informal, to children who have been orphaned due to HIV/AIDS in order to counteract pervasive hunger, poverty, and systemic deprivation. Your donations will help us build and operate a secondary and vocational school for these children in the remote village of Nyakagyezi, Uganda.

Challenge

Nyaka currently educates students in our two primary schools and then sponsors students to attend boarding secondary and vocational schools in the region. This is more expensive, which limits the amount of students we can educate. It is also more stressful for families who often rely on their older children to help with childcare, household chores, and farming. We have also found that our students are suffering academically and socially once they leave Nyaka's support network.

Solution

If our students can stay at home, they can help their elderly grandmothers with household chores and remain surrounded by the positive influence of their family and the Nyaka team. Providing education directly to our students will be less expensive. With the extra money, we will be able to educate more children and offer more services! The students will benefit from a school system specifically designed to meet their needs as HIV/AIDS orphans, which is crucial to their success.

Long-Term Impact

The secondary and vocational school will help the local economy by providing more jobs. The students will have better grades and more will graduate.
