Challenge

We work with communities living in poverty in southwest Uganda- many families are subsistence farmers living on $1-2 per day. There are large numbers of orphaned, abandoned or vulnerable children being cared for by grandmothers. We work holistically with communities to provide health, education and income generating programs to empower grandmothers and children to start small businesses, access medical care and education, access opportunities, plan for the future and improve family wellbeing.

Solution

Quality education is an essential step towards increased health, income generation, opportunity and choice. Your donation helps more than 700 orphaned or vulnerable children to access classroom supplies, library books, uniforms, nutritious food, clean water, medical care- as well as high quality tuition, extra curricular activities, counselling and other support.

Long-Term Impact

Early cohorts of Nyaka students have now graduated and gone on to study at universities in Uganda and across the world. Your support has helped to nurture a generation of journalists, doctors and lawyers who are committed to supporting their communities and making the world a better place!
