Challenge

Nyaka works with communities living in poverty in southwest Uganda- where many families are subsistence farmers living on $1-2 per day. Many orphaned, abandoned, or vulnerable children are left in the care of struggling grandmothers. We work holistically to provide health, education, and income-generating programs to empower grandmothers to start small businesses, access medical care, access micro-loans and education, access, provide training in business knowledge and vocational skills.

Solution

Quality education is key to a brighter future and essential to increased health, income generation, opportunity and choice. Your donation helps more than 800 orphaned or vulnerable children to access classroom supplies, library books, uniforms, nutritious food, clean water, medical care- as well as high quality tuition, extracurricular activities, counseling 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. Through your support, these students have not only received an education but have been empowered to become productive citizens in their families and communities. Today they stand as journalists, doctors, and lawyers c supporting their communities and making the world a better place!
