After losing both parents, Rodger depended on his grandparents for everything. Being one of seven children, Rodger lost hope of ever attending school with his friends, because he feared his grandparents would not be able to pay for school fees, uniforms and other scholastics materials. Rodger’s grandfather learned about Nyaka schools from the local council chairman who told him that Kutamba Primary School was accepting new students and that neither students nor their guardians pay school fees. Rodger is now in the Primary three class and has gratefully benefited from his chance to receive an education: “... I am now able to read simple words on my own, write them and do some simple calculations. I am working hard to become a teacher when I grow up. I thank Kutamba for sponsoring me.”
Students like Rodger are the reason why Nyaka exists and have done the work of creating programs to change lives. Rodger is a testament to the enormous impact our work has made on children over the past two decades.
