Meet Daphine. 

She is one of the 349 girls YOU are educating this year. 

Daphine was only 3 years old when she lost her parents. She is fortunate to have a grandmother who is raising her and her siblings. She was six years old when she entered Nyaka school as a nursery student and this year she will be graduating from primary 7.

Because of YOU, she will be among the first students to attend the Nyaka Secondary and Vocational School next year. She won't have to go to a school far away from her family and her support system. She'll be able to stay at home and help her aging grandmother. She will be able to be a mentor to her younger siblings and encourage them to stay in school!

YOUR support means so much to Daphine. If it was not for YOUR support, girls like Daphine would be in a vulnerable position. Girls orphaned by HIV/AIDS are at greater risk of human trafficking, unplanned pregnancy, contracting HIV/AIDS, and early marriage.

YOU are helping Daphine defy the odds! 

She wants to grow up to be a bank manager. And she wants to help other children like her who lost their parents. 

Thanks to YOU, Daphine is getting the tools to do just what she wants.

 

YOU can help more girls like Daphine!

Give today starting at 9:00am EST (until 11:59pm EST or funds run out)

and your donation will be matched 30%!

YOU are making sure all girls can get the education they deserve!

YOU have been providing free education to girls orphaned by HIV/AIDS through Nyaka's two primary schools and YOU have sponsored their education at secondary and vocational schools across the region.

The chance to get an education is priceless but many girls must sacrfice time with their loved ones to attend boarding schools miles away from home and their support network.

In just a few months, YOUR Secondary students will be able to attend the NEW Nyaka Secondary School that YOU are building! YOU are building it up so quickly! Look at the new roof on the main school building!

YOU have made this secondary school possible through YOUR support.

Thank YOU

I am so amazed by YOU!

YOU take the time to invest in girls like Rabecca!

She may look like a normal, happy, girl but her life has been transformed by YOU!

Like all of her classmates, Rabecca has lost loved ones to HIV/AIDS. She had no hope of going to school and no chance to dream.

Because of YOU, Rabecca is a bright, young primary 3 student with a wonderful talent for drawing! and she is so grateful for the gift YOU have given her! 

We hope you will join us today to make sure every little girl like Rabecca can go to school!

Today at 12:00pm Microsoft will match your donations!

50% for all one-time donations and

100% for all recurring donations!

Make your gift after 12:00pm but be sure to be quick! Matching funds go very fast!

Thank you from Rabecca and all of the little girls YOU are saving!

YOU are making a HUGE IMPACT for girls like Diphone!

Diphone is a normal 13-year-old girl beginning her last year of primary school. She is studying hard because one day she is going to be a nurse.

When she isn't learning in school or helping at home to care for her four siblings, she loves to go swimming and play with her friends.

Without YOU, this would not be Diphone's life.

Like so many other girls, she would be vulnerable to early marriage. She would have a much higher risk of sexual assault and exploitation. She would be much more likely to contract HIV/AIDS or have an unplanned pregnancy.

YOU have given Diphone and 300 girls like her a very precious gift.

Because of YOU, Diphone will be able to marry when she is ready. She will have children when she is ready. And she will be able to pursue her dreams!

Wednesday you have the chance to help more girls like Diphone!

Global Giving will be offering matches for donations over $10!

50% for one-time donations and

100% for recurring donations! 

we hope you will join us Wednesday at 12:00pm to make your gift!

YOU are amazing.

YOU are giving YOUR girls to tools they need to reach their dreams!

Meet Costance! She is 12-years-old and a primary 3 student at Kutamba.

She lives in the village of Kirimbe with her mother and 5 other siblings.

YOU provide her and her family with the gift of choice! When she grows up she wants to be a teacher and the President. Why? Because she wants to look after her country. You are giving the tools so she can!

YOU inspire Costance. YOU give her books, meals, clean water, school supplies, an education and so much more, like bananas (her favorite food)! Costance wants to help her whole country just like YOU are helping her.

YOU should be proud. Costance loves to learn! In fact, it is her favorite part of school. She just can’t wait to progress to primary 4. It’s truly awe-inspiring to see!

So, meet future President Costance! She is going to do great things one day.

And it is all thanks to YOU!
