Greetings from Team Nyaka!

Meet Founder Twesigye Jackson Kaguri in this short video and hear about our girls and the challenge!

As you know, we need a large number of donors to give a small amount to win the challenge.  We are still far behind the leaders in donations.  Thank you so much for investing in our girls future...please ask 5 friends to make a $10 contribution today as well.

Partnerships have resulted in many thousands of dollars raised for girls like Olivia:

I am Ahabwe Olivia from Ishaka Secondary School. The Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project pays my fees to attend school.

I recently attended a health education camp that lasted two days and it was led by “Reach a Hand" - a nonprofit from Kampala. It was so colorful and we were with college students. They told us not to have sex at an early stage for we could get pregnant, contract diseases and/or HIV/AIDS. As a result, I made a decision not to have sex at early stage and instead concentrate on my books. They told us to have love for one another and respect each other as we listen to our elders. I thank Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project for the camp they organized for us.  I learned so much!

As we reach the 7 billion population mark it seems more urgent to help us help Olivia grow up, attend university, and become a teacher, doctor, or nurse before having children!  Please encourage 5 people in your life to do the same.  This might be your daughter, son, wife, husband, significant other, pastor, teacher, students, etc.

We need over 100 donations in the next few days to get into the top three finalists. 

Thank you for stretching your investment in our girls further by asking others to participate in this special challenge!


P.S. - Check out this cool Girl Effect video. Get inspired!
