You are welcome, our visitors.

The young ladies of Nyaka studying hard!
The young ladies of Nyaka studying hard!

You are a gift to the little girls of Nyaka and Kutamba.

In a global education system where girls are often overlooked, you are the difference.

You don't just believe that women have a right to an education, you act.  Thank you!

You have gone out of your way to provide a FREE quality education to the 65% of our students who are young girls.

On October 17th, starting at 12:01 ET, you can do 30% more with your generosity.

But first, your project report!

If you were to walk through the doorway of the P.4 class at Kutamba Primary School every student would shoot up from their desk and welcome you.

"You are welcome, our visitors."

They would declare,

"Discipline first. Academics second."

They would answer the question,


with a hearty, "No!"

Your students come to school every day because you keep the doors open, the meals coming and the water clean.  You believe in them and therefore, they believe in themselves because you have made them a priority year after year.

Are you curious about what your students have been studying? Click here to take a peek into the classroom by reading progress reports from the teachers. You are making sure that your students have incredible opportunities to brighten their future.

Next year, as sixty students move up to secondary school, we will accept sixty more students into preschool!

So today, celebrate your personal fight against poverty by doing three things.

  1. Give yourself a pat on the back.  You deserve it.
  2. Sign up to give $10 monthly - enough to provide one student with the school supplies they need.
  3. Invite 30 friends to join you by sharing on Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr. Blog about it, why don't cha?

Your actions today will continue your legacy of generosity in the lives of these future leaders.
