You've got the power!

Justine and her free spirited personality
Justine and her free spirited personality

Over the past six weeks, we’ve shared some of our most inspirational stories with you in our Story-A-Week storytelling series.

It has been a great honor for us to be able to tell you about all the wonderful things YOUR support has made possible for our community of students and grannies.

And we’d like to tell you one more time what a great year it’s been for our Nyaka girls—thanks to YOU!

In one of our most recent stories, we shared an update with you about Justine, one of Nyaka's primary students who was involved in an accident that left her with burn injuries all over her body. These injuries resulted in scars that transformed her life into one filled with pain.

Thanks to YOUR help, Justine was able to recieve treatment in the US. Now she can be seen laughing and playing freely, without pain.

YOU changed her life and the lives of many more girl students like her. YOUR support matters to the Nyaka girls and we thank YOU. But we’ve still got $11,000 to raise before year end so we can continue the wonderful work we’ve all been a part of—enriching the lives of the Nyaka grannies and students.

YOU have made so much possible this year, and we know YOU can help us reach our year end goal!

Consider making a year-end donation towards girls' education today!
