YOU Area amazing!

YOU are making history for girls like Rosette!

After she lost her parents to HIV/AIDS, Rosette’s life could have been like many girls in Uganda. She would not have had the opportunity to go to school. She would probably have been married too young and started having children before she was ready.

Because of YOU, Rosette is in school and studying hard so one day she can be an engineer. She is working hard to show her community and herself that girls are capable, smart, and ready to be leaders in Uganda.

Because of YOU, Rosette had an opportunity to attend Robotics and Electronics Camp in Gulu where she learned about engineering and got to build her own robot!

YOU have opened doors for Rosette and other girls like her through your support. 

I am in awe of YOU!

YOUR 2013 primary and secondary school graduates
YOUR 2013 primary and secondary school graduates

We join you in congratulating your Nyaka class of 2013!

78 students graduated from primary school and secondary school. Thanks to YOUR hard work and donations this was possible!

One of our graduates, Justine, has overcome very difficult and painful obstacles to achieve this accomplishment.

When Justine was in primary school, her dress caught on fire while she was lighting a lamp. Justine suffered through terrible burns on her face, arms, back, and chest.

Justine’s scars made her skin so tight, that she had trouble smiling and closing her eyelids. Through the support of people like YOU and the generous donation of The Shriner Hospital for Children in Boston, she was able to get the medical care she needed to keep her healthy and in school.

YOU have given Justine so much through your support and, because of YOU, Justine is standing proudly beside her peers as a strong woman ready to make an impact for her community.

There are more girls like Justine who are ready to change the world.

YOU are ensuring that they will.

YOU can make the difference for students like Fortunate.

Fortunate is 8 years old. She likes jumping rope and reading storybooks. She wants to be a teacher when she grows up. For many girls her age, marriage and children are only a few short years away.

Because of YOU, Fortunate will have a different life.

Tomorrow is a special bonus day. 

Starting at 12:00pm until the funds are gone, every penny you donate between $10.00 and $1,000.00 will be matched by Microsoft! 

This is a great opportunity for your donation to go twice as far!

Because of YOUR generosity, Agatha has more to hope for than early marriage. She can become whomever she wants to be!

Because of YOU, your students have something to be grateful for this holiday season.  

YOU have provided the uniform, meals, medicine, and supplies for girls attending school.

Every donation brings us one step closer to ending poverty for orphaned girls in Uganda so please give and give generously!

Dear Nyaka Friends and Family,

Thank YOU for your generous support of the Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project. Because of YOU, girls in the Nyaka and Kutamba Primary Schools are on their way to bright futures in their communities.

Thank you,

Jackson Kaguri

Executive Director of the Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project

“The news channels bombard us with tragic events daily. Car wrecks. Fires. Floods. Famine. Mass shootings. Maybe only one out of 20 stories is uplifting and inspirational. After the mass shooting at the naval yard in Washington, D.C. and the attack at the mall in Kenya, even I began to wonder if there was no goodness left in the world. But only for a moment. For I have witnessed the generosity of thousands, and have seen greatness in the human spirit.” - See more at: http://nyakaproject.blogspot.com/2013/10/bonus-day.html#sthash.zn6bIpwA.dpuf

Our Girls at the groundbreaking ceremony!
Our Girls at the groundbreaking ceremony!

YOU have done something amazing!

After so many years of supporting the girls of Nyaka YOU have helped to break ground on our very own Secondary and Vocational Training School. 

As you know, girls in particular face many challenges on their road to attaining an education.  They are typically the last to be sent to school, stay home when they begin to menstruate, and face rape and early marriage on a soo frequent basis.  Your support has ensured they can attend school for free, have access to sanitary napkins, and stay in school rather than being lured into marriage or early preganancy.  Thank you!

Your unwavering support has ensured that all of our Nyaka and Kutamba Primary school students have graduated.  As a result the need for building a secondary school for our girls is now is greater than ever.

Ensuring that the students you've invested in go on to secondary school is an important part of our mission at The Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project. We know YOU care and that you want to provide students with the same basic support you would provide your very own children.

With your help, we are paving the way to a bright future for this generation despite our students' status as orphans or any of the other challenges they have faced in their young lifetimes; like extreme poverty, lack of access to clean drinking water, entering school malnourished and hungry, and the loss of one or both parents. 

Attatched you will find a letter from our executive director, Jackson.

Thank YOU for all of the amazing work you've done to help these girls!
