The Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project (NAOP) is working to free orphans from the cycle of poverty by providing a high-quality, free education, both formal and informal, to children who have been orphaned due to HIV/AIDS in order to counteract pervasive hunger, poverty, and systemic deprivation. Your donation will help provide a student with a uniform, meals, medicine, and supplies for one school year. For your secondary students, your donation will also include transportation to their school.

Hundreds of thousands of families in southwestern Uganda have lost breadwinners to HIV/AIDS, and are stuck in systemic poverty cycles where children lack access to healthcare, education, food, and shelter. Your support helps fight poverty by empowering these children, especially girls, through free, quality education, healthcare, and basic needs. A girl student, Irene, says, "We were suffering in the villages...I am very happy to be in secondary school where I forget about being an orphan."


Your love and support helps operate two free primary schools and a secondary school. Along with scholarships to others schools, YOU are educating over 800 children from nursery to university. This also includes providing them with meals, clothes, medical care, vocational training, clean water, an HIV/AIDS prevention program, supplies, transportation, and healthcare - everything they need to be successful!

Long-Term Impact

In 2018, you will be supporting over 800 students, from young nursery students to passionate university students. Each year, as students graduate from university, they will be replaced by 60 new nursery students, and the cycle of empowerment will continue.
