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."
You and your love help operate two free primary schools for over 465 vulnerable children that provide meals, clothes, medical care, vocational training, community potable water, and a HIV/AIDS prevention program. Your love also provides scholarships to over 191 secondary school students. These scholarships cover their tuition, supplies, transportation, health care, and other services.
The Nyaka Secondary and Vocational School opened to educate your students in 2015. In 2015, the very first class of students from Nyaka will be attending university, and they will graduate in 2018. Starting in 2017, you will be supporting over 900 students, from young nursery students to passionate university students, on an annual basis. Each year, as students graduate from university, they will be replaced by 60 new nursery students, and the cycle of empowerment will continue.
