Little Kutamba Student Sleeping
YOU are a champion for children!
When Nyaka first opened its doors, we gathered all of the important things for a great school. We had pencils and paper, passionate teachers, textbooks, uniforms, everything we thought we would need.
Everything seemed to be going great until we realized we had one very big problem.
Our students couldn't stay awake.
We had students excited to learn but they were falling asleep at their desks, unable to absorb the vital information that would help them escape poverty.
Nyaka was missing one essential ingredient--healthy food.
Many of our students are being cared for by their grandmothers who can offer love and shelter but cannot afford to feed all of their grandchildren. Some grandmothers are raising more than 12 grandchildren!
Because of YOUR support, we were able to quickly to solve the problem. YOU started providing two meals for YOUR students every school day. YOU started Desire Farm to grow food and raise animals to keep our students fueled and ready to learn! YOU even provided gardening tools, seeds, and training for their grandmothers to ensure that they could keep their grandchildren fed!
Right now there are 463 primary students who are receiving two meals per day through the nutrition program YOU made possible. Now your students have beans, peas, groundnuts, meat, posho, vegetables, rice, matooke (green bananas), sweet potatoes and Irish potatoes to keep them healthy and full of precious energy!
If that wasn't enough, YOUR students now have 200 chickens to provide eggs!
YOU make all of this possible.
