Nyaka graduates at seconday school
Greetings from the Nyaka AIDS Foundation. We have lots of new things to show you. Brace yourself! I'll spread this over a couple of updates.
Our secondary school students are doing extremely well. In fact, among his 106 peers, one of our students got first place in his 1st term exam results. Check out an excel sheet attached with their results and rankings for their class. We wanted to see our impact in the lives of girls so we colored coded the students into girls and boys. You can see that the boys seem to be excelling in secondary school over our girls. Although we are extremely proud at how much they have accomplished against all odds, we are working with our teachers and staff at Nyaka and Kutamba to help our girls through extra coaching. We are also working with our guardians to make sure our girl students get the time they need to study. Attached is also a picture of our students in their secondary school uniforms. Very sharp!
In addition, the Nyaka school welcomed Brian and Alexis from Global Giving a week and a half ago. Brian and Alexis are traveling around Eastern Africa visiting the most successful projects that you support in each country. They made a video intimating their experiences and what they learned. The video speaks for itself so check it out at the first link below. You will have to scroll down about half way to reach it.
Construction on the Blue Lupin Community Library is well on its way. It's absolutely beautiful. Our grandmothers have been demanding adult literacy classes (as they absolutely deserve!) so the sooner we finish the better! If you want to see a chronology of the construction so far and read more about Nyaka's aspirations with the Library visit our Facebook Page: Nyaka AIDS Foundation. Indeed, we now have a lot of content on there including videos, picture albums, and discussions on Nyaka topics. If you have Facebook you can follow us there by becoming a fan of the page! A link to the page is below.
Thank you so much for your continuing support. As you can see, it's making a world of a difference in the lives that mean the most to us all. The future is bright!
All the best,
Nyaka AIDS Foundation
