YOU are opening doors for your children!

Shallon is in primary 6 at Kutamba and he loves math.

He loves it SO MUCH that, when he grows up, he wants to be an accountant.

One day he wants to use his success to help other orphans like YOU have helped him.

If it hadn’t been for YOU, Shallon wouldn't have learned that he loves math and he wouldn't know that he could be an accountant when he grows up.

Shallon is just one of the 656 children who are in school because of YOU!

Each child YOU have rescued has a story just like Shallon’s.

Thank you for loving Shallon and all of YOUR children in Uganda.  

 

YOU can help more children like Shallon this Wednesday.

Thanks to Microsoft YouthSpark, your gift will be matched 100%!

Meet Emmanuel!
Meet Emmanuel!

Meets Emmanuel! He is 14-years-old. He has 2 siblings and lives in the village of Rugazi. YOU have given him not only dreams but also the values of hard work and a strong character.

Emmanuel is a determined primary 7 student at Kutamba School and strives to be helpful.

This drive makes him want to be a doctor when he grown up. His biggest desire is to treat those who need help. In order to do this, he has been working hard in school to get the best grades in the class.

Emmanuel values family and home as well. He works hard after school to collect firewood for heat and cooking and he loves to eat fish. For fun, he enjoys playing fütbol.

Think of all YOU have done for Emmanuel with your continued support of Nyaka. YOU are so amazing!

Soon you'll have the opportunity to help even more children just like Emmanuel!

Join us June 25th for a Youth Spark match day that will give 100% matching to YOUR nyaka children.

  • Matching is applied at 100% for every donation from $10 up to $1,000 per donor per project/microproject until matching funds run out.
  • The project or microproject that raises the most funds on Bonus Day will receive an additional $2,500.
  • The project or microproject that has the most unique donors on Microsoft YouthSpark's Bonus Day will receive an additional $2,500.

We hope you will join us and help YOUR children get the food, clothing, and education they need to be happy and healthy!

YOU are amazing.

There are 656 children who are in school because of YOU!

They get two hot meals at school because of YOU!

They have clothes on their backs and shoes on their feet because of YOU

And they can see a doctor when they are sick because of YOU!

Someday they will be doctors, pilots, business owners, engineers, and community leaders. They will make the world a better place. It is going to happen because YOU are helping them.

We hope YOU know how much YOUR children love YOU!

Thank YOU!

 

Let's get more children in school!

Ding! Ding! Ding!

Do you hear that? It's the beautiful sound of a school bell in the morning.

It represents the start of learning, the priming of a future!

YOU make sure that YOUR students can have quality primary education through the Nyaka and Kutamba primary schools! And YOU have supported the students through their secondary and vocational school education at secondary schools across the region. 

But now those endeavors and dreams don't have to be met by leaving home. In just a few, short months, YOUR Secondary students will be able to attend the NEW Nyaka Secondary and Vocational School that YOU are building!

That means that YOUR students can stay at home with their grandmothers and stay close to the support system that will ensure they stay healthy and learn a lot so they can go to University! 

Listen for the sound of that school-bell, the chatter of students in the halls, the sound of pencils scratching against paper…and smile!

Smile because YOU deserve to. YOU are a hero. YOU’VE done it! YOU have saved their futures.

YOU have made this secondary school possible.

There are dreams and then there are realities. It takes someone really special to make those the same thing. YOU are really special. We couldn’t do this without YOU.

So, thank YOU

 

Global Giving and Microsoft had a Bonus Day on April 16th.

YOU raised $3,068 for your Nyaka students. 

Didn't get a chance to make a donation during the last Bonus Day? 

No worries! You have another chance to give next Wednesday (May 7th) at 9:00am (EST)!

Your gift will be matched 30%!

Isaac
Isaac

Come on in! Take a seat. I’d like to introduce you to Isaac. Isaac is 11 years old and doesn’t have a whole lot. But…

YOU give him hope and life! Thanks to YOUR support and love, he and his 4 siblings live happily with their grandmother.

YOU give Isaac more than you know. YOU give Isaac dreams and YOU enable him to think of a future beyond poverty.

YOU are the reason that he loves to learn and wants to be a lawyer when he grows up! 

We hope you will join us today to make sure every child like Isaac can go to school!

Today at 12:00pm Microsoft will match your donations!

50% for all one-time donations and 100% for recurring donations!

Make your gift after 12:00pm but be sure to be quick! Matching funds go very fast!

Isaac is a wonderful, well-rounded young man, who is going to do something amazing one day.

And guess what? It's all because of YOU!
