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!

The Bonus Day starts TODAY at 9:00am EST (lasts until 11:59pm EST or funds run out).

Your donation will be matched 30%!

Even a small donation helps! The project with the MOST donations gets a $1,000 BonusThat's enough to send four children to school for a whole year!

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%!

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!

I am so amazed by YOU!

Because of YOU, 656 children are in school.

YOU are making sure that they are healthy and fed.

YOU are giving hundreds of children a future to dream for. 

Children just like Isameli.

Isameli loves to play net ball with his friends and he really loves going to school. In fact, he loves school so much that he wants to be a teacher when he grows up so he can help other children!

YOU have instilled the love of learning in his heart. And, because of YOU, he will have the opportunity to share his love with generations of students to come! 

Even though it will be many years before Isameli will be able to use the precious gift that YOU have given him to help other children in his community, he already feels the love and support YOU are giving him.

There are still thousands more children just like Isameli who need your help!

We hope you will join us this Wednesday at Noon for 

Global Giving's Bonus Day

All donations over $10 will be matched up to $1,000!

One-time donations will be matched 50%!

All Recurring donations will be matched 100%!

Thank you for the wonderful gift YOU have given Isameli and all of your children in Uganda!

Meet Bruce! He is 15-years-old and a primary 7 student at Kutamba.

He has 2 siblings and hails from a village called Rugazi.

YOU provide him with opportunity to fulfill all of his dreams. When he grows up he wants to be a Doctor so he can save lives just as YOU have saved his! Bruce is a very hands-on and caring child. After school he loves to take the animals out for grazing and watches over them carefully.

But don’t worry! He has his fun too! In his free time, Bruce loves to play soccer with his friends!

YOU inspire and help to provide for him in every way you can. YOU give him books, meals, clean water, school supplies, an education and so much more! Bruce is most thankful to YOU about providing him with free education. In fact, he plans on earning top grades this year, because he really wants you to be proud of him!

So, meet future Doctor, Bruce! He is going to save lives one day.
