Provide Education to AIDS Orphans in Rural Uganda

by The Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project

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!

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!

YOU are changing the lives of children like Tedius.

After his father passed away from HIV/AIDS, his mother could not afford to send Tedius to school. For so many children in Uganda, this is the beginning of a very sad story. Without YOU, Tedius’ story would be just like many of them. He would be tending the herd in the fields or fetching firewood.

But YOU saved Tedius' life.

Because of YOU he is a student at Kutamba Primary School with big dreams of becoming a pilot when he grows up.

YOU have put children like Tedius where they belong…in school.

In Tedius’ words, “Thank you for loving me.”

YOUR children love you and they are so grateful for everything YOU have done for them.

I am amazed by YOU!

Look at everything YOU did in 2013!

Join us in congratulating Nyaka’s class of 2013! 78 students graduated from primary or secondary school. Thanks to YOUR hard work and donations this was possible!

YOU began the creation of a the new Nyaka Secondary and Vocational School. This will provide a learning environment for students for generations to come and employment for the local community.

YOU provided healthcare, helping students get the medicines and vaccinations that they need to stay healthy. YOU immunized 36 girls in P.4 and P.5 against HPV. YOU also helped bring a dental camp to the Nyaka schools and villages, where the Doctors attended to over 500 patients.

And on top of all of this, YOU continue to provide full-time education for over 650 students at the primary and secondary level!

YOU are changing lives so they can change their community! Keep up the amazing work. The students and grannies send tons and tons of love.
