YOUR $10 will provide school supplies for a student entering secondary school. And with this doubling, it will provide two students with supplies! Over the course of a year YOU will have provided twenty-four secondary school students! Imagine that!

Hear ye! Hear ye!
This is important for all to see!
From now ‘till years end,
Exists this awesome trend:
Make a recurring donation, and magically, before your eyes,
Watch it double! By an anonymous donor so nice. 
Your $10 a month will become twenty!
And you’ll be providing plenty!

Recently YOU built an amazing resource: The Blue Lupin Library! Look at how much the students are enjoying and how much they are learning from YOUR creation!

You may never meet the students and grannies whom you've supported and loved from a far, but please know they love you and are grateful for you!

So, give a little and have double the impact! And see how many lives YOU change then!

YOU can make the difference for students like John .

John  was the last child born into a family whose future was devastated by HIV/AIDS.  After their father died, none of the five children did had hope of going to school. In fact, the oldest three children never had the chance to go to school. There just wasn’t enough money to send them.

YOU can change the outcome for John and his sister!

Tuesday, December 3rd is a special bonus day.

Starting at 12:00pm until the funds are gone, every penny you donate between $10.00 and $1,000.00 will be matched by Microsoft!

This is a great opportunity for your donation to go twice as far!

Because of donors like YOU, when the Kutamba Primary School was opened, John  and his older sister Agatha were given an opportunity they never dreamed of before.

John  described it in his own words “they were giving us everything like food, uniform from shoes to sweaters, tooth paste with toothbrush and sometimes casual wear which at first was a dream.”

Because of YOUR generosity, John  is working to be a doctor! 

Because of YOU, your students have something to be grateful for this holiday season.  

YOU have provided the uniform, meals, medicine, and supplies for school.

Every donation brings us one step closer to ending poverty for orphaned children in Uganda so please give and give generously!

Holiday greetings from Nyaka and Kutamba students in Uganda!

Over the past few years you have invested in our children and grannies and that fills me with gratitude.  Today I am asking you to reinvest in their lives.  A generous gift of any size will make a huge impact on their livelihood and happiness.  Please consider donating $75 or more today.  It is enough to provide a student with a school uniform, socks, shoes, and undergarments and a girl with necessary sanitary products and medicine for a year!

Please come with me on a journey to Uganda.

Imagine the sounds of little feet running through the grass after walking hours over hilly dirt roads to school. 

See their purple and green uniforms tenderly cared for by their grandmothers.

See the smiles YOU bring to their faces!

Twelve years ago, the doors opened at the Nyaka Primary School for 56 orphaned students.

Today, 12 years later, you are educating more than 600 students as well as assisting thousands of grannies and their grandchildren in the surrounding community.

In addition to all of these programs YOU have come to love and know, we are building a Secondary and Vocational Training School and many of our resources this year have been dedicated to the beginning stage of this project.  Over the next five years the school will save the organization money, but the next three years are critical in funding both the building of the school and our current programs. 

Giving generously today will ensure this happens.

Now, please take a moment to think about what your education has done for you. Think of the opportunities it has provided you, the relationships and connections it allowed you to make, and how it made you who you are today. Think about how grateful you are for your education.

I implore you to invest greatly in YOUR students’ lives today, so that they too can earn a higher wage and change their community.

This short video kicks off our six-week storytelling series we have made especially for you.  This week's video is less than 2 minutes long and is sure to fill you with gratitude. Enjoy it and share it with your family and friends!

Thank YOU for your generous support of the Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project. Too often the stories that we hear on the news are tragic. Because of YOU, the stories of the AIDS Orphans we serve are full of hope!

Because of YOUR SUPPORT, the Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project is building a new secondary school to serve even more AIDS Orphans in Southwest Uganda. You can see the progress for the new school is making great progress after only two months! Thanks to YOU, we are on track to meet our building goals!

This school will provide both seconday education and vocational training! So that every primary student has the opportunity to continue to learn and grow. Education is the key to getting our children out of the cycle of poverty. And YOU continue to make that happen!

It's happening all thanks to YOU!

YOU have done it!

After so many years of supporting the students of Nyaka YOU have helped us reach a point where we've  broken ground on a Nyaka Secondary and Vocational Training School. 

Your unwavering support has ensured that all of our Nyaka and Kutamba Primary school students have graduated! As a result the need for building a secondary school now is greater than ever.

True to the holistic model YOU have invested and believed in over the past twelve years, the school will combine both traditional subjects together and special vocational technical subjects like tailoring and up and coming agricultural practices. 

The school will be free for our graduates to attend...this is a very progressive concept in Uganda.

Attatched you will find a letter from our executive director, Jackson...enjoy!
