As 2009 comes to the end, I would like to thank you once again for your support, care, and love. We graduated one class of 21 students last year, 21 students went on to secondary school, one student joined vocational training. This year we are graduating 26 students, our teachers tell me all 26 will pass their exams to secondary school. You have been there for us and so we come to you once again to support these wonderful 26 young people. $500 will cover all expenses (tuition, books, uniform, transport, and pocket money) for one year. Remember 65% of all our students are girls. Besides students we care for more than 6,000 grandmothers who have lost their own children and taking care of orphaned grandchildren, we have completed the first community library in Western Uganda. None of these accomplishments would be possible without your support. As you think of your holiday gifts, please do not forget Nyaka and Kutamba, do not forget grannies, and do not forget our communities. Thank you.

hoping to come to Nyaka one day.
