Nyaka Teams Up with Nike

Girl Power

Greetings from Team Nyaka!

We have a special request today.  The Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project has been selected to participate in the Nike Girl Effect Challenge.  We have a separate fundraising page for this initiative, as it concentrates on the girls our wonderful grandmothers are supporting.  Please click here.   Same cause.  Same great organization.  Focus shift to granddaughters!

Would you please make a $10 contribution today?

We need a large number of donors to give a small amount to win the challenge.  We need over 100 donations in the next 24 hours to get into the top three finalists.

Partnerships with Nike have resulted in many thousands of dollars raised for girls like Olivia:

I am Ahabwe Olivia from Ishaka Secondary School. I recently attended a health education camp that lasted two days and it was led by “Reach a Hand" - a nonprofit from Kampala. It was so colorful and we were with college students named Humphrey, Brendah, Hellen, Kasiime, and others. They told us not to have sex at an early stage for we could get pregnant, contract diseases and/or HIV/AIDS. As a result, I made a decision not to have sex at early stage and instead concentrate on my books. Kasiime told us to have love for one another and respect each other as we listen to our elders. I thank Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project for the camp they organized for us.  I learned so much!

As we reach the 7 billion population mark it seems more urgent to help us help Olivia grow up, attend university, and become a teacher, doctor, or nurse before having children!  Give a small donation today and encourage 5 of your friends to do the same.

Thank you for stretching your investment in our grandmothers to their granddaughters by participating in this special challenge!


P.S. - Check out this cool Nike Girl Effect video.  Get inspired and give today!
