Nyaka works to free children from the cycle of poverty by providing a high-quality, free education, both formal and informal to orphaned, abandoned or vulnerable children due to HIV/AIDS in order to counteract pervasive hunger, poverty, and systemic deprivation. Your donations will help us repair, maintain and operate two primary schools and a secondary and vocational school for these children in rural southwest Uganda, as well as providing extracurricular activities and extra tuition.
Nyaka schools are located in a very remote, mountainous area. Basic infrastructure such as water, electricity and internet as difficult to establish and maintain. The hilly terrain makes transportation difficult and the equatorial sun and heavy rains cause erosion and damage. We are working to improve our basic infrastructure, especially via solar panels and improved water management and internet access.
Nyaka provides children with high quality education. We want our students to have a safe and nurturing environment which supports their learning, provides targeted initiatives which take into account their specific -and often very difficult-circumstances and provides positive role models, sports activities, IT and science labs and more. We want our students to dream big and excel
The secondary and vocational school will help the local economy by providing more jobs. The students will have better grades and more will graduate, going on to access better jobs and give back to their communities.
