THE STORY:

Mission

The Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project is working on behalf of HIV/AIDS orphans in rural Uganda to end systemic deprivation, poverty and hunger through a holistic approach to community development, education, and healthcare.

The HIV/AIDS Pandemic in Uganda

Over 2.2 million children have lost one or both parents.
Extended families and orphanages face enormous obstacles in attempting to care for these children.
Orphans and vulnerable children go without many basic human needs: food, shelter, clothing, health care, and education.
Orphans are often forced to be responsible for income generation, food production, and the care of sick parents and/or siblings.
They may be the first to be denied education when extended families cannot afford to educate all the children of the household.

Annual

$250 primary student, $325 with case management fee
$500 secondary students, $625 with case management fee

Monthly

$21/mo, primary student, $32/mo with case management
$42/mo, secondary student,$53/mo with case management

I was able to spend a week with Nyaka's children.  It was amazing to see how dedicated they were in their school works.  Some of these children had to walk several miles to attend school.  Please consider donating, here in the United States we take education for granted.
