I love what the Nyaka Project stands for. They take a holistic approach to helping children and are truly making a difference. I have done fundraisers for them in my community and volunteered in their office. I am proud to support their work any way I can.
I love everything about Nyaka! I love that they believe in human rights and empowerment. You can see that in everything they do. They empower grandmothers to use their own talents and knowledge to get out of poverty. They give the most vulnerable children free education. I had the privilege of visiting them in 2014 and it was a life changing experience. I would recommend this nonprofit to anyone who will listen.
The Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project is a unique and shining example of how a non profit, charitable organization can change the lives of a large community in need. By addressing the overwhelming AIDS crisis in rural Uganda holistically, they are not just saving the lives of the more than 1 million children orphaned by the epidemic but the grandmothers left to care for them and future generations. Watch the video at the link below to see how Nyaka is making a real and lasting difference.
Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project is helping children in rural Uganda by providing them an education. This story is not just about building schools, though. They have also built a gravity-fed water system for the entire area, opened a medical clinic, and started a library and a garden. The whole-person and whole- community idea is the reason Nyaka does such a great job. They are also very, very creative about development, and they communicate by social media often, keeping me feeling like I really am in the loop.
I am a volunteer, helping remotely with the Sponsor-a-Student program, but I am a supporter, too, sponsoring students and, in 2012, helping my daughter with a bake sale fundraiser for Nyaka.
I love the Nyaka School. This organization does work for the AIDS orphans and their grandmothers in many ways. In addition to providing a school, uniforms, meals, and school supplies, they have built housing for some of the grandmothers who are caring for children who have lost both parents to AIDS. They have also helped provide running water and a medical facility. I have met Jackson Kaguri once, and he seems like a very genuine person, and one with great ideas about helping the orphans of Uganda.

The best holistic approach to alleviating poverty I have seen. They provide education, helathcare, food, Library services, and work work with grannies.
