You are welcome here, Bet-ty!

Volunteers are the life blood of Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project, so naturally we are excited to be hosting Betty Londergan in Uganda. Betty recently accompanied a group of doctors and other volunteers to Nyaka School. We are especially grateful to Betty, not only for her aide on site, but also for spreading the word about Nyaka and sharing her experiences on her blog, What Gives 365. Betty began this blog with a plan to give $100 a day to worthy cause for a full year. Two years later, she is still blogging and still giving, most recently through her trip to Nyaka. Follow the links below to read about her trip and meet the students, teachers, and grandmothers through her eyes.
