Children Should Be SEEN & HEARD!

Tonight, Jackson Kaguri will be giving the keynote speech at The Global Fund For Children Spring Gala 2012: Children Should Be Seen & Heard.  The Global Fund For Children invested in our children for the first time in 2005.

Seven years later, we are honored to have the opportunity to address an audience of so many generous supporters of our partnership with The Global Fund For Children

Jackson's address will touch on all of the programs that make up our human rights based, holistic approach with one major focus;

our grandmothers.

The women who ensure those children get up and walk those many miles to school every day.

The women who form groups to support each other and learn about micro-finance, AIDS prevention and even parenting classes.

The women who, when supported with your generous donations, are helping five children on average escape a life of poverty.

Honor or memorialize a special woman in your life with a gift to the grannies of Nyaka!

 Just look what your generosity has done to give the gift of dignity to Peace.  Read her story here.

Happy Mother's Day to you and all 6,200 grandmothers like Peace in southwest Uganda.

In gratitude,

The Nyaka Team
