You Empower Susan to Access Education AND Health Care!

Thanks to your support, Susan can  transcend her life of rural poverty by working towards a career in health care!

By the time Nakunda Susan was five, she had lost her father. Her mother was left to take care of Susan and her five older siblings. Her mother could barely afford to fix their broken down house, let alone pay for Susan’s school fees. Susan’s education was a low priority. It’s uncommon for impoverished girls in rural Uganda to attend school. They’re often pushed to get married as soon as they can.

However, because of your compassion, everything changed for Susan and her family! A neighbor, who was a teacher, came to Susan’s home to share that orphans could attend school for free at Nyaka. Susan was soon enrolled in nursery class at Nyaka Primary School.

While at Nyaka Primary School, you provided Susan with and education, as well as necessities like clothes, books, and breakfast/lunch. You also impacted the lives of Susan’s family when you repaired her crumbling home.

You gave Susan a safe place to study so she could succeed. Academic success is crucial for Susan, because she dreams of being a nurse. One day, when she was too ill to attend class, she visited Nyaka’s Mummy Drayton Clinic. Because you make it possible for students to access FREE health care, Susan was immediately treated and returned back to school.

She was amazed to learn that the nurse who helped her had once been just like her! Nurse Ruth had been one of Nyaka’s first students. Now she was a bright, successful young woman. (you can read Ruth’s story here)!

Because you empowered Ruth 17 years ago, Susan was inspired. She decided then that she would work hard to become a Nyaka nurse too like her hero, Ruth. Your compassion is creating a wave of change in Uganda!

Because of the opportunities you provide for Nyaka students, Susan has the tools she needs to achieve her dreams AND impact generations of orphaned students to come. Thank you!
