We're back from Thanksgiving, and we're still glowing in our appreciation of YOU!
This week, we'd like you to meet one of our bright students, Bruno Akankunda. When he came to Nyaka, Bruno was a child living alone.
You may remember Bruno from reading The Price of Stones by Founder and Executive Director,
Twesigye Jackson Kaguri.
In this picture, Bruno is in front of his home where he lived by himself.
When he speaks about this challenging time in his life, he tells us that the most difficult moments came in the middle of the night. He often found himself awake with no one to turn to.
With so little comfort, Bruno found solace in his schooling:
"I recite my homework for Nyaka in my head.
That makes me feel better."
Because of YOUR support,
so much has changed in Bruno's world.
Today, Bruno is 17 and no longer alone.
He is now boarding happily with his fellow Nyaka students, while working diligently towards graduation. In two years he'll be off to university!
Every time YOU lend a hand and help Nyaka, you open the world up to Bruno and his schoolmates.
YOUR help has given him an invaluable gift--a loving community, a network of support, and a bright future.
Together we have made a difference.
