Nyaka was founded in Southwest Uganda to help the orphaned children who had lost their parents to HIV/AIDS. Unfortunately, orphans often go without many basic human needs including food, shelter, clothing, healthcare, and education. While extended families usually take care of orphaned children, the HIV/AIDS pandemic was so devastating that many children had no one to care for them. They had no hope of escaping poverty.
For the past 18 years, Nyaka has been working to provide free education to these children along with textbooks, uniforms, shoes, nutritious meals, clean water, healthcare (which includes HIV/AIDS testing and treatment) and scholastic materials. Nyaka works to provide everything these children need to succeed. Nyaka has also created numerous community programs such as the Grandmother Program to help support and empower the women raising these children, EDJA to combat sexual and domestic violence this community faces, and the Nutrition Program. Nyaka has expanded the Grandmother Program to serve nearly 10,000 grandmothers this year— reaching 60,000 orphaned children
