sponsor a student

The Sponsor a Student Program is a unique way to make a personal connection with a Nyaka and/or Kutamba student. You pledge to donate the cost of school attendance for a student of your choosing. Once you're matched, you'll receive letters and pictures from your student three times a year. You are invited to share your own pictures and letters with your student as often as you want.

How it Works

$375 covers a primary student's school fees, a uniform, shoes, meals, medicine, books, and supplies for an entire year. The donation also contributes to the counseling, administration, and staff time that keeps the Nyaka and Kutamba Primary Schools operating.

$625 provides a secondary student's education costs. Your sponsorship for these students covers their school fees, uniforms, meals, medicine, supplies, transportation and room & board for the whole school year. 

Secondary students in grades senior 1-3 attend the Nyaka Vocational Secondary School.
Students in secondary grades 4-6 receive scholarships to attend other schools in the region.

Sponsors will receive immediate acknowledgment of their commitment to a student along with a picture and letter. Three times per year, they will receive communication from the student that will tell them about the student's progress in school, their hopes and dreams, or about what their lives are like in Uganda. Sponsors are invited to write their student as often as they would like by emailing Nyaka's sponsorship associate at sponsor@nyakaschool.org.
