Nyaka works with communities in Uganda to provide comprehensive care for vulnerable children.

Holistic care for the whole child.

We’re audacious in our commitment to surround community children with a complete support system. Because every child deserves all basic human rights, love, and care. Our model is rooted in social ecological theory, and we seek to impact every aspect of a child’s development.

Tangible impact, visible change.

A generation of change.

In 2001, Nyaka’s founder Twesigye Jackson Kaguri made a promise to 30 children from his village: he would build them a school and ensure they had what they needed to attend. The school opened in 2003 with 55 children. 19 years later, Nyaka now offers a range of health, education, and community programs to continue nurturing and protecting children. Nyaka alumni are heavily involved in supporting and expanding our programs.
