We believe passionately that our programs change lives. The long-term involvement of Nyaka program participants and supporters worldwide are a testament to the enormous impact our work has made on the life experiences of individuals and communities over the past two decades.
Our programs are well-established, community- driven, proven, and replicable.
”"There is nothing better than being able to give back to the community that has touched you."Dennis14 years with Nyaka
When I got the offer to work for Nyaka, I was so excited to return home. I strive to do my job perfectly to ensure somebody can step where I have stepped — so somebody else can succeed and become a vital member of the community.
I went through the entire Nyaka school system and performed well, which earned me admittance to Makerere University Business School. I never thought it would be possible to attend university. As I stood in my graduation gown, I thought, “Who am I to be here?” Nyaka has done something right for me.
Monitoring and evaluation.
We’re passionate about data. We’ve collected quantitative and qualitative data on the lives and experiences of Nyaka participants for decades. From Grandmothers sharing how access to microfinance has changed their lives to exemplary university admissions rates, the data demonstrates the success of our alumni and proves the impact we’ve had on our community. Our newly established M&E arm uses both local talent and experienced international consultants to further this effort. And we’re training community and staff members in cutting-edge digital data collection methods and statistical analysis to inform our programs.
