AGYA Secures Facility in Village of Nabulagala

Organization Hopes to Raise $1500 for AGYA Library and Computer Lab

With the support of a few dedicated donors, AGYA has secured a 6 classroom facility in Nabulagala, a village located approximately 10 minutes outside of Kampala, Uganda's capital city.

The AGYA Leadership Team will be moving into the new facility on January 1, 2009. AGYA will host our first program on Monday, January 5, 2009. Throughout the week, we will host the following programs at the AGYA House in Nabulagala: Computer Skills, African History, Language, Fashion Design, Creative Writing, Art (Dance & Music), Photography, Film, and Media.

AGYA would like to offer a special thank you to our "Founding Funders," those individuals whose generosity helped AGYA secure a new facility in less than 2 weeks.

To show our gratitude and commemorate their support for our dream of empowering Ugandan youth, we will be painting a mural on the wall of our new facility. Designed by our students, this mural will list the names of each and every person who made a donation to our cause. We hope to have the mural completed by February 28, 2009!

Although AGYA raised enough money to secure a facility, we are now raising funds to furnish the facility and purchase supplies and materials.

Within the next 30 days, we hope to raise $1500 which will go towards buying books for the AGYA Library, financing the AGYA Free Lunch Program, buying 2 used desktop computers for the AGYA Computer Lab, and purchasing various arts and crafts supplies.

To help us reach our $1500 fundraising goal, you can use the secure PayPal link to your left!

We are so thankful for your everyone who believes in our dream of empowering Ugandan youth and we look forward to your continued support as AGYA develops in 2009.
