Joyce Nawaguma noticed that many children in her community were unable to attend school. But where others had only seen a challenge, Joyce saw an opportunity. She started a school in a small garage with just 6 students. Today, nearly 400 children attend her school and they are thriving. And the impact Joyce is creating extends throughout her community. She employs nearly 25 teachers and assistants, and a number of her former students have continued on to postsecondary or vocational training. With three loans from Opportunity, Joyce built a latrine for her students, created living space for her teachers who can't afford rent in the city and purchased a van for student transportation and field trips. Her school is flourishing, and Opportunity International is providing the resources Joyce needs to make her dreams possible.
With your support, Opportunity can grow and strengthen the schools created by talented and dedicated entrepreneurs like Joyce. The school proprietors working with Opportunity in Uganda, for example, are enrolling nearly 25 percent more students as a result of our loans!
