The Nyanya Project is a non-profit organization in North Carolina that assists grandmothers in raising their grandchildren who were orphaned as a result of AIDS. They help these women in forming working cooperatives, which help them earn money, healthcare, and education. The Nyanya Project has been operating a preschool in the slums of Kibera in Nairobi for the past three years. They would like to open a new school in Rwanda as well. The Nyanya Project has a goal of raising $20,000 by Mother’s Day 2012 - $20 for 1,000 people.
