Moved by the plight of more than one million AIDS orphans in Uganda, a nation with a population of 30 million, Twesigye Jackson Kaguri, a Human Rights advocate returning home after studying at Columbia University, decided to make a difference. He founded the Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project. This project provides free education to children who have lost one or both parents to HIV/AIDS. In addition to two schools, it also operates a library, a farm and nutrition program, medical clinic, clean water system and a support program for the grandmothers who care for these children.
Mr. Kaguri is also the co-author of "The Price of Stones, Building a School for My Village'.
The Schoolcraft College family is supporting this very worthy cause as a Service Learning Project.The Schoolcraft community has raised nearly $18,000 so far!
All are welcome to hear Mr. Kaguri's story and share his vision.
This will be Mr. Kaguri's final visit to Schoolcraft.
