A School for My Village: A Promise to the Orphans of Nyaka by Twesigye Jackson Kaguri, Susan Urbanek Linville

<div><b>An inspiring account of turning tragedy into hope for others.<br /> -President Jimmy Carter</b><br /> <br /> Can one person really make a difference in the world?<br /> Twesigye Jackson Kaguri overcame tremendous odds as he followed his dream to build a school for AIDS orphans in his village in Uganda. This is his unforgettable story.<br /> <br /> Growing up on his familys small farm, Kaguri worked many hours each day for his taskmaster father, though he was lucky his parents were able to send him to school. Kaguri eventually became a visiting scholar at Columbia University. Returning to his home years later, he was overwhelmed by the plight of AIDS orphans and vowed to build them a tuition-free school. <i>A School for My Village</i> weaves together tales from Kaguris youth and his inspiring account of building the school and changing the lives of many children.<br /> <br /></div
