CNN Hero Twesigye Jackson Kaguri, founder of The Nyaka AIDS Project, will be on campus from Monday, August 21 to Saturday, August 26, encouraging our students to serve the community by sharing his life experiences. A humble immigrant living the American dream, Kaguri left Columbia University to return home to Uganda to care for his brother, who was dying of AIDS. Realizing that the disease had overwhelmed his village, Jackson made a decision, setting in motion the events that changed the lives of the people of the Enengo Valley in Western Uganda.
Please join us for a screening of Cornerstone, an inspiring documentary about the journey of Twesigye Jackson Kaguri, which led to the founding of The Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project. We also invite the community to hear his story firsthand, followed by a book signing event.
Both events will be held at the high school library. The documentary will be screened on Tuesday, August 22, 3:15 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. (free seating)
Jackson Kaguri will share his life story with us on Thursday, August 24, 3:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Click here to register for this event.
