A School for My Village: A Promise to the Orphans of Nyaka

Kaguri, Twesigye Jackson; Linville, Susan Urbanek Author

Image Not Available

The extraordinary story of one man's gift to orphaned children in need of hope

Can one person really make a difference in the world? 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.

Growing up on his family's 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. A School for My Village weaves together tales from Kaguri's youth and his inspiring account of building the school and changing the lives of many children.

Jackson Kaguri was recently named a 2012 CNN Hero.

About the Author:

Twesigye Jackson Kaguri was raised in Uganda, graduated from Makerere University, and was a visiting scholar at Columbia University. He is a director of development at Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan, and the founder and director of the Nyaka and Kutamba AIDS Orphans Schools in Uganda. Named a 2012 CNN Hero as well as a Heifer International Hero, he splits his time between Michigan and Uganda.


Susan Urbanek Linville, a biologist and writer, lives in Pennsylvania.

From AudioFile:

The author is a Ugandan native with modest rural roots whose worldview was expanded when he studied human rights at Columbia University. But his eyes were truly opened to the plight of AIDS orphans when he returned to his home village in Uganda. Narrator Richard Allen dramatizes the personal characteristics that led Jackson to found a free school for AIDS orphans: ingenuousness and persistent fortitude. Allen lends a graceful lilt to the African names and voices of those who played a role in Jackson's journey--from the initial idea for a small school to the impressive organization that is the Nyaka AIDS Orphans School today. The memoir's simple dialogue and prose are made agreeable, and sometimes even stirring, by Allen's rich narration. N.M.C. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
