The road is strewn with many dangers…First is the danger of futility; the belief there is nothing one man or one woman can do against the enormous array of the world’s ills…Yet…each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current which can sweep the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.
-Robert F. Kennedy, 1966
I want to extend my sincere thanks to all of the kind, compassionate individuals who made my learning & work in Uganda possible.
Your generosity, empathy, and open hearts affected the lives of so many Ugandan women, men, and children.
