A School for My Village: A Promise to the Orphans of Nyaka
In Uganda, where HIV/AIDS has affected almost a third of the adult population,
almost two million children have been orphaned by the epidemic. A School for My
Village is the story of the building of an extraordinary school for these orphans and the
astonishing efforts of one man to raise an African community out of poverty and
hopelessness. Weaving together tales from his youth with the enormously inspiring
account of the remarkable challenges and triumphs of the school, Jackson shows how
someone with a modest idea is capable of achieving monumental results.
