The founder of the Nyaka AIDS Ophans School in Uganda Twesigye Jackson Kaguri has appealed to the people of Ugandan to avoid getting married early and producing so many children they can’t provide for.
He says producing few children will enable parents provide them adequate education which is the only ticket out of poverty.
Twesigye also appealed to children to take care of their parents in old age after achieving their education because it is their responsibility to look after them.
Twesigye, a former associate director for development and interim senior director of development for Michigan State University, who grew up and studied in Uganda at a time when education was not free says his relentless efforts to achieve education has made him successful.
He will on Saturday (19th June 2010) launch his book titled “The Price of Stones,” in the USA. The book details his life’s journey to date.
The Uganda government introduced free primary and secondary education, however many still miss because of extreme poverty which makes it hard for them to get basic school necessities like uniform, meals and stationery.
