"A School For My Village is an inspiring account of turning tragedy into hope for others."

- President Jimmy Carter

"Many Americans feel disconnected from the AIDS pandemic occurring on a continent so far away. Twesigye Jackson Kaguri, in his inspirational book A School For My Village, shortens that distance, making the effects of this disease personal by giving names and faces to AIDS orphans. But more significantly, many of Uganda's discarded children have been given hope and, even more important, love as students at The Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project. Jackson's life illustrates beautifully that one person can make a difference."

- Ron Hall, co-author of Same Kind of Different as Me

"By creating a school for AIDS orphans in a remote region of southwestern Uganda, Twesigye Jackson Kaguri answered the question, 'And who is my neighbor?' By telling his story with clarity and passion, he makes his neighbors ours as well."

- John C. Danforth, retired senator and former US ambassador to the United Nations

"This book shows that you can build a solid educational foundation for the future of Africa's children at the price of stones. Immensely inspiring."

- Calestous Juma, Professor of the Practice of International Development and Director of the Science, Technology, and Globalization Project, Kennedy School at Harvard University

"By page 23, I was hooked. By page 33, I had tears in my eyes, the first of many times as I read this impassioned account of one man's humble yet courageous efforts in confronting the grim legacy of the ruthless serial killer, AIDS, in his Ugandan village. If A School For My Village doesn't break your heart over the plight of AIDS orphans in Africa, see a cardiologist immediately. You may need a transplant."

- Lynn Vincent, New York Times best-selling writer of Same Kind of Different as Me and Going Rogue: An American Life
