A few weeks ago, our university was visited by Sister Rosemary Nyirumbe. Sister Rosemary is from Uganda, where she works to rehabilitate the child “brides” of the Kony era. Her work has a great impact on the lives of these women and their children and has made her one of Time‘s Top 100 Most Influential People.
While she was here, there was an opportunity for students to meet her. I attended this event. To the left you can see a picture of us together. <-
Sister Rosemary talked about her work with the women and the importance of never giving up before taking questions from those attending the event. It was an intimate scene with all of us sitting on couches and in armchairs around her.
This event was also an opportunity to learn about a trip to Uganda that OU is coordinating with Sister Rosemary’s compound with the help of Pros for Africa. Unfortunately, I am not applying as the dates conflict with another trip. However, if you would like to learn more, you can check out the brochure for the program here.
