A new member visited – and stayed

By David Kangye How do I tell this great story? I will try. One thing about telling the 4040 visit to Happy Times Children’s school is of a longing desire to be fulfilled. It has been quite a while since I learnt of this organization and how it runs its activities. When Esther Kalenzi invited […]

Still here

It is said the two most important days in your life are the day you were born and the day you find out why. I ‘accidentally’ found out my purpose at 24, as a passionate, curious, naive and mostly unstoppable woman. On February 27 2012 when I opened that 40-40 page, I could not have […]
