A Batwa Youth’s Hope For Her People
We are dedicating this space to Joyce, our founder's adopted daughter from Uganda. She created this "Public Service Announcement" for a 10th grade English class and she wants to share it with the world.
As a volunteer from the U.S., I can never fully grasp what it is like to live there, and I am guessing as a reader and follower of our organization, it's the same for most of you. in the video below, she will tell you firsthand her experience, giving us a glimpse into the Batwa's reality from a perspective of a child now growing up in America.
Joyce, thank you for sharing your story. You inspire us all at Redemption Song Foundation with your eloquence and resilience.
As Joyce's favorite quote goes, “I am not African because I was born in Africa but because Africa was born me.”
