Can sustainability and girls’ education co-exist in the developing world?

That’s the theme of our 7th annual conference, which will take place on November 8th, 2012.  Roxanne Joyal, co-founding member of Free the Children, and Jackson Kaguri, founder of the Nyaka Aids Orphans Project in Uganda, are this year’s speakers.

Free the Children (FTC) is the world’s largest network of children helping children, supporting them in 45 developing countries, providing education and other programs to more than 55,000 children every day.  FTC has partnered with 60 million girls on past projects in Kenya and India. Here’s Roxanne, speaking about her work:

The Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project was founded as a response to the devastating effects of AIDS in Jackson Kaguri’s hometown of Nyakagyezi, Uganda, and provides free education, a farm and nutrition program, medical facilities and support for children who have lost one or both parents to HIV/AIDS.  Here’s Jackson, speaking about his work:
