St Monica’s School in Gulu, Uganda

Posted in Education Projects |Date:January 13th , 2018|Comments: 0

The St Monica’s Girls School in Gulu is a symbol of the sacrifice and work of Sr Rosemary Nyirumbe, the Mother Teresa of Africa, who single-handedly has rescued more than a thousand abducted young girls from forced marriage and rape in the hands of the soldiers of rebels of the Lord’s Resistance Army, a ruthless band of fighters who wrecked havoc and destruction in Northern Uganda. Sr Rosemary was the key note speaker at the Canadian Samaritans of Africa annual African Awareness dinner in 2016 and recipient of our Canadian Samaritans for Africa Award and shared with us her stories and the triumph and courageous spirit of many of these girls whose lives are being sewed back at St Monica’s. Canadian Samaritans for Africa are now raising money to support the women in Sr Rosemary’s home who have formed a strong micro-credit union but have little money to scale up their operation.
