"THE PRICE OF STONES is an inspiring account of turning tragedy into hope for others."
- President Jimmy Carter
About The Price of Stones
In Uganda, where HIV / AIDS has affected almost a third of the adult population, almost two million children have been orphaned by the epidemic—including the nieces and nephews of a man named Twesigye Jackson Kaguri.
THE PRICE OF STONES: Building a School for My Village by Twesigye Jackson Kaguri with Susan Urbanek Linville, is the story of the building of an extraordinary school for these orphans and the astonishing effort by one man to raise an entire community out of poverty and hopelessness. Weaving together stories that illuminate key life-changing moments in Jackson’s youth with the remarkable account of the challenges he faces as he overcomes countless complications in building the school, THE PRICE OF STONES is an unforgettable page-turner that demonstrates that one person with a dream can change lives and make the world a better place.
