MSU Extension Spotlight

A Social Entrepreneur Among Us

If you need some inspiration, I’d encourage you to read about Jackson Kaguri in yesterday’s Lansing State Journal (see link below)

Jackson is a development officer in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, and one of the most optimistic and positive people I know. We keep him busy raising funds for programs in the college, including MSU Extension, but in his free time he has demonstrated his entrepreneurial acumen by developing a school for children who were orphaned by AIDS in his home country of Uganda. The school is not only helping young people prepare for adulthood, but also serving community needs with a water system and a central point for community organization and communication.

When we talk about developing entrepreneurs as one of our five strategic priorities, we need to keep our minds open to the varieties of entrepreneurship. That includes social entrepreneurs like Jackson who are willing to take risks and pursue visions that generate benefits for others. Thanks to Jackson for being such a powerful model for us.

Me with some children at Kutamba, our second school

I just returned from a 10 day visit to Uganda. My first trip to Nyaka and Kutamba was truly memorable. The courage and spirit of these children struck me very deeply. Nyaka and Kutamba are truly havens for these children who have been through so much at such a young age.

There are so many needs and so much work to do. However, if we work together we can accomplish so much. All of these children are deserving of our love. Please consider helping in any way you can.

Smiles are everywhere at Nyaka!
