I met Shakira while visiting

In the spirit of International Women’s Day, I wanted to share this picture of Nakayima Shakira, a 12 year old girl in Uganda that I personally gave a full scholarship to, all the way through secondary school (which you have to pay for in Uganda) and University for her law degree.

When her father died, her father’s family kicked her mother and her off of the property so that they could have it. This is common there. She wants to study law to help women defend themselves.

The icing on the cake is that I was born and raised a Christian and she is Muslim. So, a Christian is sending a Muslim girl to what we know as college. This, is how I believe the world should be. There would be a lot less fighting if we would all just take care of each other.

One of Lightforce One’s guiding principles is that our help is NOT contingent on one’s spiritual or political beliefs. If you are not hurting anybody, and you need help, we are here to help with long term solutions.
