What inspired us to create a foundation?
“Thousands of candles can be lit by a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened.” – Gandhi
This quote talks about happiness but we have adopted it as our mantra for life. We decided to start this Foundation to make a difference in people’s lives. We had different experiences growing up.
While Angella came from a fortunate family, Joseph’s childhood was what would be called humble. He experienced challenges trying to raise tuition to attend school. Together, we came up with the plan to help well performing students who are unable to raise tuition by taking this burden off their plates so they can concentrate on their studies.
God has blessed us to be able to do this and we hope to light thousands of candles in Mengo Senior School.
