Andrew is delighted to invite you to:
RAK LOUISVILLE Summer Hangout 2017
One Whole Day
With some RAK Louisville friends
OUR KEYNOTE SPEAKER:
Mallory Fundora, 17, of Clarksville, Tenn., a junior at Rossview High School, began raising money and gathering supplies for orphans and other vulnerable children in Uganda in 2011, an effort that has since evolved into a nonprofit organization that currently feeds 450 Ugandan children each weekday and pays the school expenses of 169 students. When Mallory got the chance to meet members of a Ugandan orphans’ choir touring the U.S. in 2010, she was struck by how happy they were, even though they had so little. She explained that not long after, while working on her Christmas wish list, “I looked around my room and realized there was nothing I needed, but there was so much that children in Africa needed.”
At first, Mallory worked to support existing organizations that provide necessities for African children. She held fundraisers, conducted supply drives, wrote a blog, and spoke at events. On a trip to Uganda in 2012, she met with village leaders and visited schools to learn firsthand about the needs of children there. By the following year, Mallory’s own organization, called “Project Yesu,” was recruiting donors from around the world to sponsor the education of poor children in Uganda, and in 2014 inaugurated a program to provide nutritious breakfasts each weekday. More recently, Mallory partnered with another organization to build a playground in the Ugandan village where she is focusing her efforts.
