Purposeful Penny's Donation to Bright Kids Uganda

The donation ceremony and guest lecture by Brook White, President of the Bright Kids Uganda Foundation, on Monday November 7th, 2011, was another milestone for us. Professor White's photos and stories were so inspiring and beautiful. She emphasized and requested that students and faculty at GSPIA spread the words of Bright Kids Uganda Foundation's cause and activities.

After the lecture, there was a brief introduction of Purposeful Penny's work, which was followed by the donation ceremony.
