Product Overview

"The Price of Stones is an inspiring account of turning tragedy into hope for others."---President Jimmy Carter

"This is a remarkable story about how Twesigye Jackson Kaguri transformed his suffering-the loss of several of his family members to AIDS-into action. Kaguri is a wonderful example of one person's using educational success resposibly and with purpose to benefit the lives of those less fortunate. If you've ever doubted your ability to impact the lives of others, read this story and it will change your mind and heart."---Ishmael Beah, author of A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier

"Twesigye Jackson Kaguri is a force to be reckoned with. He is a social entreprenur who had a vision and made it a reality. The Price of Stones tells the amazing story of how, with courage and deep faith, he has brought the gift of education to children orphaned by AIDS in rural Uganda. I could not put the book down and cried through many parts of it."---Maya Ajmera, founder and president, The Global Fund for Children

"Many Americans feel disconnected from the AIDS pandemic occurring on a continent so far away. Twesigye Jackson Kaguri, in his inspirational book The Price of Stones, shortens that distance, making the effects of this disease personal by giving names and faces to AIDS orphans. But more significant, many of Uganda's discarded children have been given hope and, even more important, love as students at the Nyaka AIDS Orphans School. Twesigye Jackson's life illustrates beautifully that one person can make a difference."---Ron Hall, coauthor of Same Kind of Different as Me

"By page 23, I was hooked, By page 33, I had tears in my eyes, the first of many times as I read this impassioned account of one man's humble yet courageous efforts in confronting the grim legacy of the ruthless serial killer, AIDS, in his Ugandan village. If The Price of Stones doesn't break your heart over the plight of AIDS orphans in Africa, see a cardiologist immediately. You may need a transplant."---Lynn Vincent, New York Times bestselling writer of Same Kind of Different as Me and Going Rogue: An American Life
