Ugandan Denis Okema to Share His Story


Aquinas Center will host speaker Denis Okema on Tuesday, October 14th at 7PM. Denis’ powerful story follows his experience growing up in Uganda
during a time of conflict where he weathered kidnapping and forced labor, among other challenges. Eventually, Okema came to the United States as a refugee and later enrolled in a Master’s degree program at Chestnut Hill College here in Philadelphia. His presentation will include time for discussion as well as feature an opportunity to purchase fair trade items that support UNIFAT, a school that he sees is making a difference for children in Uganda. All are welcome to this meaningful time of sharing. To read more before attending, click on this story. Upper Nile School flyer
