Event Details:
In 1989, as a young girl, Rose Nanyonga was forced to leave her family’s village in Uganda. She was alone and, as a female in Uganda without family protection, she had little hope. At the root of her forced departure was a conflict between Rose’s practicing of the Christian faith and her family’s desire for her to take part in witchcraft. Witchcraft, which can include the abhorrent practice of child sacrifice, is practiced in parts of Uganda and had driven a wedge between Rose and her family. Upon leaving her village Rose began a 52 kilometer journey that would take her from her home village of Bamunanika to Kiwoko. Amidst the hopelessness of this journey she found Ian and Robbie Clarke, Irish citizens working to establish better medical care in Uganda. This encounter with the Clarke’s would forever alter the direction of Rose’s life. Under their care, Rose would once again be part of a family. She also began a career in nursing which would lead to her working as Director of Clinical Operations at International Hospital Kampala (IHK) in Uganda. Today Rose balances responsibilities with IHK, a Ph.D program at Yale University, and assistance to numerous organizations including Narrow Road, where she serves as a board member. On July 11, 2009, with the support and company of individuals from 5 different countries, Rose walked the same 52 kilometers from Bamunanika to Kiwoko. This journey, 20 years after her initial footsteps on this path, was the beginning of a new pursuit that took place again on July 9, 2011. On October 6, 2012 Rose will be joined by supporters in walking the same distance in the United States, in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex.
