Robert's Village

Already unlocked? for access

Robert Serunjogi lost most of his family members during the brutal slayings of Uganda’s Idi Amin administration. After fleeing his home country, Robert started working as a janitor at Colorado State University (CSU). While working on campus, Robert met CSU student Laura Schreck and struck up a conversation. This chance meeting led to the pair working together and raising $90,000 to build a school for the displaced children in Robert’s hometown of Buweyeo. In 2019, Robert and Laura visited the school and witnessed the village in a period of rebuilding after civil war.
