Who says that one person can’t make a difference? On a 2008 visit to Uganda with Aveda, Karri Rose, Greater Midwest Executive Director of Sales and Education, was so moved by the experience that she found a way to partner with a group of locals to help build a stronger future for women and children. During the trip, Karri came upon the Little Light Center in the village of Namuwongo, a place that was always meant to help and educate the community’s children.
“The center had papyrus ceilings, no doors, concrete floors and no restroom facilities for the children,” Karri recalls.
“And, because funds were so low, the center could only offer the kids one bowl of rice a day, and had to often send them home early as no one was able to watch them.”
