“Hendricks Chapel is pleased to present Aaron Kintu Moses as part of a wider inter-religious collaboration of local communities of faith,” says Tiffany Steinwert, dean of Hendricks Chapel. “It is an opportunity for us to gather with one another as we grapple with both the gifts and challenges of religious pluralism around the globe.”
Kintu Moses has been the director of education of the Abayudaya primary and high schools since 2003. The schools educate and feed 700 Jewish, Muslim and Christian children studying together in peace.
His presentation will include an overview of his work with the child nutrition project, public health education and women’s empowerment programs, and ongoing classroom, library, dormitory and other school construction; as well as the village microfinance, crafts, music CD, coffee and eco-tourism self-help projects.
Kintu Moses will also share music from the Ugandan Jewish community.
