If Time 100 was the first time you were hearing about Sister Rosemary Nyirumbe, then you should consider liking her Facebook page. She asked the crowd on April 29th at the Time 100 gala, “Everyone in the United States is familiar with the term lost boys.

Forest Whitaker wrote well about her:
She gives hope for young women scarred by war.
In Gulu, Uganda, Sister Rosemary has made it her mission to provide within an orphanage a home, a shelter for women and girls whose lives have been shattered by violence, rape and sexual exploitation.
For girls who were forcibly enlisted as child soldiers, Sister Rosemary has the power to rekindle a bright light in eyes long gone blank. For women with unwanted children born out of conflict, she allows them to become loving mothers at last.
The traumas she heals are unfathomable, but the reach of her love is boundless.
And definitely listen to her speech
