Summary
"At least 5,000 children live on the streets of Uganda's capital city of Kampala. Some forget the names of their villages. The youngest may not know the names of their parents. But Gladys Kalibbala--part journalist, part detective, part Good Samaritan--does not hesitate to dive into difficult or even dangerous situations to aid a child. Author of a newspaper column called 'Lost and Abandoned,' she is a resource that police and others turn to when they stumble across a stranded kid with a hidden history"--Amazon.com
Summary
A portrait of journalist, humanitarian and self-taught detective Gladys Kalibbala describes her high-risk efforts to connect missing and castaway children in Uganda to their families, tracing the influence of her "Lost and Abandoned" newspaper column and her dream of providing safe homes and livelihoods for thousands of street kids
