Joseph Rainer Education Foundation Launch

Speech by Juliet Rainer

Speech by Juliet Rainer

On Thursday, November 19, 2009, the Joseph Rainer Education Foundation (JREF) held their official launch at Kampala, Uganda. The launch was purposely scheduled to fall on the anniversary of Joseph Rainer’s birthday (November 19, 1928).  Juliet Rainer offered the welcoming remarks and Helga Rainer, Joseph Rainer’s daughter and the Board Chair, spoke as well. Speeches emphasized Joseph Rainer’s 30 years of quantifiable achievements: the schools that he built still stand; the students he helped are now professionals. With the goal of building on the strong foundation Joseph Rainer left behind, the foundation’s launch offered opportunities to both reflect on the past and imagine the potential that waits in the future. The professionally diverse founding Board intends to partner with a passionate and generous community as well as with the Ugandan government and other development partners in order to realize the vision of sustainable development and global understanding through quality educational opportunities.
