Casis Elementary 5th Grade Leadership Event
Gilbert participates in a 5th Grade Leadership event at Casis Elementary in Austin, Texas, in February 13, 2019. He will speak to inspire kids to find their passion and work to make a career of it. Gilbert will also speak about the importance of philanthropy. Casis is a synergistic educational environment that combines the efforts of a dedicated and talented faculty, children eager to learn, and very active parents.
Sometimes the world can be an unfair and cruel place. Yet even amongst the worst of circumstances and in the midst of unfathomable tragedies, hope and happiness prevail.
Gilbert Tuhabonye knows this.
Gilbert has endured great suffering in his life. Yet his message isn’t one of sorrow or anger; it’s one of joy, faith and forgiveness. Driven by a desire to unleash the potential of anyone who seeks it – in running and in life – Gilbert’s indomitable spirit moves everyone he meets. He inspires others to believe that they can achieve anything, regardless of the circumstances or obstacles. He is a living reminder that humanity is greater than the sum of all the world’s injustices. And he is proof that the work of a few – or even just one – can make this world, our world, a better place.
