acrina Dodson, a teacher at a Catholic school here in Cleveland, wrote a wonderful tribute about Father Donald Dunson and the Saint Kizito Foundation. Both Father and the Foundation have played an important role in the formation of her confirmation students. The following is the wonderful tribute she shared.

Fr. Don Dunson can be described as being small in stature, but gigantic in heart, mind, spirit and ministry. While to our knowledge, he has never “leapt over buildings in a single bound,” he crosses the ocean to minister to God’s children in East Africa. His priesthood does not end in Africa. He ministers and educates children in the Diocese of Cleveland.

Fr. Don Dunson directed our Confirmation retreat in December. Our confirmandi traveled with him as he described the lives of so many impoverished children in various parts of Africa. One of our students recounted Fr. Don’s story of how a five year old girl was the caregiver of her two year old brother because they did not have parents. This story helped our students to reevaluate their lives and appreciate the blessings in their lives.

Our students really enjoyed meeting Fr. Don. Some of the students said that Fr. Don was filled with the “Spirit;” that he was spiritual and joyful. Others stated that he was funny and kind. They were in amazement about how he is able to reach out to so many children in need. One thing for sure, by his life and example, he “walks the talk.” Thank you, Fr. Don for inspiring us to live the Gospel and to help children in need. God bless you!

Your Generous Contribution Will Help Educate Students in Uganda
Together We Can Make It!

St. Kizito Foundation supports approximately 300 students in their education and life.  We have students at all levels of study, although our primary focus is to provide our participants with sufficient and appropriate education so that they may earn a living and have a successful life. 

Our students are in schools of their choice, based on school and government standards of acceptance.  Students are assisted by St. Kizito counselors and staff in determining the best placement.   

On these pages, we hope to give you a glimpse of the treasure we believe our participants to be.  Enjoy, and feel free to offer communication or words of wisdom that we can forward to Uganda!
