About Wilson Agaba

I was born in a poor family. When I reached five years old, my mother separated from my father and left me to live with him. My mother was a poor woman and she used to live in a small house! I used to cry with her, when I saw her living in such a poor house, I used to think that one day maybe the animals would come and grab her from that little house.

I faced many challenges during that time. Then I started living with my aunt, and my life was still hard because she used to treat me badly, but I had no option. So I decided to make the best of it by giving her love and taking care of her. Throughout my life I did that, I gave my love even when I was treated badly.

When I reached seven years old, I started visiting my mother, and she started teaching me how to love. She encouraged me to create more friends, she said that the friends will help me in future, and she taught me that love is the only solution in all. I promised my mother that I will teach people about love and I promised her I would create friends as she encouraged me to do.

When I grew up I started seeking for friends on websites, and I met some very good friends who taught a lot about love. One of them, David Truman, became my teacher and helped me so much.

I started teaching love in schools and communities in Uganda, because Uganda is a country which needs love. People are doing selfish things like kidnapping, fighting, stealing. Parents are not responsible to their families etc. If you love someone, that would stop you from being mean to someone.

I used to tell people that love heals; love brings joy, teamwork and compassion. We all need love and we all feel love. People were so happy because all people were thirsty for love. I saw people change because of love.

I always praise my mother for the wonderful work she did for me, to teach me the importance of love.  And I am eternally grateful to David Truman for showing me what true love is, and how to love people well. I now live with good friends, and I am learning more about love everyday.

  8. Wilson,

    What an amazing place you have created here in your blog! The message of love cannot reach across the world without the efforts of many individuals to send it out into the world. Your messages are filled with love, and there is much to admire here. Your name means, “giver,” and you give so splendidly to your readers.

    In our modern “technologically enhanced” world, we often forget the most basic laws of the universe. To love one another, to be kind to others, and to inspire love in all that we do. You present us with proof that in doing so, we can change the world.

    Your kindness in acknowledging my writing is much appreciated, and I hope you will continue to inspire your readers to not only GIVE love and SHARE love, but also to strive to be worthy of RECEIVING love.

    With respect and admiration….John H.

    • John H, thank you so much for the wonderful comment. I loved your about page and the great work you are doing is amazing. I grew up in a hard life and Love was the solution to pass through all challenges. That’s why I committed to share love with other people and to fulfill the meaning of my name GIVER.

      I agree with you, true it’s also important to receive. We need to receive love to stay healthy and to keep going on. True love is a circle, and it goes on forever as long as we both give and receive with each other.

      • Absolutely, you are right. It almost seems we have a tendency as humans to seek out complexity and difficulty; taking pathways much longer than Life ever intended us to walk. There’s a reason LOVE only has one syllable and four letters… it’s meant to be a simple thing; easy enough for all us us collectively to achieve and share…

        Like

      • Yes, you are right. Our lives are complicated and full of problems. I think the reason we make things complicated is to avoid simply loving, because love is unselfish. Maybe you’d like to do something else, but when you love you do what would benefit your friends. When people do what they want to do without considering other people’s feelings, it makes problems. Life gets complicated. Each person knows the importance of love and we all have love. For life to be simple we have to make love the most important thing.

  44. Jambo, Greetings, Wilsonagaba! How nice of you to visit my blog–thank you! I came to see WHO you are—It is so nice to meet you! I was in Uganda, in Kampala, many, many years ago, in 1975. I now live in Wisconsin, in the middle of the USA, directly under Canada. The photo of Uganda is very different from what I remembered it then. YOU are amazing! It is so wonderful that you not only speak about love but live love! When I read how kind and loving you were to your Aunt, despite her unkindness towards you—that is a person who truly loves! What else have we to offer this world, than LOVE? You are right! I wish you much success with your blog and the mission you have chosen for yourself! Blessings to you, Wilsonagaba! Kwa-heri! Asanti sana!
