Alicia Keys appoints Owori as ambassador

Fashion designer Sylvia Owori is grinning from ear to ear after having been appointed an African ambassador for Alicia Keys’ Keep A Child Alive Foundation.  Keys was in the Uganda about four years ago to get a first-hand feel of the impact of her organisation, which helps children infected or affected by HIV/Aids.

“My role is going to be fundraising for the organisation. People shouldn’t come all the way from New York to help us yet we can also help ourselves. From now on, all my energy is going to be focused on raising funds for Keep A Child Alive,” Owori gave us the sqoop.

“The message came directly from Alicia Keys, so I’m humbled to be recognised by her,” Owori said.
“I have not been involved in charity all these years, I have been looking for a worthwhile cause to support and this is something I’m proud to be associated with. It’s the foundation that I’m going to put all my efforts in,” she added.

Owori joins a list of other women of repute as Keep A Child Alive ambassadors including super model Iman, Queen Latifah, Serena Williams and Jennifer Hudson.
