Grace Rwaramba, the Neverland office assistant who worked her way up to being the nanny for’Michael Jackson’s kids, has started her own charity.
Rwaramba has just put up a website named for the cause, World Accountability for Humanity. Yes, it’s a mouthful, and a little highfalutin’ considering once you get there. it’s not completely clear what’s going on.
Grace ‘ who’s been a surrogate mother to’Prince, Paris and Blanket Jackson ‘ does reveal a little about herself. Whether or not it’s completely true is another story altogether. But she does say she was born in Uganda, not Rwanda, as previously thought. She was sent to live with older siblings in the U.S. when she was small, and attended a boarding school in Connecticut. She says she received a B.A. in Business Administration from Atlantic Union College.
She did turn up at Neverland circa 1994, where she worked in the office. In short order, she was caring for Prince, Jackson’s first child with’Debbie Rowe. By the time Rowe had Paris, Grace was the full-time nanny.
An email sent through the website to Rwaramba yesterday was not answered. I did ask her how and where and for what purpose she was collecting money.
Most of the information on World Accountability ‘ or WAFH ‘ is vague. It seems to be about “transparency for donors and recipients.” I’m not sure if the donations are transparent, or the people giving or getting the money. In the past, Rwaramba’s critics have said, however, they could see right through her. In columns at foxnews.com, I wrote often about how the nanny isolated Michael Jackson from his family, including his beloved mother. When Jackson appeared drugged or woozy, Rwaramba was often blamed by insiders and observers on the scene for his condition.
It’s certainly interesting that since Grace is gone (to recall an unfortunate movie title), Jackson appears mostly well and is working on his London concerts.
Here’s my idea for Grace, and anyone interested in helping people in the Third World: I’ve put up a link on this page (to the left) for’Kiva. This is a wonderful organization that lends money to Third World entrepreneurs. They make sure the money arrives, and gives a full accounting of where it’s been used. It’s an in-place, working charity. Rather than start yet another new bureaucracy, why not explore Kiva instead?
As for Jackson, he continues rehearsing for his shows.
