Groundbreaking in Namambo Primary School

What’s up guys?  Sorry for not posting. As I mentioned in my last blog, I have been in Mpigi and there is no electricity or Internet. The first day in Mpigi we went and did the groundbreaking at Namabo Primary School.  The kids there were great.  They danced and sang for Madam Amelia and us, and we had a great […]

Important Meetings!

Hello again!  Sorry for not posting yesterday, I didn’t have a lot of time to write.  But it was a very important day for RUFC.   So, because my mom had to go for a meeting, we went shopping at a local market.  I bought a couple shirts for my partners and an extra one for you guys.  Not sure how […]

Arriving in Kampala (after a day in Istanbul)

We finally made it!!! Oh man I am tired!  The day began in Istanbul.  I woke up at 3:00 in the morning and then fell in and out of sleep until 6.  We packed our bags and headed down to get breakfast.  After a filling meal, Mom, Ian, Grandma, my mom’s colleague Larissa, and I went to explore the old […]

Pit Stop in Istanbul

How’s it going everyone?  We are having a little interruption in our journey.   We missed our layover flight in Istanbul, Turkey (quite a bit more glamorous, though).  So we intend to make the most of it, and be tourists for a day.  Its freezing over here, I was expecting the warm equatorial weather of Uganda.  Besides that it’s amazing.  The […]

Setting My Goals

Hello everybody!  Ethan Zohn’s talk on Tuesday got me thinking about my goals for the future. Ethan spoke of two kinds of goals, goals for the organization, and for you as a person.  I’ll start by speaking about my goals as a foundation. In the next year, I hope to have finished working on my first project, which means I […]

Taking the Mic…

Happy October everybody!  I had a very busy September! Between the 2 speeches I gave – one at PCY and the other at the LAPFC opening ceremonies – my yard sale, and launching the Buy-A-Brick campaign at PCY, we have made quite a bit of money the last few weeks. My two public speaking experiences last month were great and I […]
