Monitoring Trip to Uganda 2013

The visit to Uganda was enlightening, as the people in the Lukodi district have really embraced the project. Cropping is on the improve, but storage remains an issue that needs addressing. Many children are in school, but many more are missing out due to the inability of their parents to pay school fees. Access to medical facilities is a big issue, with lack of transport and distance to the nearest facility being key issues. Clean water is still limited, with some people walking up to 2km to get clean water. There is still much work to do….but everybody is very keen!
