A Fond Farewell…

We are now cherishing our final few days as the Uganda Action Team 2017/18. We have been reflecting quite a lot in these past few days, thinking back to all of the laughs we’ve shared and have very mixed emotions on finishing our time as Action Teamers. We spent a restful few days at IMC […]

Three examples of ways we have been monitoring and limiting our water usage is through standing in a bucket when showering, taking “bore […]

The Twelve Days of (Ugandan) Christmas

Disclaimer: this blog was intended to be posted before the New Year, however we got here before you all and were waiting for you to catch up (also the internet failed us!). A post-Christmas, pre-New Year update for you all. Sorry it isn’t chronological, but it gives a very numerical outline of our celebrations! One […]
