Denis and I are starting a blog to document our road back to Uganda. We are opening a community center in Mpumudde, Uganda and starting a non profit to fund it and run it. We are inspired by friends of ours who have struggled with literacy and therefore suffered in education. So we plan to open a community center equipped with a library and a computer lab as a resource for the entire community to use.
We were inspired by kids in the community who have almost no access to books at all. Kids who are struggling in school in the subjects that require reading because they have been raised to speak a language other than the one they are taught in or they have been raised not to prioritize education and literacy because there are more immediate needs at home.
We hope to use this blog as a space to share glimpses of our Ugandan community, our American community, and of ourselves as well.
Thanks for reading!
