Journey to the Pearl of Africa | Nourish International

May 15, 2014 | Posted in 2014, Duke, Penn State, Summer Projects, Uganda | By

Hello beautiful people!

In less then 48 hours, the interns from Penn State and Duke Universities will be embarking to Uganda, the Pearl of Africa. We will mainly be working in the Nakalanga Village, Magamaga and Wairaka Town, but will be residing with host families in the Jinja District. Community Concerns Uganda has a lot of great projects in place and we are really excited to get started. We will be helping implement the Groups Savings Program and the Adolescent Sexual Reproductive Health project, as well as help in the development of the Chicken and Pit Latrine Projects that have not quite taken off due to limited funds. Although for many of us Africa will be a first, we have a very diverse team with a number of interests that we believe will greatly enhance the efforts of the greater purpose of CCUg and Nourish International in general. Not only do we have the opportunity to tangibly make a difference in the villages of Uganda, we also have the chance to immerse ourselves in a completely different culture and gain a perception on life that many people may not have even known existed. By keeping this in mind, we will view this experience as not just one of service, but as one of learning with great potential to reap priceless rewards.

Although communication may be difficult at first, we hope to do our best in keeping all our supporters in the loop. We will constantly be adding pictures as well as blogging regularly on our progress. If any of you have any resources you’d like to share that might help any of the above projects please feel free to comment below. We appreciate all your love and support!
