In less than 24 hours, the interns of Davidson College and University of Florida will be headed to Masaka, Uganda for 6 weeks to begin our project with the students of Hope Academy. Leading up to the trip both chapters have been hard at work planning the project and communicating with our partner organization, Uganda Rural Fund (URF). Our project’s focus is on creating a business education program at Hope Academy. Students will be putting what they learn in the class room into practice: each student will receive a goat that he or she must take care of and learn how to milk.
Our goal is that the project be self- sustaining. When a baby goat is born it will be given to another child to be taken care of, thus continuing the program. Through our project, we hope to work with the students of Hope academy and the larger community to create a new source of income through selling goats, goat cheese, and goat milk. We are all very excited for the project and look forward to making meaningful connections with the Hope Academy students.
