It has been some time since my last blog entry and much has happened in the meantime. Early in January I took the opportunity to travel with Irene and Lily to Kigali in Rwanda for a few days where we enjoyed the opportunity to eat some Italian and French food, quite a welcome change from our diet in Bukoba.

I have also got to know many who live in the villages of Kashozi and Kibengwe, close to Nyaigando, as

Hamjambo? Habari gani? After months of preparation I finally started my journey to Nyaigando on the 6th of December. Having spent the previous week in Kampala, enjoying the opportunity to see a little of Uganda, I met Sister Redempta, Irene and our driver Edmond close to the Roman Catholic Cathedral in Rubaga to begin our 7 hour drive south across the border, towards Bukoba. The contrast between the bustling, chaotic city of Kampala and the tranquil, beautiful countryside, which surrounds it, was

Dear all, As the latest volunteer joining Solidarity with Orphans for 4 months from early December it is with great pleasure and excitement that I can inform you of the two projects which I will be undertaking during my stay in Bukoba. The recent purchase of a delivery truck for the soap production team has been a great step forward in the process of optimising the management of this activity and should now allow us to resolve some of the other challenges which we are currently facing. Following
