A Noble Journey
On our way back home from the north to Kampala we stopped by a place called Saint Monica's Tailoring School in Gulu, Uganda.
During my final week in Uganda, I went to the northern part of the country with Steve Swigert, agricultural economics consultant at the Noble Research Institute, and a group that came over from the U.S. to help build silos at Omer Farm.
My husband came to visit for my last two weeks in Uganda.
This week I want to highlight a few of the farmworkers I have gotten to know over the past couple of months.
A woman who works at Watoto's Fabrication Center has a brother who is soon to be married and thought it would be fun for me to see a traditional Ugandan wedding celebration.
The past couple of weeks I've had the opportunity to help deliver food from the farm to the villages.
After my time in the north, I came back to Kampala and quickly got started helping with the different farm activities going on at Watoto.
Our very last day up north was spent at a childrens home called Otino Waa. We got the opportunity to teach a science class to a group of students there.
On one of our final days in the north, we visited the home of a woman who will be part of an agricultural training program.
It is easy to get caught up in the process of development and forget the "why" behind it. Seeing the kids reminds you just why you are here.
