And voila, first picture of me in Uganda. This was taken last week when I was visiting a project in Kampala.

This is the HEMFRIA-UG team. HEMFRIA stands for Helping My Friend Association of Uganda. It was started by a very bright young man, Stephen (on my left, with the glasses), who is still in high school.

The group generates income by making and selling recycled paper bags and they use the money to do things like computer literacy courses. They also have an agricultural branch as well as environmental one.

It was great to hang out and take pictures and they insisted I pose with them.
