I see the Uganda 2020 trip based on 4 themes: Connect, Learn, Support & Thrive.

  1. Connect: Connecting and collaborating with the students of Mpondwe Secondary School and other locals
  2. Learn: Getting out of my own bubble (city, country, and mindset) and experiencing daily life through other perspectives
  3. Support and Thrive: Supporting the creation of a safe, comfortable and sustainable environment for the students to thrive in their education and for a sustainable future
