Top three things I’m looking forward to most from the 2020 trip:

  1. Contributing firsthand to a project that Ideba has been supporting for a long time. I’m excited to see what the school looks like and gain a more in depth understanding of how the project has progressed, where it’s going next, and meeting the local community who are a part of the school.
  2. I’m so intrigued by the idea of an entirely foreign landscape with it’s plants and animals. This will be my first time in Africa. I love getting to visit places that are not what I’m used to, and Uganda promises to be a brand new experience.
  3. Finally, I’m looking forward to working on a big step in the project with some of Ideba’s extended family. I was a part of a previous project, working on a house hit by Hurricane Harvey, which was an extremely rewarding experience, so I look forward to the challenge of Uganda 2020 and seeing what the team will accomplish.
