10 Days!!

BrianUganda 2015

This big trip was conceived as part of me turning 50. When I thought of turning 50 I felt many things – I feel fortunate to have so many wonderful people in my life and I feel loved. I feel that the best thing I can do for my 50th year celebration is to do what I love most – spend time with friends, spend some quiet reflective time, and to close the year by giving back to others. I hope you will join me on this special adventure.

I will be part of a group of 10 continuously rotating in-country volunteers to help the Ugandan Batwa people formerly of the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park look beyond today for a better quality of life through developing a sustainable and non-encroaching agrarian infrastructure including micro farms. The local community where I will work is trying to build pride in the protection of Bwindi by benefitting from its conservation through income, quality education, improved agricultural practices and in general, promoting better and more enjoyable ways of life.
