Organized by: abena kwakye

Aber (Melissa Hopfinger) and Oteka (John Magee) are headed back to Uganda to continue some of the work we have started in past years, and also to start some new journeys. This is a shorter trip, but we hope to make a successful impact mostly because the people we know in Gulu and Kampala already do wonderful things in education for the students of Uganda. Oteka will be reconnecting with students from past schools and also working to distribute a set of solved math practice problems to schools and students. The student always outperforms the teacher and Aber has done this in spades. I cannot keep up with all the wonderful things she has done especially working with the Jesuits and their school, Ocer Campion. The exchange rate is now more than double what Oteka saw when he first started going to Uganda. This is not good for our friends the Ugandans, but it does mean your dollars can have a big impact. We will use some of the money for our expenses, but more than half of the money raised will be left with our friends in different programs in Uganda. Your support for Oteka has been amazing in the past, and now he has a sidekick that is really better than him. Apwoyo Matek (Thank You)
