Uganda 2009 – The Inspiration

In August, 2009 I first had the opportunity to go to Uganda and stay with Constance and Dr. Asiki for the month. I was extremely excited to see Uganda and get a first-hand idea of what was going on in the country – and a vision of what else I could be doing to help. For a country plagued with so many problems, I was taken aback by the beauty of the country itself and of the people that I met. I came back with renewed determination and a strong belief that funding education for females was a right thing to do. It would be impossible to capture the beauty of the country in pictures but here are a few of the shots we took while I was there in 2009. – Jenny Benson
