At this time last year we were in Uganda! This trip was the most amazing experience of my life, and I’ll never be the same because of it!
…I was heading back home from Uganda. It’s hard to believe it’s been so long!
I must say there hasn’t been a day that Uganda and it’s people have not been in my thoughts. Once you go to a place like that you can’t ever forget it!
After watching this video it only caused me to become more and more “homesick” for Uganda:

All I want to do is go back! And hopefully someday soon I will no longer have to just imagine being there again, but I will actually be in the land I have grown to love once again!!
::32 million people live in Uganda.::
::50% of the population is under 15. That means 16 million are under 15. WOW. 16 MILLION!?::
::Only 30% of the children attend school::
::1/3 people don’t have access to clean water::
::8 doctors for every 100,000 people. 100,000 people?!::
::in 2006, at least 36% of Ugandans were living on less than a $1 a day::
::Uganda is roughly the same size as Oregon::
::There are at least 2.5 MILLION orphans::
So why Uganda???
