Joan traveled across the globe to Uganda, not for a sightseeing trip, but to volunteer at a school in a rural village.
She is a part of an awesome group that built a school in the village of Kassunga. The school has a well, solar power, and many classrooms and bathrooms.
With over 600 enrolled students, there sure are a lot of smiles to go around!
Her group’s mission is all about creating a better future for the children of the village. Through education and a safe environment, they will grow up with the skills and knowledge to improve their village, take care of their families, and enjoy a better quality of life.
And Joan still managed to bring us back fabric to make totes out of! Double awesome!
Here’s to bringing out your inner child & to feeling good - because after all, it’s Friday.

P.S. Plus another tote Uganda love. Traveler Dave is also a part of the awesome group working to improve the futures of children in Kassunga, Uganda!
Traveler Patricia recently visited Tanzania as part of a service project.
She volunteers for the Kisangaji Project, a non-profit that focuses on helping meet the needs of the school and local infrastructure in the village of Kisangaji in Tanzania.
