A Brighter Future

April 01, 2022

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.

So awesome!

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.

Kigali is a beautiful hilly city, quite green and very clean. People are super nice and eager to tell you about their history, including the genocide. Rwanda does not allow plastic bags, so, unlike other African countries, there is no plastic flying around or laying on the streets.
