The Uganda Project 2016 – Day 7

We were all quite pumped on Saturday morning, looking forward to a run around with the Kids for Africa group.

The day began with a two hour drive from Kampala to Mayindo Village, picking Leslie from The Real Uganda and Tony from Hopeline along the way. Our…

The Uganda Project 2016 – Day 3

Well, in case any of you were in any doubt, its official. The girls are more resilient than the boys. I suspect that this isn’t ‘news’ for many but the fact that Lachie and I have been the first to succumb to sickness in Uganda seems to give it more credence. Lachie’s unfortunately in a much worse state than me and didn’t join us on our road trip today. We’re visiting one of our new projects today. The Junior Landcare…

The Uganda Project 2016 – Days 1 & 2

So, this is Africa! We’ve landed in Uganda, our home for the next two weeks. Two exciting, enriching weeks of new sounds, sights and experiences that will, I’m sure, take us all out of our comfort zones and open our eyes to opportunities beyond our normal. For me, coming on this trip feels like a rite of passage to being part of the Kain Lawyers’ family. Working in a business that cares as much about creating opportunities for its team…

The Uganda Project – Day 7

Day 7 Video Diary Nicole Wilson-Moore, Kain Commercial and Corporate Lawyers Day seven of the Uganda Project and it’s difficult to believe we’ve been here for a full week and done so much.
