I’m a 23 year-old gal spending a year in rural Uganda as the volunteer coordinator for the Arlington Academy of Hope.

From what I understand, I’m going to be living in pretty basic accommodations; running water and internet are completely absent, and electricity is sporadic.  I’m not generally the outdoorsy, rugged type, but I enjoy a good challenge.

This blog is a way for me to keep my family and friends updated, and to share my  experiences. Since I don’t have internet access in the village, I’ll only be able to post once or twice a month, but I’ll try to make them worth your while. I’d love to hear people’s thoughts so please leave plenty of comments.
