It has been the first time that our dear colleague Susanne, project manager at Fairventures Worldwide, visited the project area in Uganda.
Together with Johannes and a team that had arrived from Germany in the meantime, the journey continued from Kampala to Hoima to the Sankt Simons Peter’s Vocational Training Center.
Financed by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and supported by the Leitz company, young people at Sankt Simon Peter’s Vocational and two other schools are taught a new course on the topics of forestry and agroforestry.
In three intensively experienced weeks in Uganda I got an insights into our projects and the life of the Ugandan people.
What I have seen and experienced has fascinated me:
Our dedicated team, which is enthusiastic about the project and brings in knowledge and commitment; encounters with friendly, humorous locals; the decelerated rhythm of life. And last but not least the feeling of creating a long-term contribution to environmental protection and to the rehabilitation of life supporting systems.
