In Their Own Words: A Ugandan Community Transformed
By Casey Neese August 16, 2011
Shamim Okolloh is a graduate student at the Clinton School of Public Service. She is doing her service project with Heifer Uganda, collaborating with the Mbale Secondary School in eastern Uganda to develop a curriculum that incorporates sustainable agriculture principles.
Recently, she shared this video on her blog where Katey, a Heifer project participant, talks about the ways the project has improved the community's health and educational attainment and led to many families moving from poverty to self reliance.
Here's what Shamim had to say about her friendship with Katey...
I met Katey during a Heifer International Uganda project participants Passing on the Gift (POG) ceremony. Ive seen Katey again during a training of trainers workshop held by the Heifer Uganda biogas team she is such a joy to be around and gives the warmest hugs.
