Thank you and Goodnight

06 Aug


Today is my last day at the Gulu Disabled Persons Union, and also the last day that I am likely to be around a reliable internet connection, so I think this is where I will say my good-byes. I have so many people to thank, and not enough words to properly express myself.

Thank you to the Advocacy Project and Survivor Corps for giving me the opportunity to intern for their organizations. I have learned a lot and am grateful for your guidance this summer.

Thank you to the great people at the Gulu Disabled Persons Union and Caritas Counselling Centre. I have been humbled by your dedication to improving the lives of your clients and by your efforts to help advance positive social change in Northern Uganda.

Thank you to all of my supporters who so generously donated to help get me here and support me financially through the summer.

Thank you to my friends, family and anyone else who happened to stumble across this blog. I appreciate the time you spent learning about the issues here in Northern Uganda. Knowledge is powerful and is the first step of progress.

You can learn more about the work of both Survivor Corps and the Advocacy Project by visiting their respective websites

Thank you and God bless.

    I tried grabbing an RSS Feed for the blogsite but it is not showing up in Google Chrome. Does anyone have any suggestions?

  • Cheers for posting this review. I’m decidedly frustrated with struggling to homework out pertinent and intelligent commentary on this issue. Everybody today goes to the very far extremes to possibly drive property their viewpoint that either: everyone else in the planet is wrong, or two that everyone but them does not really understand the situation. Many kudos for your concise, pertinent insight.
