April is planting season so it was a particularly busy month for Mvule Project staff. They delivered seedlings to 24 villages for planting! Each of these communities are investing in their future and learning to work together to accomplish great things in their village.

During May the Water Rehabilitation staff solidified a partnership with Busia District. The district has 36 boreholes that need to be repaired, which is an overwhelming number. Kibo Group has agreed to work on a list of 15 specific boreholes so the district government can dedicate resources to the remaining 21.

Sometimes the work we do in Uganda has results that are easy to see, like when a new well is drilled. But more often there are small conversations and events that lead to change. For example, recently Ida went to Kyani Village to resolve a conflict between two couples. A lady had left her current husband to go back to her first husband. This left her current husband bitter. They realized their mistakes and asked for forgiveness. It is hard to know what will happen in this situation, but it is a great example of the way Ida is part of people’s lives and is able to help people through hard situations. These small conversations add up, and over time there is change in a community.
