My younger sister and father traveled to Uganda this summer to work with the Arise Foundation. They both speak so highly of their experience in Uganda and with Arise. Since they both returned home they have maintained in regular contact with the program director, Jude and Arise. They are both very excited to know that Arise has been doing so much since they left. My sister and my dad would frequently sit down with Jude and other Arise staff and brainstorm different ways Arise could build a presence in their community and new projects they can tackle. Two recommendations, a community garden and the creation of a program for the street children in Kampala, are already underway!
