I have been a volunteer at CSI since 2014. In Uganda, we have done amazing work to make a difference for women, children, and the youth. My favorite programs are free cervical cancer screening and the Safina program for orphans and vulnerable children. I was able to travel to Dar es Salaam and be part of #CSI5Anniversary on April 6th. I feel appreciated and valued at CSI, and was very happy to get my certificate from Dr. Jakaya Kikwete.

CSI's I Can Read program for young children in Baltimore is a great addition to ensure every child has a great preK start regardless of where they live. No child left behind. By working with children living in shelters to strengthen their reading skills, CSI is preparing them to succeed beyond preK. #CSIBaltimore #ICanRead #ICanWrite #EarlyChildhoodEducation #Baltimore
