A Special Trip to Uganda

The Uganda Partners team for this 10th Anniversary visit represented the UK, the US, and Australia.

The former Archbishop of Canterbury, George Carey, and his wife Eileen were here when UCU was founded. The Rt. Rev. Ray Smith and his wife, Shirley work with UCU Partners in Australia. The Rt. Rev. James Stanton from Dallas, and wife Diane have been long time supporters of UCU, and Diane is Executive Director of Uganda Partners USA.

The rest of the team came from all parts of the US.

Landing in Entebbe and starting from Kampala (see map below), the group travelled to the far southwest, Kabale. Some went on to Queen Elizabeth National Park, and Mburo Park. All took part in the graduation at UCU in Mukono. The photo at left is at the Colline Hotel in Mukono. (Click here for a full-size copy of photo.)
