We're off and running!

The Spring 2014 semester is officially rolling!  Our group of 18 students, from 6 different countries, have been here for a little over a week and have already jumped into a variety of experiences.  Before coming, students choose their primary context for engagement -- the semester-long homestay, on-campus or social work.  Although students are involved in a variety of overlapping activities and in relationship with a variety of people, our program sees these three categories as the main area for students to engage.  Homestay students have moved in with their families and are learning about family life in Uganda.  On-campus students are living in the dorms and are learning about University life at Uganda Christian University.  Social work students (also living on campus) have begun their practicums and are learning about social work in the Ugandan context.  
We're thankful for their safe arrival and excited about a new semester!  Stay tuned.
