Colin McCrory, Aaron Forrest, Jenny Hamilton, and Lily Cocoran are members of Tufts’ Engineers Without Borders (EWB) doing project implementation in Mbale, Uganda.
Hey everyone! After three days of extensive travel we have finally
arrived safe in Mbale. The enormous malls and extravagant light shows
in Dubai contrasted with the bustling bus station in Kampala has left
us a bit shocked. Currently we are shopping for supplies in the city.
Dave and Aaron are out searching for solar panels, while Lily, Jenny
and I are with Rebecca shopping for food. We are extremely excited to
see Shilongo and meet the villagers.We’re surprised that Lily and I
haven’t been hit by a boda boda yet. We’ll keep you updated on our
work in the village!
