I was able to meet briefly with the current ambassador from Uganda last week following a presentation I attended where he spoke.
The instant I mentioned the work we were doing in ICT4D (Information and Communication Technology for Development) he perked up and showed keen interest, saying ICT was one of his highest priorities.
As we talked, it was fun to tell him about the University of Joensuu and the work being done there, including the work being done in Uganda, the scholarship opportunities open for Ugandans, and the things we are learning from the people and experiences there.
He invited me to come and visit with him next time I am in Washington D.C.
As I’ve been trying to clarify some of my life goals, I keep thinking about previous blog entries and wondering how things might lead me back to Uganda?
