On the road with Weema

Last week I was able to get out of the capital, and away from my computer screen. Weema International's Executive Director, Liz McGovern was kind enough to invite me a long on trip to Kembata-Tembaro. As expected, the trip was a productive one. Waking at 6 and working til usually past night fall, Liz, Corey, Teddy, Josi and I accomished quite a bit. 

To list just a few of the activities...

-3 WeCare solar-suitcases were installed at three seperate rural health centers in KT.

-A new site in Mudula (not far from the previous site) was agreed on for the Degale library. Weema is currently finalizing the agreement with the local government.

-Site visits were made and key healthcare personal were met at a variety of healthcare centers throughout the region

-Critical meetings were held with local governed officials and healthcare administrators. 

-I was able to visit the Kololo and Azedebo schools and spend some time with the students and teachers.

The following are a few photos from the trip...
