A few weeks ago AWB shipped by air cargo a 312kgs load of donated goods to Entebbe, Uganda on route to Mityani, a town about two hours drive to the west of the airport. Carolyn Taylor first visited the area in 2000 as a Scout Leader and Public Health Nurse and, wishing to help the local community and support their development, in 2007 started the Mityana Community Development Foundation of which she is now Chair of the trustees.
In June three expedition leaders spent 2 weeks in Tanzania to get organised for the trip next year. It was incredibly successful, and none of us wanted to come home again! We spent a lot of time arranging the building project, discussing camping arrangements, checking we could feed everybody, along with sorting vehicles, rest days and the relaxation period. We were really pleased with the progress made and can’t wait to go back next year.
