“Yoga” (Hello) from Uganda

Micro-business for SalinaJambo! We are excited to launch the new blog of Trivani Foundation.  This site will serve as the forum for connecting you to the developments that are happening on-the-ground in the villages where the Trivani team is working. Each week, through Trivani Field Notes, we’ll introduce you to the members of our international team, communicate new and important events from the field and share the inspiring stories of the people whose lives are being changed through our partnerships.

We just returned from Uganda and Kenya where Chris Peterson (our new Programs Director) and I engaged in a three week visit to our project villages. We spent nearly two weeks in Uganda working with our In Country Manager Jane Agolo, to build our programs and extend our reach in the district of Kaberamaido. Since our last visit we discovered impressive infrastructure accomplishments at Asayo’s Wish Orphanage, unbelievable initiatives in the widows’ group, as well as significant successes in our primary school efforts.  The Choice-Trivani Kenya team, including Oreu, Fred and Bati, has seen incredible accomplishments through their efforts to systematically enlist and train village leaders throughout the Samburu region to initiate community self-development. We’ll tell you more about these efforts in the coming weeks.

Our goal is for this site is to be the hub through which you can interact with our team and become more involved in our work by sharing ideas, donating funds, and learning more about the culture and places where we work.

Apoyo Twa Twa (Thank you very much!)

Megan McMillan,Trivani Foundation Executive Director

    Thank you Megan.
    I, too, am looking forward to the blog. Wonderful! The humanitarian work is what makes Trivani so exciting. It will be wonderful to read more about it, share it, so it can help engage others to be guardians.
    Thanks again!
