Dispatches from Uganda


In October Douglas College sent 15 young Canadians to Uganda to do five-month internships in hospitals, aid centres, libraries and other agencies as part of a joint venture between the College, the Canadian International Development Agency and the country of Uganda.

Chelsea Peters (pictured), one of the participants, is working as a community education officer in the capital city of Kampala. She recently had a story on her experiences published in the North Shore News.
Nice work, Chelsea! Read her story and check out the pics here.

Interested in lending a hand? Chelsea's also set up a website detailing the projects in and around Kampala.
