The bright red earth contrasts brilliantly with the vibrant green foliage and stark blue sky. Children run in the streets with dirty, bare feet and huge, satisfied smiles. We hear story after story of people who have experienced extreme suffering, yet often have so much joy.
We’d normally be hosting a trip to Uganda in July to visit our staff and members. But, as Uganda is still under a 42 day lockdown and we can’t travel with you to one of our most beloved places, we would like to virtually take you there.
In the small 6 person aircraft, Uganda from above is just like a storybook, green and red, with round straw “tukuls,” African homes.
But this allows for a very personable, joyful arrival.
There are also greetings and long-overdue hugs from our Seed Effect staff.
Co-Founder, Missy Williams leads the team in a prayer before the exciting week ahead.
There are very few paved roads, and most people don’t own cars, so the majority walk many miles walk to and from work and to the market for daily errands and groceries.
And it is always so special to see our team face to face.
“I was so impressed by the size of Seed Effect. I did not realize they employed so many people all around Northern Uganda. It was so much easier to understand the fast growth of Seed Effect due to the organization hierarchy. I was also so impressed by the passion the staff has for the organization.”
Thank you so much!
