This week we focused on gathering content for our Back to School fundraiser. We went on 4 home visits, where we had the pleasure of meeting with Mamas who had graduated from GHI’s program. It was absolutely incredible to see how far they had come. Most of the mamas we visited had beautiful gardens, healthy children, and spoke of how GHI had truly helped their family become and remain so much healthier. Most also spoke of how so many of the lessons taught in the trainings they still use, especially the One Pot One Hour and Listening & Communication trainings. The One Pot One Hour training is a cooking demonstration that shows Mamas how to cook a healthy, balanced meal for their families in one pot in one hour. This trainings saves many of them firewood, fuel, time, and provides them with more time to sleep every night. The Listening and Communication training focus on how to have difficult conversations with family and friends. While we would love to provide more details on these visits, we will be using the content we gathered in our fundraiser! So check out the GHI page in the coming months to check out what encountered!
Here’s a sneak peek from one of our home visits in Rubungo though 🙂

This week we are focusing on 4 more interviews (3 with home visits, 1 with a teacher), and are also working on our blog posts for the GHI blog.
Side note: Ryan also had the pleasure of going to Immigration/the Ugandan Embassy twice this week, because visas are fun! Thankfully, the Ugandan Embassy is much more helpful than the Rwandan Immigration office! Thanks to them, we will be headed to Kampala/Jinja this weekend for the long weekend (there is a holiday on Friday and Monday)!
