Winfred did spend 4 weeks in Africa, traveling from Kigali where she has family and friends, but also contacts at government level, to her native region of Nyabuchozi to meet with the local people, share her ideas, and establish key relations for continued local management of our project, and finally to Kampala where she used her relationships to connect with government officials.
The objective of her trip, which was sponsored by Fast Track Consulting was twofold:
- develop a better understanding of the situation, the local needs, and the project opportunities
- establish contacts with local people, government authorities, and local contractors able to execute the project activities.
The results of this preliminary analysis are outright positive. There is a real need for the project that we propose, the people are enthusiast, and the local government will support the initiative (although not financially).
Upon her return, we have posted some pictures of her trip.
