    Reflections on my time in Uganda
    By - Margaret McGlynn Reynolds - CEO, Co-founder, Vice President

    Conflict in Africa
    By - Margaret McGlynn - Vice President

    By - Margaret McGlynn - Vice President
    In 2011, I first traveled on bumpy roads and dirt paths not found on maps to meet with children in Katulikirie schools who had received our nets.  Knowing the children who have received our nets makes my mission so much more personal.  Since I left, we have distributed nets to more than 10,000 of these...

It does.  Hundreds of people have mailed us or given us their old/broken costume jewelry.  We recycle all of the pieces—the beads, clasps, and any other materials. Our volunteers take this...

The trip was not luxurious--I was the only foreigner on the bus, and for good reason--a few months later, I read in the Ugandan paper that the same bus...
