Project Report | Jun 30, 2020
Switching Gears

By Mariel Butan | COO

The ARTS Team was devastated to have to cancel our trip to Uganda in March 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but we were also determined to find a way to continue helping people take better care of their teeth. 

With the support of our loyal donors and local liaisons in Uganda and Senegal, we have been working on hygiene videos translated in Luganda and Pulaar to share as widely as possible in the areas we usually visit in person. This is a big change for an organization founded on the core value of face-to-face interactions and building relationships with individuals from other cultures, but what videos inherently lack in individuality, we hope they make up for with their ability to reach more people.

The videos are slated to be released in the next two weeks, so we encourage you to stay tuned to our Facebook and Instagram pages for more. Like most of the world, ARTS remains in a holding pattern. Nothing can replace the impact of providing direct care and education, so we will continue to monitor the situation to see when and how we will be able to safely return to doing what we love - helping people without access to dental professionals achieve and maintain a higher level of oral health.

Thank you for your continued support!
