Fresh From Beijing

After my maiden overseas trip to Washington DC in April 2013, another rare opportunity for overseas travel came knocking for an all expense paid three weeks trip to Beijing China. The trips to Washington Dc and Beijing were both long trips/flights and i loved the challenges of overseas travel especially for someone who bad not been beyond neighbouring Kenya until recently. 

I enjoyed my stay in China and am looking forward to my next trravel experience. I attended an International Conference on Climate change in Guiyang City and attended a seminar on climate change for three weeks in Beijing. The training on climate change could not come at a better time of the year given that it had not rained for fourt month in Ngoma Sub County, most evidently due to  climate change, a phenomenon that is still new to most people in rural areas of Uganda. I am gald i can now train my community about climate change.

I continue to make friends for my organiosation and community during my travels,and, am excited about my new contacts, friends etc. The benefits from my Beijing trip can only be handled at national level for the larger comunity and am engaging some of the peoples' representatives so that we tap into what China has to offer to the local people particularly the people in my community. I will certainly keep you informed on any developments. 

I am looking forward to my next international engagement. It might take time to realise some of the things i want to do as a human being but am ready for the wait. I pray that you keep supporting this project for the benefit of the organisation and the entire community.

Thank you for the support
