Power of the Pennywhistle

Jul 31, 2023

"Before I join to music class, I used to work on the dry fish entrepot with my mother. Though I didn’t want to go but I had to go. And the rest of the time I used to stay at home or do homework or play with friends. But sometimes I used to feel bored. Now, after joining the music class I feel so happy. I love to sing songs, play notes, and pennywhistle. Now I can play 12 songs in Pennywhistle."[...]

Where I'm Meant to Be

Apr 20, 2016

As the weeks go by and I try to accomplish as much as I can on this short 7-week trip, I took a moment and thought about how I feel being back in Uganda. The SMF program has not only changed Ugandan lives, but it has changed mine as well. Even though I miss my students back home, my friends, my family, my 3 month old baby boy and my beautiful wife, I still don’t think there is any other place on earth I would rather be at this time. It feels right to be here now—I got here at the right time, at the right moment. Great things are happening with our program here in Uganda, and being part of it is a blessing.
