Our American friend Peter Lund made it! He completed a circumnavigation of Lake victoria on his Bicycle for the benefit of PMKSFG!
By raising funds from his friends back home, Peter was able to fund his voyage, as well as contribute to the making of a documentary on the project. He and his film maker friends (who hail from Kampala University) traveled from Kampala to Tanzania, through Tanzania to Kenya, and through Kenya back to Kampala over five weeks.
Naturally the journey was quite an adventure. Many friends were made, some difficulties were had, but everyone came back in one piece. Peter was able to make many useful connections with professionals and helpful people on the way regarding the organization, who have expressed great interest in our work. We hope to recruit expertsfrom around the region to help us implement our community banking project!
Peter and PMKSFG would like to thank all the donors to this fund raiser, as well as our sponsors here in Uganda. Stay tuned for updates on the progress of the community bank!
