I first became involved with KCF after meeting Elspeth at our local Nordic walking group. I was a Soroptimist at the time as is Elspeth so we had common ground but it was about a year after we first met she told me of her passion for Kumi and it's community. She's very modest about her achievments! I'd been on a few trips to different African nations but never Uganda. Think I must have passed since sort of test as she asked me to join her and Lynne on a visit. I was blown away by what I saw. It was so different to other projects I'd been involved with. Money raised is targeted and well spent, small amounts making so much difference. Circumstances of families in the community are very basic, and at times heart wrenching but on a visit somehow we remain objective and focus on what can be achieved for individuals and families. Our team in Kumi are quite incredible, working tirelessly to improve the lives of the community they are part of.
