Today during a training with Neeta and Elaine the leaders of Buwea opened up about their top health concerns living here in east Africa, where access to good medical care is severely limited. They shared that they don’t have quality information about what types of vitamins and foods available locally can contribute to true health.
They also mentioned that their school-age daughters often miss a week of school when they are menstruating because they can’t afford feminine hygiene products. Together, WGC, Buwea, and UIW professor Neeta Singh have now decided to create a guide about Bukoba area health resources and information.
Meanwhile, WGC volunteer Jonathan Hardy was able to expound on his popular grief and loss talk with village leaders and WGC Associate Director Nicole Foy continued trainings on Internet technology in the main Buwea office.
