To answer the basic questions...
I leave Toronto on Saturday, November 22, fly through Schiphol, and land in Kampala at 9 pm local time on Sunday, November 23.
I'm in Kampala until Tuesday, November 25th. (My colleagues will arrive midday Monday). I'll meet with our partner on the ground on Monday in Kampala, and he'll drive us to Kasese on Tuesday the 25th. We'll be in Kasese until the following Tuesday. Our goals are to work with our program partner and the director of the orphanage on budgets and upcoming program about the kids' education and work training, hang out with the kids, take pictures and videos that will support our fundraising work, tour the schools, meet with local officials, and make sure everything's in order. Maybe take the kids on a field trip.
I might try to take a day off on the final Monday and go to a nearby wildlife sanctuary for one night. And then, on December 2nd, back to Kampala, and then flying home on December 3rd. Will be back midday on the 4th.
And that, said John, is THAT.
