I have recently been accepted as a Global Health Corps Fellow in the 2014-15 cohort. I will be working with Spark Microgrants to help establish six new health clinics (!) while living for a year in Mbale, Uganda. 
I previously helped to establish Zion Community Clinic near Mbale when I lived in Uganda in 2010. I couldn’t be more excited to return to Uganda to help bring access to healthcare to six more communities in this region. 
1000 Shillings, the organization I co-founded in 2012, is also based in Mbale. Therefore, this year provides an opportunity to spend a year with the ladies of 1000 Shillings and to help grow this organization! 
This blog has been used to document some of my experiences living in Nepal and Uganda in the past. I’m excited to keep sharing my story as I document my experiences as a Global Health Corps Fellow living in Mbale, Uganda.
