2016 Volunteer Trip to Epi, Democratic Republic of the Congo

Category : Uncategorized

Here is a look at the trip taken by Apollo Kaagwa, an advisor to the RainShine Foundation and a founder of his own school in Kampala, Uganda.  This Summer, in wake of the death of our friend John Valk, Apollo volunteered to check on the school for us, establish new relations for RainShine and to see how the preparations for new school construction are going. RainShine founder, Rob Freedman, is heading back to the school in late 2016 to follow up on the administration of the school.
