Headed to Africa today. Highlights included 1) Packed and repacked 3 times the backpack and the roly-poly suitcase named "Elvis" for all the rock and roll; (2) cleared out email and finished chores at home; (3) Steve took me to the airport around noon and we met up with all the others going; (4) Was asked to buy flashdrives for those in Karagwe so spent $170. out of pocket - gotta watch that; (5) Took off at 4:30 and sat next to a young man headed to London for a semester. He was worried about his auntie who had just had a brain aneurysm. (6) Landed Amsterdam in the early a.m.
Raised in a close, Minnesota farm family who took travel adventures all over the U.S. and Canada, I was introduced to community and global causes. I maintained a global focus with my husband and as a professor who helped build learning centers around the world. I resigned my university position and am President/CEO of a Minnesota-based nonprofit building KARUCO-Karagwe University College- in Tanzania. Our partners too are globally minded and intent on bettering their lives and economic condition. This blog will help tell the story.
