Letter from Uganda No3

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 16:01

   On December 11th, we visited Iganga Village, where one of JOCV (Japan Overseas Cooperation Volunteers) members, Mr. Aoki, is working. This village was a place with no infrastructure – no service of water, electricity, or gas. We were warmly welcomed by the villagers, and spent time experiencing some of their everyday work, such as scooping water from the well, cooking meals, making charcoals, and a lot others. We also saw cows for agricultural use and a good furnace, both of which were given from Japan. Villagers were appreciative of Japan, and we were very proud of that.
   Even though we were unable to understand their language, we felt the warmth of the villagers, and were given a chance to think about what real wealth and happiness should be while looking back on our daily life filled with technology and convenience.
