Three Trainee Plumbers in Moyo

I recently went on a field trip to the West Nile Region with colleagues Martin and Isaac and driver Dennis. We were assessing vocational training institutes, four that we already work with and four that we may work with in the future.

As part of my assessment I got to move around the colleges meeting staff and students with Dennis the driver as the designated photographer .

It was a fascinating trip as none of us had ventured off the main road to Arua the main town in the region. This time we went down small side roads more like rocky paths finding colleges in the middle of the bush.

In true Ugandan fashion we didn’t have a map although I am not sure it would have helped much as most of the roads we were on were not marked.

Instead we checked Google maps at night and asked a lot .

We also didn’t bother to book accommodation in advance but would just arrive at the chosen town and look for the tallest newest buildings and ask the motorbike riders.

– food was more of a problem as there were very few options for food on the go and we could really afford to wait the mandatory two hours.
