Last month, Danielle visited Project DISC in Uganda, an organization that partners with schools to integrate farming and local food traditions into the regular routine of reading, writing, and arithmetic. Earlier this week, Edward Mukiibi, Project DISC project coordinator and teacher, wrote about the visit on the group’s blog. Explaining that his goal is to see his work with school children “copied all over the country and the world,” Edward hopes that through sharing his work with us, he is one step closer to that goal.
