Yesterday I attended my first grant committee meeting. It was interesting that we got to see the grants and then discuss all the issues with them. We even had quite a bit of input as volunteers. To me, not having ever been on a Peace Corps committee before, it made Peace Corps seem a little more transparent. I enjoyed working with the Peace Corps staff and seeing their input on different issues. I also had the opportunity yesterday to close out my computer lab grant, so it’s officially done. Before I leave next year I will have one more grant committee meeting in February and I’m sure we will find some new education volunteers to take over.
Today I’m still in Kampala, but I’m heading up to Nebbi in a little bit for Thanksgiving. I’m making an apple pie and a pineapple pie, so I’m pretty excited!
