We fell in love with Africa.
On July 12th, 2008, the 15 Board members of Softchoice Cares, Softchoice’s employee-inspired and employee-driven philanthropic outreach program, travelled to Kampala, Uganda for a two-week volunteer project. In addition to bringing donations to establish a new computer lab, Softchoice Cares volunteers provided computer training classes to increase computer literacy within the community. Helping to improve access to technology among those less fortunate was the primary focus of the trip, but it didn’t end there. We were fortunate to have the opportunity to experience much more. Orphaned babies who just wanted to be cuddled. Street kids who loved to dance. Smiling faces everywhere you turn. Open arms. Open Homes. Generosity, even from those with the least to give. Appreciation for the little things. Wild animals sharing their habitat and unique cultures struggling to hold on to their identity in the face of progress.
As you turn the pages of this book, we hope you can experience a bit of what we did, so that you can begin to share our passion. All profits from this book will be given to Softchoice Cares, so that those represented in the images on these pages will be around for generations to come.
Africa needs all of us to care. To care about its people. To care about its environment. To care about its wildlife. We fell in love with Africa. Now it’s your turn.
