Of particular interest to Mr. Delisisi were the Biogas Digester built by US Army Cadets from West Point, and the farm which has been the focus of much of the work carried out by our Peace Corps volunteer Keith Miller.

The Ambassador was very impressed with the projects he saw and said that he was proud of the support American citizens have given to the children of the Kasiisi Project.
We are too – a huge thank you to all of you, even the ones who are not Americans!
