Volunteers Sustain and Grow Community Development

This spring I made a field visit to the village of Akokma on the southern shores of Lake Kyoga at the Akampala landing site. Landing sites are the centers of the Ugandan fish trade, where boats depart and return with their catch every day. World Renew had been to this place before, when we and our Ugandan partner, the Pentecostal Assemblies of God West Teso, began an Embrace AIDS and HIV Innovation Fund project there. I was returning exactly one year after the close of the project, curious to see if the community had been able to sustain the work that had begun years ago.
