My Project

I Had a Tea Shop in Uganda

For my senior project I have worked on developing and opening a Tea Shop in Kasese, Uganda, with my friend and Kasese local, Mubarak Musoke. Our objective is to provide internet access for locals that would otherwise not have any in order to create global connections and job opportunities. Ultimately, this will assist many rural East-Africans to defy the odds placed against them by foreign powers and climb out of their inferiority complexes and into the global world. On a smaller scale the shop will additionally provide a clean environment with delicious food for both tourists and locals at reasonable prices.
