An Adopt-a-Village project being carried out by Rotarians in Uganda and California, USA, is helping to improve life significantly for people in Nkondo, Uganda.

The project involves four of Rotary’s areas of focus: water and sanitation, basic education and literacy, disease prevention and treatment, and economic and community development.

An important catalyst to the effort’s success is the vocational training team (VTT), a group of professionals that travels either to learn more about their vocation or to teach local professionals about a particular field.
