I’m sitting here in Entebbe, Uganda listing to the sound of traffic and muffled conversations in Luganda. For the past two weeks, I’ve been traveling around both Kenya and Uganda meeting the children and families Childcare Worldwide serves. It’s been an eye-opening and humbling experience. The families we serve are poor. And that’s clear when you see their mud houses with dirt floors, buzzing with flies. None of that surprised me – I knew their lives looked very different from my own. What did surprise me was the similarities I found between myself and these families.
