baby kaelen

Earlier in December I had the privilege of photographing 4-week old Baby Kaelen. He was such a well-behaved little trooper; all smiley and attentive when he was awake, and so easy to pose when he fell asleep!

Congratulations Penny and Karthik!

kavule finally gets safe water!

Back in February, I visited a very special school in Mbale, Uganda. The Kavule Parents School for the Deaf is home to about 65 deaf and hearing impaired children. The school was in need of a new well, new latrines, handwashing stations and hygiene education materials (see more photos from my previous post).

Just this morning, the Ryan’s Well Foundation received word from Sam Kateu, the school’s founder, that the school now has safe water! From the Ryan’s Well Updates from the Field page: Sam writes “I am so pleased to confirm that the borehole installation was completed very well and hygiene and sanitation training of water user committee, children, staff, parents and the community was successfully done.”

Congratulations to Ryan’s Well, Rural Development Foundation and the Kavule Parents School for the Deaf!!
