Help build Shelters and Schools in Uganda

Edwin Gombya - born in Uganda, raised in Britain and now lives and works in Japan as a teacher at an international school in Tokyo.
In 2015 my wife and I decided to save money for three years for a family trip to Africa and spend some time with our twin daughters in Uganda.
