Last Friday was the final day of our short course at the African Rural University (ARU) in Kagadi, Uganda. For the final video diary of the program, Rachel and Akbar spoke with the founder and Vice-Chancellor, Dr. Mwalimu Musheshe, and the university secretary, Jacqueline Akello, to reflect on these two-week-long experience!
Please enjoy Rachel’s video:
Jacqueline called these two weeks an “enriching experience” for both students and professors, who both learned from each other. Dr. Musheshe cited three reasons why PROWIBO’s short course at ARU was so important. First on the list was the cross-cultural character of our partnership, which made it possible for people from “different areas of the world” to meet and learn from each other. The second was the invaluable skills and knowledge and the awareness of change the course brought. The final reason was the friendly character of the partnership between ARU and PROWIBO.
We would like to thank the students and administration at ARU for their enthusiasm and dedication to our programme! We would also like to thank Rachel and Akbar for donating their time and doing such a wonderful job with the courses.
